We can expect a totally different kind of trick-or-treater this coming Halloween. A rather large asteroid—discovered less than three weeks ago—is set to to fly past the Earth at a distance not seen in nearly a decade.

The asteroid, dubbed 2015 TB145, was discovered on October 10 by astronomers using the Pan-STARRS telescope. The object measures about 280 to 620 meters (920 to 2,034 feet) in diameter, so it’s pretty big—about the size of a skyscraper. Or two. Not only that, it’s moving at a velocity of 35 km/s (78,830 mph or 12,600 km/h), which NASA describes as “unusually high.”

It's gonna' be pretty close in astronomical terms. Disturbing an object of this size was not even detected until a few weeks ago.

The Bolsheviks - the Nazis - the Terrorists - the Asteroids.

Funny, how everything seems to play out just like the worst tinfoil hatters always said it would.

Don't worry. I'm already on it.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Oh wow!

All time favourite paygame, hands down!


Ate all my [Image: 1964-1-markka-b-pieni.png] back in the 80's.

But being the undisputed Town Champ for years on end was well worth it.
