No big deal, an asteroid is about to barely miss Earth

dave chappelle asteroidCNN – While most are worried about a winter storm bringing little snowflakes of a foot or more, the news networks forgot to mention how the entire globe could be destroyed in a week. According to NASA scientists have discovered an asteroid that is scheduled to arrive close to the Earth’s atmosphere on February 15th. The large rock about 45 meters long or in man terms about a half a football field big, ┬áisn’t worrying scientists. The brains in NASA say that this large rock is only going to be flying by us and will remain about 17,000 miles from our surface. While we don’t have too much to be concerned about, it’s still fucking crazy that this huge rock traveling at 8x the speed of a bullet is going to be crossing paths with us.
