From a near-hit to a full-on hit. (Notice I didn't say "near miss." I refer you to the late George Carlin).
Or from a single-entry vehicle to a multiple-entry vehicle (which may or may not be better).

Interesting chart. 600 meters puts us in Category 9. Yikes.
A butterfly wing flutter could make it go “splat”!!
Pushing asteroids out of Earth’s path has good certainty though. Any nuclear force flinging debri perpendicular to it’s Earthly path, would have an equal and opposite force pushing the object away.
Maybe junior can do a high school term paper, but be sure to credit TheNext.
What are we gonna do?
I NEVER thought I’d see 50. Thought it was a made up number in my late teens and early 20s.
So there was no reason to save.
Then 30 came and the age thing got a little more real.
51 this year made it very real :)
Whatever’s gonna happen, you gotta plan in some way that you’re gonna be here till 80 or so.
Though the nephews and nieces took a beating betting against the one nephew who thought I’d see 50 :)
Good news: It’s slowing down in preparation for entry.
Well, it would make more sense for an interstellar vessel to enter into an “Aten” orbit around the sun rather than to try and enter orbit around the earth. Certainly has to be easier, I’d think and use a lot less retro-rockets.
All objects score a zero on the Torino Scale; keep your hair appointments and your electric bill on autopay.

Just make sure Thomas Sowell, VDH, and the other good guys from Hoover are evacuated first.
I was hoping for a strike on the District of Criminals.
We had a white kitty who recently died after a good 20+ year life. In his final couple of years, though he still ate well and had a good quality of life, he looked horrible. His real name was Devon but we started calling him Keith Richards because he looked like he was already dead.
I saw that. I just assumed we get hit, so 100%. That gives us a “Goodbye, nice knowing you” score of 9.
Please, please hit a DemocRat nest. Pleeeease.
possibly, but we both have a better chance of being struck by lightning 7 times on the same day than that scenario lol
