Elenin has broken in 2! Someone asks how do we know? The answer back from the smart people is we don't know because we couldn't really tell you what it was in the first place. But we can make # up just watch us.
When you don't know STFU should be the way to go.
You don't know anything. You can't tell me if its a brown D star a Comet a flying ford pick up.
It has lined up with the earth 3 times and we have had 3 big quakes.
Or someone on ATS thinks because I read a blog on web site I know the answer!
Why can you people just say you don't know here are the 3/4 things that could happen.
What is wrong with everyone? Just listen to what your saying.

Its like if i tell myself I know whats going to happen with no science or data or not one good hard fact maybe I shouldn't talk.

So as we know its C so this is a good place to start. So as we don't know what it is lets make # up.
I would love to see you lot getting your car fixed. No Sir I don't know whats wrong but lets start with the car radio that must be the reason it doesn't start.
Yes I am way to stupid no know anything about whats going on.
NASA go out of its way to tell everyone were and when to stand around and watch this stuff. Not this time.
Often, comets are portrayed as harbingers of gloom and doom in movies and on television, but most pose no threat to Earth. Comet Elenin, the latest comet to visit our inner solar system, is no exception. Elenin will pass about 22 million miles (35 million kilometers) from Earth during its closest approach on Oct. 16, 2011. Also known by its astronomical name C/2010 X1, the comet was first detected on Dec. 10, 2010 by Leonid Elenin, an observer in Lyubertsy, Russia, who made the discovery "remotely" using an observatory in New Mexico. At that time, Elenin was about 401 million miles (647 million kilometers) from Earth. Since its discovery, Comet Elenin has – as all comets do – closed the distance to Earth's vicinity as it makes its way closer to perihelion, its closest point to the sun.
There have been incorrect speculations on the Internet that alignments of comet Elenin with other celestial bodies could cause consequences for Earth and external forces could cause comet Elenin to come closer. "Any approximate alignments of comet Elenin with other celestial bodies are meaningless, and the comet will not encounter any dark bodies that could perturb its orbit, nor will it influence us in any way here on Earth," said Don Yeomans, a scientist at NASA JPL. "Comet Elenin will not only be far away, it is also on the small side for comets," said Yeomans. "And comets are not the most densely-packed objects out there. They usually have the density of something akin to loosely packed icy dirt. "So you've got a modest-sized icy dirtball that is getting no closer than 35 million kilometers [about 22 million miles)," said Yeomans. "It will have an immeasurably minuscule influence on our planet. By comparison, my subcompact automobile exerts a greater influence on the ocean's tides than comet Elenin ever will."
"We're talking about how a comet looks as it safely flies past us," said Yeomans of NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office. "Some cometary visitors arriving from beyond the planetary region – like Hale-Bopp in 1997 -- have really lit up the night sky where you can see them easily with the naked eye as they safely transit the inner-solar system. But Elenin is trending toward the other end of the spectrum. You'll probably need a good pair of binoculars, clear skies and a dark, secluded location to see it even on its brightest night."
Comet Elenin hasn't received much press precisely because it is small and faint. Several new comets are discovered each year, and you don't normally hear about them either. The truth is that Elenin has received much more attention than it deserves due to a variety of Internet postings that are untrue. The information NASA has on Elenin is readily available on the Internet.
And your hard science can tell us if and why this thing has broken in two. Not some guess that its ice (because we say it is) and sun hot so it melt
Comet Elenin (C/2010 X1), widely known for inaccurate reports of its threat to Earth, appears to be breaking apart. Observations by amateur astronomer Michael Mattiazzo of Castlemaine, Australia show a rapid dimming and elongation of the comet's nucleus akin to that of Comet LINEAR (C/1999 S4), which also disintegrated when it approached the sun in 2000. Comets are fragile objects, so this development while unexpected comes as no surprise. Readers with pertinent images of Elenin are invited to submit them here.
So I go back to my first point none know so STFU
OK tried this once before lets see what happens this time. Please remember this is what I was told by some people in the know. Not me saying I know this because of a dream some candle smoke or anything else. The people that told me said about 10 other things first each of which came true. Thats why I am writing this I think people should know and you can all make your owe minds up. After each thing they said came true i think its only right I stepped up. I do find it funny that people can't see that 3WW has started. This time its the US playing the part of Germany. The people in the country not knowing whats being done in their name. China playing the US in the 2WW a country getting on its feet with great man power but no real weapons as of yet. But lets stop this thats just the back drop. Anyone that follows stocks will tell you that the new TEC IPO's are going up 50%-100% on the first day from RenRen to linkedin. With over 230 tec IPO coming out over the world before the end of July thats going to make a big Tec Bubble. People are already talking about it. Problem is anyone will half a brain knows this and its going to go under. I was told in Oct of this year.
