1883, Near miss?
#1
For those who believe that comets are not irrelevant:

Could a gigantic comet have missed Earth by only a few hundred km in 1883? S6

Incidentally, this comet is most likely the same one that caused the great Chicago fire of 1871. Its known as Biela's Comet, and had broken into several pieces, which has raised the question as to just what may have been the cause of the electronic flashing between the pieces.

It has given rise to the "Electric Comet" theory, and also coupled with the "Electronic Universe" belief that may explain some other aspects about our sun and how it acts strangely at times. I need to read up more on this theory, because there is also some strange issues with the makeup of comets too.

I've forgotten the space probe that was sent to impact a comet and then record the composition of the debris that was shed from the impact. The common definition of a comet is a 'big ice ball'. But this impact actually produced much less water than anticipated, meaning that that particular comet was more rock than ice.

Actually the implications could be important in some ways. But again, I need to 'bone' up on the subject more.

Hmm... I really don't like encouraging the comet addicts around S6, but Here is some more.

What's this 'Comet Addicts' crap all about? You're not trying to insult me now are you?

Yes, the comets/asteroids/aliens did it: one of them brought life to earth. Don't need no God. It gets tiresome. We all know comets/asteroids/aliens are responsible for mass extinctions. So why would they have brought life to earth only to extinct it? They should make up their mind. I'll bet the sci fi novelists have the explanation.
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.
