    This is amazing and at the same time scary. It may not be realistic but cool none the less.

    Watching that is surreal.

    I wonder if I'd rather die a normal, individual death, or if I'd rather go out at the same time as every other person on the planet in a giant natural disaster?

    If an asteroid that size hit, the only survivors would be very small and specific populations of bacteria that live in isolated and extreme environments...

    Someone's been watching her discovery channel while away on her business trip :mrgreen:

    ...I kid, but I watch that stuff too; especially since this week is shark week, haha.

    Well, I don't think you'd see much really! You'd probably be incinerated before you even knew what was going on!

    Well since Biff is smart and doesn't have to watch th discovery channel, has anyone else seen their show about the top ten ways we're going to go? It's kinda crazy to think that there is even one thing out there that could destroy our planet let alone 10...I didn't watch the whole thing, but I heard at the end they revealed the butler did it...with a lead pipe in the conservatory.

    Question presented to me while we were watching this at work.
    Would you want to know if and when this was going to happen if it were going to happen?

    I said NO.

    With my luck, I would find out, sell everything I own, take all that money plus whatever other cash I could amass, get my butt to Vegas, party/gamble/do-some-of-that-"what happens here, stays here"-kind-of-things my money away only to wake up in the street in a pool of my own vomit, a nasty hangover, and missing my pants (if there is a god, the pants would be missing, haha); only then I would find out that it wasn't for another year or something.

    Long story short...don't tell me either, haha
