Can Ben Affleck save us from ‘Armageddon’?

I just had to post this one, it’s really funny! God I hated Armageddon so much, and that other one, what was it called, Deep Impact, that was terrible too. Stop throwing cheese at us and expecting us to swallow it!!!

But anyways, what if it came to fruition and an asteroid was going to hit us. We’re f**ked, basically. Unless…

U.S. House of Representatives Passes Bill to Protect Us All From Asteroids

Gizmodo writes: Don’t worry, folks: Our trusted representatives in government just saw the movie Armageddon, and they aren’t going to take the threat posed by this mediocre 1998 action movie lying down. They’re going to pass laws to make sure we’re prepared to face any asteroid-related threat without having to send a bunch of oil drillers into space.

The House of Representatives just passed bill H.R. 6063, directing NASA to come up with plans for a cheap mission to send a craft to the Apophis asteroid to attach a tracking device. Apophis is on route to come closer

In addition to paying close attention to Apophis, the bill requires the Director of the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy to come up with a policy for notifying Federal agencies and other emergency response groups of an impending near-Earth object threat. Hopefully they’ll come up with better plans than whatever it is they have enacted for natural disasters now, because their track record doesn’t really inspire confidence

    ARMAGEDDON and DEEP IMPACT are both the subject of our anniversary smack-off at MOVIE SMACKDOWN! There’s a poll, too, if you want to express yourself.
