Damn, a strike would have meant stimulus! Krugman will have to pray for an Alien invasion.

Good news: Asteroid to miss Earth

Bad news: Asteroid to collide with Moon and knock the Moon into the Earth

Oh Fuck - I thought it would hit Wall Street.

Now we have to do it ourselves.

Oh wait - it's 2012 - i.e. God-On next year!

Wonder what punitive mayhem He has up His sleeve for His monetary "servants"...

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.

What 'radical' changes? ... and over what time period?

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.

This is bad news, imagine the rebuild and epic-keynesianism that an asteroid strike could start.

+We should launch Jamie Dimon, Blankfein, Moynihan and all the other white collar crooks on a one way trip to this asteroid then nuke it.

We will never know how many close encounters dinosaurs had with astroids before THE ONE slammed into the earth...

Although the theory that dino extinction was caused by an astroid strike is not believed by all scientists... Big Hit Day couldn't have been a good day for the dinos.

Worse than Ben getting before a camera tomorrow and saying "Uh... Ya know that gold that used to belong to the US...? Uh... We can't find it..."

No that's bearish.  Asteroid to hit moon, crash moon into the earth, earth orbit to destabilize and drift toward the sun.  That's bullish.  Worth at least 200 points on the S&P

Crash moon into earth? I thought it was 'gold to the moon', not the other way around.
