Comet Elenin not a global killer...

asteroidsFor some reason, my mind has been haunted with the vision of the Earth being rendered lifeless by this Comet Elenin that’s expected to pass precariously close to the Earth some time in October (presumably the 16th), 2011.

 The comet, said by many on the fringe of rational thought to be the Doomsday device predicted to arrive in the Mayan long count calendars (which, for the record, is NOT predicted in any Mayan writings… especially the Mayan Calendar), destined to strike the Earth… wiping out all life forms in the process.

And for some reason, every night- as I close my eyes- I see the Earth set a cinder by the blast created by this asteroid strike.  The sky darkened with thick plumes of lifeless earthsmoke and clouds of dust.  Those unlucky enough to be found near the point of impact are vaporized instantaneously; their ashen remains clogging the noses of those still trying to cling for life with every impeded breath.

And then comes the cold…

This is what I see every night when I close my eyes…

But thank God NASA took time out of its slow and steady decline into irrelevance to post up a Q&A between two scientists intended to still my fearful heart by laying truth where an always ill-fated combination of marijuana and Coast to Coast AM laid nothing but uninformed paranoia and utter terror…

comet-eleninThe scientists, a Don Yeomans of NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. and David Morrison of the NASA Astrobiology Institute at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. (not to mention the unofficial NASA debunker of any and all 2012 Doomsday questions), are quite sure that there is no threat to the Earth by the soon to arrive flying object.

"So you've got a modest-sized icy dirtball that is getting no closer than 35 million kilometers," said Yeomans. "It will have an immeasurably minuscule influence on our planet. By comparison, my subcompact automobile exerts a greater influence on the ocean's tides than comet Elenin ever will.”

That’s pretty confident about all this shit, if you ask me.

But just in case you are still not totally sold as to why our government has been so flippant about this potentially devastating event, here’s how NASA explains their reasoning for the ignoring of the issue in the press release intended to announce to the world where this Q&A can be found.

 "Comet Elenin hasn't received much press precisely because it is small and faint. Several new comets are discovered each year, and you don't normally hear about them either.  The truth is that Elenin has received much more attention than it deserves due to a variety of Internet postings that are untrue."

This is the eeeeeeeeeend….

I don’t know about you guys but this did make me feel a little better about the whole Elenin nonsense…

Not that I ever thought it was going to strike the Earth or anything… That would work out all too well with all the ancient mumbo jumbo carnies are making a pretty penny getting all of us wound up over.

But nothing is going to happen in October (except for Constitutional editor Ian Handleman, who will be killing “Independent Ian” in October) ... NASA said…

But then again…

If you did foresee nothing but a Doomsday scenario playing out for us in the next few months, would you really tell everyone???
