Asteroids scare me – until I have my first cup of coffee
I opened the newspaper this morning to find that Asteroid 2012 DA14 is Heading for Earth. Apparently, this asteroid (with a less than groovy name) is the size of bus. I’m thinking they should probably have called it The Number 42, but I’m not sure if it’s one of those double-decker buses or just a regular one – I guess if it hits you on the head it’s not going to make a hell of a lot of difference. Then in the fine print I found that even though it’s heading for Earth, it’s actually not going to hit Earth. Phew! You had me going there for a minute…
Now I’m on my third cup and have switched between WIPs several times so I thought I should ramp it up a gear and give you something intriguing to
numb your mind read.
Another interesting news article that caught my eye was Banning of Plastic Bags Can Cause Death in Humans – WOAH! Apparently the University of Pennsylvania has come up with this beauty and the fine print tells us that reusable grocery bags that have contained meat and are left in the car boot for some time could grow harmful bacteria. Apparently, people then reuse these poisonous bags for the veggies and… well, I’m not a university professor but I think I know what happens next…
Then I did some online reseach for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift and found one that would suit the person who has everything (including reusable grocery bags containing stinky old meat juice).
Have you run across any odd news items lately? Do you sometimes look at headlines and think WTF (if my mother is reading this – WTF means “Wednesday, Thursday, Friday”) 😀
