    I'm a couple of days off, but here's the news anyway even though it's nothing really new, a lot of us are supposed to die by 2036 by asteroid impact or so those scientists say...again.

    I'll be 44.

    But you said a lot of us, so do you know which part of the Earth will be hit by that flying rock?

    Of course you all realise this is a distraction, to take away peoples focus from the worlds genuine dangers. Things like terrorism, asteroids, global warming etc are all frauds used to distract us from the real issues! Such as the plundering and nationalisation of the worlds economy, the gradual erosion of peoples civil liberties worldwide, the breakdown of society and the family unit and the fact that unjust, unwarranted wars are being waged worldwide for the profit of a few wealthy elite, and to seize control of the worldwide drugs and oil markets!

    So yeah keep on worrying about rocks falling from the sky in 30 years guys! [​IMG]

    Hmm, I think it would be rather cool to experience and see an asteroid hit the earth. Sure we would all be dead afterwards but for the time being it would be cool to watch. I love astronomy.

    But the article never states where it's going to hit. It just states the blow could devastate something as big as Europe [​IMG]

    The earth is going to die in 2012 anyway..
    So who cares?
    Oh, and didn't we have time machines?
    And wasn't the world already destroyed because of that timemachine?

    The mechs in 15 years will be more animal-like such Zoids which are mostly quadrupeds but six legged, eight legged, and flying types would be available, because scientists won't be able to stabilize the bipeds given the technology in 15 years. If there are bipedal mechs, they would be the reverse jointed type similar to a type of Armored Core if you played any of the games.
