    Suppose A large asteroid is discovered to be on direct collision track with Earth in circa 90 days.

    How would the worlds leaders re-act? What would the say? How would Obama spin it?

    How would people the world over prepare for a certain cataclysm?

    I guess there would be Armageddon. And then a Deep Impact.

    Simpsons nailed this one I'm sure. Cut open each other's heads and feast on the goo inside...

    With much abandonment and a little alacrity.

    I'll get "come at me bro" tattoo'd across my arse. Go to the expected crash site of the asteroid, bend over and take it as it comes.

    The Christians would flee to the pub and the atheists would flock to the church.

    I think we'd gather the greatest minds on the planet to come up with the most rational and probable method to save us; sending deep-sea oil drillers to space.

    All radios would be forced to play Aerosmith 24/7. After a while, we'd welcome our impending doom.

    I'd have to plan my weekends carefully because work is busy at the moment.

    I imagine there would be a lot of scores settled.

    They probably say nothing and we'd probably wouldn't even know about it.

    Or lots of deep impacts and then Armageddon?


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,433 ✭✭✭✭kneemos


    Of all the possible causes of our annihilation it's probably the likely . There's even a hint of it in the Bible I think.

    I imagine they'd move up the release date for the new Star Wars film at least.

    Other than that we'd have 90 days to finally settle the score with the Brits.

    Confess my sins to the local Padre, and hold up at home with loved ones and crates of liquor and Marlboros.

    Somebody somewhere would take offense.

    but...we've been promised variations on this so many times, and so far
    a. the vast majority of people have ignored it and
    b. nothing has happened.

    More of the same.

    You should read the trilogy of books called the Last Policeman. It essentially follows the collapse of society as the world awaits a meteorite heading for the world that nobody can stop.

    I think we'd react to it like those "certain types of food are actually bad for you even though we thought they were good for you' info's
