One more thing to worry about
By Tom Smith

The odds that we'll all die from an asteroid strike are better (worse) than you think. Certainly much greater than winning the California lottery, and much less fun. Via VC.

I like to stand under the stars and drink scotch while my computerized telescope finds obscure objects for me. I'm probably not going see anything before it hits us. Here's a picture of my telescope. I'll let you know if I see any big rocks coming our way. I've often wondered what I would do if I saw something big land in the Pacific to my west, and a giant wave coming my way. I think it's another reason I need an SUV.
