    What if it wasn't a comet ?

    What if it was a camouflaged UFO ?

    Surely this would be regarded as an act of war ?!

    Was NASA a tad irresponsible here ?!

    Don't know about that, but found the "let's blow it up and see what happens" approach to be quintessentially American!

    That’s a bit of a scenario from sci-fi I remember one covered in a
    Outer Limits where there is a spaceship coming to Earth and the 2 super powers did not know if it is friendly or a foe (wont say what happens as it would be a spoiler).

    Surly if anything like the above the alien race should be that advanced to realise what was happening.

    An alien David Attenborough-type, pootling around the Universe with a film crew in a space ship disguised as a meteorite so it can blend in with its surroundings - it wouldn't be carrying any defensive capabilities... :oops:

    "Probe hits Comet."

    About time too - I hate the way they try and hard sell you on their WMDs (Warranty of Mass Deception)

    Just got to convince the yanks to target Currys and Dixons next and we'll be sorted.

    I reckon its on a collision course with Earth and they've disguised an attempt to knock it off course as a scientific experiment.

    Lets face it if they told us we only had 5 years left before a comet wipes us out by the time it hits things would have descended into anarchy.

    There's also the flip side to that. The comet was on course to pass the earth at a safe distance. Nasa have just changed it's direction our way!!

    There's a great comment in today's Metro.
    Wonder if her horoscopes included the comet before she learnt Nasa were going to start chucking washing machines at it.Also, £150million!!! How much has her horoscope changed. Used to read "You will win the lottery next year". Now reads "You will be torn apart by rabid hedgehogs next year."

    There's an article on the BBC about this. She sounds very strange:
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4649987.stm

    Her lawyers are equally as strange as she is:

    Sounds like easy money if she wins though. I might have a go myself.
