Remember there was a huge 'crash' in the stock market the past few days. However, today the market bounced back up pretty well; not great though.
I think its quite possible the two events are linked in some way, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
There's been a lot of talk of war recently as well.
Something big is up, and I don't know if this is THE event, but we're getting close for sure.

Hildar yep you got it right! All these observatories and astronomers claiming TU24 is not gonna hit are Idiots! Did they get their degrees from Walmart!?
Their have been numerous links or even emails in this thread from LEGIT REAL astronomers/observatories saying this thing will not hit . Yet you people insist to think it will.
If you believe everyone is in on a conspiracy from Nasa to major observatories to your backyard astronomer i suggest you take a trip to the Dr Phil show..

You may repeat that as many times as you need to on Jan 30 until you feel properly silly for believing this nonsense.

I could care less about the thing hitting the earth. Not enough size, not guaranteed to kill me.
My larger concern would be, 'Where did these two asteroids flying by us and mars just 'arrive' from? This could just be a head fake. We need to be looking 'behind' these things also.
A secondary concern for me would be a moon strike raining crap down on us for awhile.
I wasn't aware from the flood of information about this asteroid that so many astronomers were tracking and collaborating together. Or, are you referring to BadAstronomy.com? Well if that guy says so, then it must be true.
I feel so much better now that you also pointed out that NASA said we are all completely safe and shouldn't care about it.
I'm sure the crew members of Columbia felt the same way when they were told not to worry about that pesky little piece of foam.

Space is mostly a vacuum. There's no 'suck' effect like with a truck, and it would be traveling too fast and too far away to be captured by gravity. I don't believe everything that comes out of NASA either, but it is not just NASA telling everyone who asks that it is not going to hit.
I haven't seen any one give conclusive solid evidence that is going to hit, and I won't believe it is going to hit until I bloody well see it hurtling in my direction.
Oh, and my ass is freely available for a public kicking if something happens. I'm betting my ass!
