Save the Date
Darko. Paging Donnie Darko. A preliminary orbit suggests that 2002 NT7 is on an mpact course with Earth on 1 February 2019, although the uncertainties are large. That's the thing about uncertainties, isn't it?

Not Donnie Darko. Frickin Dubya Bush! Morgan Freeman! Maybe Ariel Sharon has already launched a pre-emptive strike and blew it to smithereens.
For all our failings as a race, it's funny to think we have the means to prevent the extinction of our planet. Maybe.
Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, and Liv Tyler are my choices for who gets to save me. And that big guy from The Green Mile. He's in there, too.
I thought it was Ving Rhames. Different big (black) guy. Anyhow, I liked Deep Impact better for some reason. Call me soft, girly, whatever. But that tidal wave was pretty spectacular.
