Just as I'm stated to calm down about the whole end of the world thing, I get an e-mail stating: "NASA predicts giant asteroid to destroy Earth in 2019." I'd only be 39. My dreams of retirement in a vineyard somewhere in Provence is officially aborted, since the French countryside will be obliterated. These are the stats:
The asteroid is called 2002 NT7.
It will hit Earth on Feb 1, 2019.
Is 1.24 miles wide.
Will instantly dissolve an entire continent on impact.
The dinosaurs were knocked out by one measuring 9.34 miles wide.
Shit. I have some serious stuff to do before then:
1)Write a best seller
2)Go to Tokyo
3) Go to Mardi Gras, N'Orleans
4) Eat haggis
5) Do my photography course
6) Make a decent tom yum soup
7) throw a foam party.
Better get cracking then.
