Well, THAT’S a Relief

NASA has announced that the world is NOT going to end in September. The odds are the Earth will NOT be hit in September by an asteroid that will wipe out life on the planet.


Apparently there have been rumors and panicky pseudo-scientific rumors whizzing around the Internet that some giant space rock was going to slam into Puerto Rico between Sept. 18 and 25. The babble got bad enough that the space agency felt called on to say, “Nope. Odds of such an even occurring in the next 100 years are 0.01 percent.

Because that would be just my luck, wouldn’t it? Look at the date on that prediction. Sept. 18? And the official release date of “Chrissie Warren: Pirate Hunter” is Sept. 19? Yeah, just my luck.
