    Right, here's what we do. Send a nuclear missile up to Apophis, 150 miles before impact, detonate the warhead. The blast will knock Apophis off it's collision course with Earth. Humans get to live to see the next life-threatening disaster.:D

    No. No. No. Everyone knows that you need to drill into the asteroid and detonate the warhead from within.

    NO, no, no, no, we all know you take a nuclear weapon and blow it to two pieces, sure we will have a high chance of one or BOTH pieces hitting us, but it will only be smaller.:p


    the remaning humans will be the most powerful hominids that lived in this planet due to Darwain's Natural Selection theory, enabiling humans to tolerate huge levels of radiation.

    No, no, no, no, your all wrong, you need to make an equally sized asteroid and collide the two.

    Nyet, nyet, nyet. Must meet NASA scientifics and show them error of ways. Then plan joint mission with aging action heroes. USA provides crazy television coverage and cheap lawn chairs for spectators. We provide cheap nukes and vodka.

    In capitalist America, you go to space. But in Soviet Russia, space comes to you!

    Why not let the Ruskies fail then show them how to do it with American knowhow and Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner, and Donald Sutherland?

    Why not just relax? Your "God" will surely correct the fundamental flaw in his design before anything unfortunate takes place. I mean, he didn't let any floods, earthquakes, famine, pestilence or tsunamis happen before, did he?

    Of course the NASA isn't worried about the Apophis asteroid hitting Earth. They've got a Goa'uld cargo ship that Jack, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c can use to save us from Apophis...again. It's old hat for them.

    Wait, wait, wait. What if you end up in Vault 15 (Necropolis)? There's no guarantee that you'll end up in Vault 13 or Vault 8 (Vault City). I'm trying to find the fabled Vault Sexteen I keep hearing about in Fallout 2.:D

    No, no, no. Its Obama's fault because he's in office... or did he inherit the problem from GW... or did GW inherit it from Clinton.... politics are so confusing. :confused:

    Would it be wrong for me to cross out Kohoutek off my ceremonial robes and write Apophis in? I mean they are a really nice polyester and I don't want to buy new ones.

    If we have to replay Armageddon for real, can we at least get the chick from Lord of the Rings on TV for it again? :)
