885′ 2000EM26 Asteroid Will Streak Past Earth Tomorrow, February 17, 2014, 2.1 Million Miles Away — Travelling At 27,000 mph.

Nothing to worry.
It will NOT hit us. Promise!
2.1 million miles, in astronomical terms, is ‘close’
but it still doesn’t even warrant a fag
let alone a Cuban.
2.1 million miles is 8.8 times the
distance between the Earth and Moon,
the so called ‘Lunar Distance’.
So it is 8.8 times further out than the Moon.
Here is the JPL orbital plot.
Note how the asteroid has fairly compact
orbital path around the Sun.
Here is a decent article from ‘Space.com’.
All This Snow In ‘Boston’ — God Wants ‘Gillette’ O’Malley To Finally Shave Off That Ragged Non-Catholic Beard.

Any and all familiar with my posts on ‘Popes and Papacy’ know that I have railed against this beard ever since he was made a Cardinal.
This, however, is NOT just another of my many personal foibles. Catholic prelates are NOT supposed to have beards! I didn’t make that up. There are papal edicts going back centuries urging clerics to shave.
Here is the most definitive work on this matter, from the ‘1919 Catholic Encyclopedia‘.
All this snow that Boston is getting must mean that God is angry. In olden days this might have even warranted a human sacrifice to appease God. But, I think it is much simpler right now.
‘Gillette’ needs to shave off that raggedy ol’ beard. Simple as that. He will look so much better. He will be 70 in June. With that beard he looks like he is 90.
Yes, yes, yes, I know all the stuff Capuchins and I have heard all the Capuchin monkey jokes.
You don’t see ‘recent’ popes with beards. The Catholics are SPECIAL to God. Can you even name the head of any other religion. Do any of them rule over anything even close to the Vatican? God has a special covenant with the Catholics. Of that I am sure — though I am, of course, no Catholic. This is why ‘Gillette’ really needs to toe the line. Plus Boston is the home of Gillette.
Just look at this storm. ‘Gillette’ PLEASE shave and I will then put you down as a papabile for 2016 (against Hillary).
The 6 Ultra-Special, Asteroid (Actually Chelyabinsk Meteor) Imbued Olympic Medals At The Sochi Winter Olympics 2014.

This is so cool!
Hard to believe that there hasn’t been more media coverage of it.
Not sure I totally agree with the ethics of it …
i.e., just making 6 special medals,
on the assumption, or hope, that a Russian wins one on the
one year anniversary.
But, that is Russia.
Yes, I know other countries have done special medals too …
but doubt if any were as cool (or possibly rare) as these six.
I wrote about it, twice, last year … in my ISON books.
This is from the BIG, black ISON book — which is still selling as it should!
If you can’t remember here is a video from Wikipedia …
which has a pretty good coverage of the event.
