we pay like 1.79 or so for a bottle of water up here.
I buy the big 8 litre 5 dollar jugs.. it lasts longer, and its got no poison in it like tap water.
lol just because its in a bottle does not mean it is safe. I used to be a water tester (water treatment system salesman lol) and i tested our 5 gallon jug of "safe" water and it was just as bad as the tap water. This was just one brand though. I also tested a different brand and it came out nice and clear.
About the shipping, I have been feeling compelled to stock up on food and water myself. I do not feel comfortable if I do not have a weeks worth of extra food and water extra. I know a week isnt much, but I used to just shop for what we needed for the next 5 or 6 days.

Dear L Brent Reynolds,
The object will pass about 1.4 Earth-Moon distances from Earth next week.
Plasma discharges are the least worrisome outcome of asteroid collisions.
See the following site:

So, your thoughts?

Actually, the Moon turns red moments before a lunar eclipse as the Sun slowly ducks behind Earth projecting the red color of dust onto the Moon.

I checked on the distance myself and it is still listed as 187,000 KM, that's between us and the moon. However, I believe when they make these calculations they start at the Earth center, so you shave off about another 4 thousand miles there alone. Since the ateroid will basically be coming up behind us and following for some distance, it is almost beyond any doubt that it is going to be sucked into the Earth's strongest gravity field. To find this point of no return you simply draw a line from the north and south poles ( I think it's 45 degrees into space)and where they intersect is where that point is. Anything outside the point is harmless, anything on it is potentially harmfull, and anything deep inside it... well... I think we all know what that would mean.

The BBC are still showing these weird, cryptic-esque images. Today during the six o'clock bulletin, in a segment about global warming, a large image of what clearly appeared to be an Earth-asteroid impact was displayed on the screen behind the newscaster.
