Almost the End?

Posted by AlienCG on March 4, 2009

Does anybody realize it could have been the end of the world on Monday?  Yes, that’s right, a meteor passed within 48,000 miles of the earth at about 8:40am Monday morning.  It was almost 115 feet wide and could have done some damage if it had entered the atmosphere.  This leads me to a question.  If you found out that there was a meteor on a collision course with the earth, and no technology exists to dispatch it before it strikes in one week (this makes doomsday inevitable), how are you going to spend that final week of existence?

I would give up looking for a job, get together with as many friends and family as possible, spend all of my cash on whatever, go to Tony Packo’s in Toledo for a final meal and finally kiss my ass goodbye.

By the way, Trivial Tuesday is still open for answers, nobody got all ten correct.  Have a good evening.

    I did hear about our close call the other day! Something about, if it had hit us it would’ve been with the force of ten hurricanes or something like that.

    One thing’s for sure about that final week, I would give up trying to make our files at work perfect – hell I’d stop going to work. I’d eat as much fattening, delicious food as possible and yeah, I’d hang out with friends and family for as long as possible before the very end.

    I’d spend the end of days in Disneyland, the happiest place on Earth.

    I had no idea I was in harm’s way. Hm. Probably just as well, because when asked to imagine what I’d do with my final week I keep picturing myself curled up in the fetal position whimpering. Hopefully, I would be brave though, and enjoy good times with my family and friends.
