For only the seven hundredth time in my life, a new doomsday has been calculated. The dreaded date: March 21st, 2014. This one actually has some credence, however. Scientists have discovered a giant asteroid hurtling toward Earth, but only give it a 1 in 909,000 chance of hitting our home. You know, slightly better than your chances of being hit by lightning or being attacked by a shark. But scientists are quick to add that the odds should go down as more data is gathered. Yeah, sure, like they are going to actually up the odds and tell the public. They're probably building spacefaring Arks right now and loading them up with rich folks, royalty, and scientists to populate a new world while we just sit here and suck it.

While the chances of being wiped off the face of the Earth are "pretty slim", they are still giving this particular piece of space debris a good look. It probably has something to do with the impact of such a rock to be comparable to 20 million Hiroshima atomic bombs! MUHAHAHAHAHA! Another thing is that is interesting is the fact that the Aztecs predicted the last day of Earth as being the same date, but in 2013. One year off, that ain't so bad.
