Astronomers say that the Earth will pass within a million miles of a 4.6 X 2.9 kilometer asteroid this coming Wednesday morning. Despite rumors to the contrary, scientists say they are certain it will not collide with Earth. Were it do so, however, it would likely wipe out civilization, lead to the end of humanity, and throw our planet into a massive ice age lasting tens of thousands of years.
On the plus side, it would also put a stop to those asinine reality TV shows.
The way things have been going lately, though, it wouldn't surprise me if the damn thing were to hit Florida.
