of course it was an asteroid, adam and eve weren’t killing all the dinosaurs themselves

okay guys, new plan.  when the asteroid comes back to wipe us all out, let’s round up a few guys who have fallen on hard times and have gambling problems to fly into space and plant a bomb on the asteroid. stop me if you have heard this one before.  

Currently, the main suspect behind this catastrophe is a cosmic impact from an asteroid or comet, an idea first proposed by physicist Luis Alvarez and his son geologist Walter Alvarez. Scientists later found that signs of this collision seemed evident near the town of Chicxulub (CHEEK-sheh-loob) in Mexico in the form of a gargantuan crater more than 110 miles (180 kilometers) wide.

The explosion, likely caused by an object about 6 miles (10 km) across, would have released as much energy as 100 trillion tons of TNT, more than a billion times more than the atom bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

  1. Sounds to me like someone tried to take out Mexico and things just went a little awry. Maybe politics killed everyone the first time, too.

  2. Or Adam, duhhhh ; )
