Scientists have now confirmed that an asteroid has a fairly good chance of colliding with earth! The orbit of asteroid 1950 DA will coincide with the orbit of earth on March 16th, 2880! Start packing up now, my god!

I think the Weekly World News has been reporting this for the last 878 years.

So they computed the exact date it would cross our orbit, but they didn't compute whether or not the planet will be in place then? I could compute that. These are some lazy-ass scientists. I bet they're supposed to do some really hard work with the Hubble but are procrastinating by looking up asteroids.
