But that doesn't mean we shouldn't be watchful. ;-)


Yeh, especially considering how much damage that one n 1908 caused...

That rock, estimated to be about 50 metres in length, sent a blast of heat and a shockwave with a likely energy equivalent of about 10 to 15 megatons of TNT, or about 1,000 times more powerful than the blast from the bomb dropped on Hiroshima during the Second World War.

An estimated 80 million trees covering more than 2,150 square kilometres were flattened, but only two deaths were reported in the sparsely populated region.

Yeah but he's getting old. I recommend we freeze him now to preserve him, then we can thaw him out for future use when our planet is in danger. ;-D

That wasn't a space rock, that was an alien spacecraft crashing. The captain hit the self-destruct button and they went up in a blaze of glory rather than being captured/discovered.

I agree, although Ben Affleck could likely fill the void if that fails.

Maybe we should just freeze Ben Afleck too, then we're guaranteed safety. ;-D

You should both be shot or beat constantly with a shoe for considering this. Affleck is a tool.

You've obviously not seen Armageddon, Bruce get's all the glory but he couldn't have done it without Ben. ;-D

Besides who will lead the other astronauts in Leaving on a Jet Plane if we don't have Ben? :-B

Oh, I saw Armageddon. And I've seen too much of these other "films" that Affleck's been in too. Makes me wonder if he was just acting like a hero in that movie. :-b
