In a close shave, an asteroid about half the size of a football field will miss Earth by 27,680 kilometres on February 15, the closest asteroid in recorded history to buzz past our planet, Nasa scientists say. "This is a record setting close approach," said Don Yeomans of Nasa's near earth object programme at jet propulsion laboratory. More here
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Heard about it in a german documentary recently.

Chances are higher it crashes on the planets surface than winning the lottery in germany. wooo. :jedi:

edit: sorry that's the other huge asteroid... forgot it's name... amophis or something ;)
Get the wanting out of waiting

What does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address. – SN 5.2

If they take what's yours, tell yourself that you're making it a gift.
Otherwise there will be no end to the animosity. - Ajahn Fuang Jotiko

THe LOLcat army need to try a bit harder if they want to invade Earth.

It's today! You see it with binoculars. Doesn't move very fast though so it won't be spectacular. Just a bright dot, like a star.
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.
