"Better Than Expectations" - Asteroid To Miss Earth

Tyler Durden's picture


Surely, some algo, somewhere will ramp the futures by at least 1-2 points on this headline. In other news, anyone sufficiently brain dead after today's market action is welcome to watch the following soothing live clip of the asteroid's passage, which confirms that Bruce Willis' asteroid busting services will not be needed.

Oh Fuck - I thought it would hit Wall Street.

Now we have to do it ourselves.

It may have atomic gold on it. A near impact will potentially involve some of those gold ions entering the atmosphere. Hence the afternoon dip as this new supply was priced in with the appropriate leverage.

I wonder if this is what Hugh Hendry met by needing a meteor to hit the earth to get the kind of deflationary event that could push gold prices higher. Does this count as a correct call?

Nothing like an Extinction Level Event for your portfolio!

***Breaking News***



Asteroid narrowly misses planet earth. The Bernank, however, squarely hits uranus. And uranus. And uranus. And so forth.

Trichet to accounce he will implement The Bernank uranus plan for citizens of the EU as soon as he's given the green light.

Now that I've got your attention,

I'd like to point out a few things.

A) Comet Elenin. It had a 6000 to 15000 year orbit that was vertical to all other known comets. The sun shot a coronal mass ejection at it that tore it to dust. I've got a funny feeling if you track back it's plane you'll find our solar system colliding with another, so more stuff to come into our system from this plane, go  to the end of this plane and you'll probably find our Binary companion to the Sun.

B) Solar flares have been going crazy. Sunspot 1339 which is new, is massive. The Sun is acting up and we REALLY understand how it works less than 1%. It is still a great mystery.

C) All the outer planets in our solar system have been undergoing radical changes.

Economics and Celestial Physics and Alchemy = 2012


Grab a joint, a good woman, a bottle of whiskey,

lay a blanket and spend a few hours watching the stars.

The universe is Awesome.

I think the most interesting thing I heard about ELE was that it was only the first to come (said a former NASA scientist).  He said, "ELE is a time capsle, and whatever follows is what the capsle was suppossed to tell us about."I don't know much about space, but I do know that the heavens have been very active lately.  The earth too, for that matter.  I am not sure, but something seems to be afoot.

I think you're thinking of another asteroid. according to wikipedia the next approach in 2029 is by Venus- unless your writing to us from Venus in which case, what are the winters like there?:

On 19 January 19 2029, 2005 YU55 will pass about 0.0023 AU (340,000 km; 210,000 mi) from Venus.[13] The close approach to Venus in 2029 will determine how close the asteroid will pass the Earth in 2041.[5] The uncertainties in the post-2029 trajectory will cause the asteroid to pass somewhere between 0.002 AU (300,000 km; 190,000 mi) and 0.3 AU from the Earth in 2041.[5] Radar astrometry in November 2011 should clarify the Earth encounter situation in 2041 and beyond.[5] As of 7 November 2011 (2011 -11-07)[update], the nominal solution shows 2005 YU55 passing 0.1 AU (15,000,000 km; 9,300,000 mi) from the Earth on 12 November 2041.

How much will the Earths gravity effect it and will it make another pass?

1) The force of gravity is the product of the mass of the Earth, the mass of the asteroid, and the universal gravitational constant, all divided by the square of the distance between them.

2) Yes, if it thinks that the Earth was flirting with it.

Now that's truly something to cheer about.

Plus the price of dog food is coming down.  So I'll be able to feed my family.

This thing was a bigger scam than Haley's Comet.  Stupid disk jockeys this morning pumped it up as "a real sky show", I saw something that I thought was "IT", no, it was just a jumbo jet flying towards Montreal....

A stoned Martian is riding tyhe asteroid. It hits earth and he stumbles off and says to the first human he meets (cue martian voice) :"take me to your dealer"

That asteroid represents a vast pile of nickel-iron that we're missing out on.  Go long on metal futures.

John Kerry would support Mitt Romney against the communist Buffet rule that Obama wants to put in place.

Do not test the 1% who pay 14% effective income tax, yet are scared shitless of 9.9.9 cause that means no donations to "charities"

Hope for change in the AIPAC vertical silo. Obummer is going to lock horns and deport the wrecking crew once and for all.

I'm all in for 'Obummer'. I think I'm going to start trading an account for him. All proceeds going directly to his reelection.
