    I just wish the car's cameras had a lasting power source. It would be way too much fun to see it spinning past Mars. Granted, I don't know off hand how close it will actually pass by, but I know it crosses that orbit, at least from a 2D perspective.

    If its a small asteroid just big enough destroy a building, I hope it hits the Capitol House side while Nancy Pelosi is giving another "Why I hate the white race" speech, to an empty chamber.

    we could launch Hillary and park her next to it. The gravitational pull from her mass is enough to alter the asteroids orbital path. We just need a rocket powerful enough to get her into space which is the problem.

    That is very close and it's frightening. What if it fell in the Atlantic, and not in Siberia as they usually do?

    Close only counts in horseshoes. If it fell in the Atlantic it would produce a pretty spectacular tsunami. We all know that.

    What if it hit the capital building while they were all in session, would the wars stop? I think they would.

    Actually I think everyone in the world would be so happy they would be kissing one another - except maybe for the terrorists and Nazis. But then again without Washington's support, they would have no choice but to stop what they are doing and be forced to kiss and hug whether they like it or not.

    A great Orthodox Saint in Mount Athos, when visited by an American congressman in the 90's refused to speak to him. The Saint said that without the US, there would be no wars. When Klitschko went to Mount Athos and tried to bribe the monasteries with loads of money to officially recognize the Ukrainian Church which was not under Moscow, they were upset on how he managed to get on the mountain. I guess you can't buy everything.
