Close Call


We almost died today ... and nobody even knows it.

Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating just a little, but we did narrowly missed being hammered by a bus-sized asteroid.

Seriously.

Today, at about 10:30 am, asteroid 2012 BX34 missed us by only 36,750 miles. That's so close, it actually flew between the Earth and the Moon!

Although I cannot be sure, since the asteroid did not actually pass close enough for me to take samples, I'm fairly certain that, if the asteroid would've hit us, it would've broken up on Earth's surface, releasing dangerous space mold spores that would turn humans into zombies, bringing about the zombie apocalypse.

And that's not the first near collision we've had. Earlier in the week, a smaller asteroid passed us just on the other side of the moon. Sure it was small, and it was far away, and it probably wouldn't have made it through the atmosphere, But I'm pretty sure it too contained zombified mold spores.

So, you see folks? It really would be a good idea to heed my advice about the coming zombie apocalypse.

Until next time, folks ... if there is a next time ... prepare yourselves. And have a great day!
