Cosmic naysayers believe the asteroid is, at least, four times the size of Jupiter, the largest planet in our Solar System. They think it will fly by the planet by year's end and destroy all life forms due to its inescapable gravitational pull.
 
don't you think that if something that freakin big was close enough to pass by earth in a couple of weeks, every amateur astronomer on the planet would have already seen it, months ago?

And you'd be reading newspapers at night by its reflected light by now.....  

 

Billions of years of evolution, and this is the best humanity has achieved?  It's enough to make one want the SMOD to arrive.

Some folks will believe anything they see on their computer.  Hardly the Best humanity has to offer.

We can see Jupiter from here with the naked eye, if that thing were 4 times that size and only 2 weeks away?!?  We'd already be feeling gravitational effects and it would be so huge in our sky we would likely be able to see it in the daytime.   Woooooooos indeed, really stupid wooooooos.

I know I post too many videos, but here VICE is really encouraging those already on the margins of sanity to take the plunge into the deep end. They're giving a voice to the literal tinfoil and led hat people.

also,  if it was 4x the size of Jupiter, wouldn't it be called a rouge planet instead of an asteroid?

"Rouge planet"?  Think we've already got one of those lying around somewhere....  A tad smaller than Jupiter, tho'.  :moose:

Not to be confused with a Rogue planet?
