    Heh scary/chilling indeed, but author said only for entertainment, now if that simulation was from NASA or some astronomical institute then it'd be scary..

    Why is youtube going so slow?!?!?!?!?! I have to wait at least 10 minutes for it to buffer before I can watch it :( Is it going slow for anyone else? It's been doing this for the past few days, going at 10-15KB/s :banghead::banghead:

    this is nothing to be afraid or surprised about, as a matter of fact there is a 100% chance that the earth will be hit by a metear/asteroid, won't happen in our lives though, . . .

    O? Won't happen in our lives? How can you be so sure? Just because we havn't found anything? People look for things and sometimes can't find them, and they usually know exactly what it is. We don't know what we're looking for. The only guideline we have is something capable of causing a catrastophe on Earth. There's trillions of objects in our solar system alone.

    Even if we knew of certian doom coming tomorrow, even if it's something like this there's no reason to be afraid. It's not like resident evil where there's a small chance of survival. If something like this is on our way we're screwed.

    yeah, thats right, even though we do look for them now, its still a good chance one will get by since we don't have the technology to look that far or wide into space, but even so, all I could say in that situation is, . . . . well it was fun guys but . . . . you know.

    but it would really suck if i said this now and they made some kind of life extension drug and we get hit by a meteor and I was still alive, OH THE IRONY.

    Thats basically how life began on Terra in the first place, its inevitable and fitting that time would dictate Terras life shall end in the same way for a whole new life to thrive. If another dead planet smashed into Terra (as the size would indicate in that vid) you wouldnt know anything of it apart from a massive earthquake like tremour, and when it got close enough instant death. Its also feasible that unless the 2 planets manage to meld together sufficiently the planet would just be ripped apart.

    Thats everything in a non-tech detail nutshell.

    lol.. humans will never colonise other planets until we get over our own greed and realise money is nothing but paper. Until that day things like terra forming will always be deemed "too expensive"

    Space colonies? Then instead of people trying to just conquer the world, people would be trying to conquer the space colonies as well.

    That rock is damn huge, like the size of pluto. Its nice to know that they think something that huge is sitting in the mass of rocks outside the solar system.

    Actually.. Pluto could be a planet. Just because its mass is deemed just inadequate enough to not be a Planet, doesnt make it so.

    Pluto is actually a lot larger than that thing anyway. We could only imagine what that thing could do if it hit earth. Boo, they want to kill us like this...I want to be around to see the Milky Way & Andromeda collide :p
