To avert a new apocalypse – this time set for February 2013 – scientists suggest confronting asteroid 2012 DA14 with either paint, or big guns.

Weird that you just posted that just now, I just saw on youtube, a leaked presidential speech about an asteroid that hasn't hit yet, but was preparing like it just happened. Hmm, weird. Don't know how much validity to put into it. Could be made up. Who knows.

The field you are referring to is the Earth's magnetic field and it is extremely weak. Here at the Earth's surface it is much stronger and barely turns a compass needle. In space it would have no detectable affect on a large object especially one that is unlikely to be affected by magnetic fields.
The earths magnetic field, is far from weak, and the fact that our "untuned" needles can be moved by it is in fact a teller that it is quite strong.
In fact, it is so strong, that every electric thing you have going ... is in fact, the work of the earths magnetic field. You are inside a magnet, everything that uses electricity inside this magnet ... has it's origin from the magnet itself.
The Universe itself is an electromagnetic universe.
Why are you saying this is a hoax and why are you getting so angry at the op? this seems real enought to me and this cosmic intruder "could" hit us in early 2013 > theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com... Or am i missing something?

I'm mobile, so it doesn't show what forum this is in. But it should be in the hoax forum if it is not. And you should be banned or warned for knowingly posting a hoax.
How someone could have the brains to use the Internet, and not the brains to understand why and how this thread is a complete joke is criminal.
Op, seriously? Mods, seriously?
