    Asteroid To Flyby Earth On March 5 At An Unnervingly Close Distance


    It will pass so close to Earth, it should be visible with the naked eye.

    Pretty cool, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one not 'unnerved'. I might be the only one bored with all of these flyby events being billed as scary and unsettling and unnerving though.

    Unless it flies by close enough to effect the earth's orbit or rotation and knock me off my feet, I won't be unnerved.

    I'd like to know why he hasn't been banned yet.

    ^^ I've heard whispers and rumors that the anti-gay political operatives have at one point or another made a sufficiently credible threat of legal action that the owners dare not ban for anything that doesn't pass some minimal threshhold of assault or fraud.

    I think the more likely explanation is that on RJ the trolls and the would-be contributing members exhibit such nearly-identical patterns of behavior that it would take a team of experienced forensic psychologists to separate the robbakers from [name your favorite opinionated RJ member]s. Throw in all the regular sock accounts and even those psychologists would probably end up having to be committed themselves after a few days' work.
