4179 Toutatis,anyone worried?

#5
Toutatis has been observed with radar imaging from the Arecibo Observatory and the Goldstone Solar System Radar during the asteroid's prior Earth flybys in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, and 2008. It will also be observed with radar during the December 2012 flyby and potentially during the more distant flyby in 2016.[18] After 2016, Toutatis will not pass close to Earth again until 2069. The resolution of the radar images is as fine as 7.5 m, providing a very detailed model of Toutatis' shape and spin state.

Blimey...

You are of course right and we're all doomed. You should make your peace with God and, in particular, remember Jesus' point that it is easier for a camel to pass thorugh the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. As a special service to my fellow man I am prepared to take on the burden of being that rich man and will willing relieve you of all your worldly wealth. Cheques, cash or postal orders accepted.

I think I've left the gas on.
Wow, hassle. I feel for you Bro. You have bought one of my Hats of Protection made from tinfoil mined in the Mines of Pocahontas, yes?

Shit. SHIT. I said 'hats'. This is all going to go shit-shaped, isn't it?

Whilst I am C of E and do my best to breeze along with the vicar and sing hymns in church and that, one cannot help but feel that sometimes Jesus had been on the piss and was spouting shite?

Well, you should really have gone to the mines of Les Baux-De-Provence although they are now worked out but Group Pechiney have a wonderful mining operation in Conakry Guinea who probably mine the best quality bauxite so essential in the manufacture of good quality tinfoil.

A man who felt the driving urge to turn water into wine has to be wondered about.

Is 'apostle' ancient Aramaic for 'my beshtesht mate inallaworld'?

He was interviewing St Peter for the job as doorman, so he'd know the admissions policy

I don't know about 4179 Toutatis, but I see thousands of Zulus and it's worrying me a bit.


Where's my Martini-Henry?
