    CNN: Gov’t Shutdown Risks an Undetected Asteroid Strike

    Now that the government is shutdown, Planet Earth risks ... an undetected asteroid strike!

    That's the warning coming from CNN, anyway.

    Reporter Tom Foreman on Friday hyped the threat posed by the government shutdown, citing a pause in some senior nutrition programs, a loss of scientific research, and NASA's asteroid monitoring system. Worse, an asteroid is coming February 4th, he said.

    "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would back down its flu tracking program even as the nation faces the worst outbreak in years," Foreman said. "Some senior nutrition programs would be paused. 200,000 passport applications went unprocessed in 1995. Congress funds much of the scientific research done in this country. In 2013, that meant some experiments went on hold in 2013 and suffered costly losses of data."

    "In space same year, for more than two weeks, NASA reportedly stopped monitoring potentially dangerous asteroids," he added. "A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4th."

    Sorry. I'm not buying the asteroid strike theory.

    Now a black hole hitting us and taking people out at random is much more of a concern! Just ask Don Lemon!

    CNN Asks if Black Hole Explains Missing Jet

    CNN posed the question whether a black hole could explain why Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went missing.

    CNN anchor Don Lemon read a tweet to his guests Wednesday by a viewer who asked if the airplane could have been swallowed up by a black hole or the Bermuda Triangle. Other viewers likened the disappearance to the TV shows "Lost" and "The Twilight Zone," Mediaite reported.


    "I know it's preposterous, but is it preposterous?" Lemon asked, directing the question to Mary Schiavo, former inspector general for the U.S. Transportation Department, for a comment on the theories.

    "A small black hole would suck in our entire universe, so we know it's not that, the Bermuda Triangle is often weather and 'Lost' is a TV show," Shiavo said.
