Earth just had a 'close shave' with a 180ft asteroid - and no one saw it coming

Just a quick post, I will update later after I get my day going.   Keep in mind, this happened last
weekend, and we are hearing about it on Thursday. 

Those $cientists must be embarrassed and were trying to cover up, but an insider was going to blow the whistle, so they released the information.

Some close calls are enough to keep you awake at night, especially if they concern huge chunks of flaming rock smashing into the planet.
Astronomers marked one such close shave at the weekend after an asteroid larger than a Blue Whale whizzed between the Earth and the moon – a hair’s breadth in astronomical terms.
Brazilian sky watchers had only just discovered the asteroid, called 2016 QA2, the day before it zoomed by within 50,000 miles (80,000 km) of Earth.
 stock here, but don't worry folks....in true politically correct minimization rhetoric, no need to worry, because the officials assure us.....seriously, from the article

 An object the size of 2016 QA2 – as named by the Minor Planet Center – would certainly do significant damage at the local scale, it wouldn’t be enough to wipe out civilization.

One comment....
This cheered me up. Reality is they might not see it coming and with only 24 hours notice wont have time to save all the politicians and bankers so humanity should have a chance to restart without being handicapped with a large pool of weasels
