Around here, when I read a news report that strains the levels of credibility and makes me want to pull my hair out because of the level of human culpability, I rather routinely snarl, “Freaking asteroid landing lights…they are on AGAIN.” This relates of course,to the idiocy commonly aired daily by the religious sorts who believe their Cop God is ultimately going to “sort us all out”.
I’d say that Cop God is a wee bit overbooked on sorting, but that could be my inner Snarky Bitch talking. Because yeah, I’d be tempted to set out landing lights my-own-damned-self if I thought it would work. We might BE a better planet if we bipedal asshats were no longer the species running the show
into the ground.
But the truth of it is, nobody is playing nine-pins with the planet and asteroids, no matter how provocative human misbehavior. So, I guess we don’t have to view a fly-by next week as a warning shot over the bow. But hey….if anyone out there behaving asshattish WANTS to take it that way and clean up their act? I won’t complain!
