News Headline: “Massive asteroid will pass closer to Earth than the moon, NASA warns.”
That would be Asteroid 2019 GC6.
It is passing today.
But let’s not be carried away.
The last time an asteroid passed between Earth and the moon was almost six days ago.
And that asteroid was the first to pass between Earth and the moon in 12 days before that.
And nothing–not a single asteroid passing between Earth and the moon–for three days before that.
So can we stop it with the scare headlines?
News Headline: “Michele Bachmann hails ‘godly’ Trump.”
Add God to the list of things that aren’t what they used to be.
News Headline: “Donald Trump’s schedule is not overloaded.”
But understatement is alive and well.
News Headline: “Donald Trump on Mueller’s appointment: ‘This is the end of my presidency. I’m f—–d.’ ”
There is an old saying.
Nothing good happens fast.
News Headline: “Astronomers watch a donut rotate around a massive black hole.”
News Headline: “Antarctic meteorite tells the tale of an asteroid that ate a comet.”
So the universe remains a vast, cold and indifferent place.
News Headline: “Stalin’s approval rating among Russians hits record high.”
Make Russia Great Again.
News Headline: “Supreme Court justices do verbal gymnastics to avoid saying ‘vulgar’ name of fashion brand.”
That would be the FUCT brand.
Good prep for any future appeals from the TRUMP brand.
News Headline: “April’s awakening brings abundant spring flowers.”
This is the Intelligent Designer.
News Headline: “Sea spiders in Antarctica breathe through holes in their legs.”
This is the Intelligent Designer on drugs.
News Headline: “What is Donald Trump hiding?”
News Headline: “What is Trump hiding in his tax returns?”
News Headline: “What is Trump hiding at Mar-a-Lago?”
News Headline: “So, what is Trump hiding?”
Not that he’s hiding anything, mind you.
