    Science Comet elenin won't kill us, says nasa

    link

    You may have seen the scary headlines. You may have read those alarming emails. But do you believe it? Just in case, NASA has issued the facts about a comet called Elenin. And no, these aren't the "facts" doomsayers will tell you.

    In short, the 3-5 kilometer-wide comet can't hurt us. Really, it can't. It's too small and its closest approach to Earth will bring it 90 times the Earth-moon distance. 90 times the Earth-moon distance. That's a whopping 35 million kilometers (22 million miles) away. Could there be any conceivable impact to our everyday lives by this dirty snowball?

    Well ****. What am I going to do with this zombie survival kit now...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    You know what, though? If something was going to impact the Earth, I'm pretty sure they'd keep it secret so that we wouldn't descend into a full-blown anarchy.
