what i didnt understand was how it could cause earthquakes/storms/nasal mucus.
if the gravity of this small piece of space rock could affect our planet from such a great distance, then how come the moon or mars/venus dont cause daily earthquakes and storms..... i just dont get it.
and the numerology/anagram crowd provide interesting reading
maybe the trail which the earth will pass through could conk out communication and our satellites.
we could have a spectacular meteor shower too
and even if it is the end of the world, so be it.... we all gotta die one day
oh and wont the earths gravity mess wid the comet, like break it up or something?

The way i had it explained too me was,, if u fill a bucket of water,,and swing it in a circular motion,,centrifical Force,
acts on the watwr,, and it does not fall out of orbit/pail.
There are pictures posted on ATS of the top 2011, pics in Astronomy,,
It really explains well ,,what i mean.
At least that was how it was explained too me when i was a kid,,,years ago.

well one problem is everyone saying it is an icy ball. this is false . nasa has admitted that not all comets are just ice balls but actually balls of rock or iron. or a myriad of other choices. the possibilities are endless to what the compositions could be.
