A few years ago, I was reading some articles on CNNs website. A story there peaked my interest. There was an article that stated that a
"catastrophic meteor or asteroid", one that would destroy all or most life on the planet occurred once every million years. The article went on to
mention that the last such meteor was the one that eliminated the dinosaurs-- about sixty five million years ago.
I am not exceptionally brilliant at math but this assertion gave me pause to think. A "killer" meteor or asteroid hits the earth once every
million years and the last one hit us sixty five million years ago. Hmmmmmmmm. After that, all I could think about is that we are seriously overdue
for a killer meteor or else there are sixty five of these "killers" are heading our way right now. I know that this is irrational but, then, maybe
What's YOUR irrational fear?
