Great...Just great.


But..This is fake, right?
And if it isn't, they still said it was just a theory.

Kinda.
Uh.
Anyway!


"The good news is that this finding confirms several cutting- edge ideas in theoretical physics," announced Dr. Albert Sherwinski, a Cambridge based astrophysicist with close ties to NASA.

"The bad news is that the total annihilation of our solar system is imminent."


Heh.

I just pretend we're all fine and hope for the best.

But yeah, that's some scary crap right there.

2014...

Wasn't that supposed to be the apocalypse? Creepy... Anyway, it's not really certain what that thing does, so we're safe for now.

Actually, it was 2012.

But anyways, after reading around about this, i'm pretty sure it's fake.

Clicky. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weekly_World_News)

Im going to call myself a scientist...
Than Im going to see a dust cloud, and theorize it to be moving as fast as light and shoot lazers from a single eye ball in the center of it, and Im going to tell IG-64 that its aiming at him and it hates him... because it told me, through my super duster translatorscope... and it will kill him june 14th 2034 at 9:16 PEE EM!

Planet eating dust clouds are cool. We need more of them so that we can send them to trample our enemies!

Yah, I read that some regular forum guy broke it down on some other site, the X-Ray telescope they "used" to "discover it" wouldn't be able to see cosmic dust or any asteroids. If it where at almost lightspeed, they wouldn't be able to see it destroying any asteroid.... with an X-Ray telescope.

The scientist doesn't exist, his background is incredibly vague, too. And if they wanted to keep it from the public, why did they report it on Yahoo news? And why is it in the Entertainment section, some kinda movie thing going on?

Then it is clear, the above quote explains why this is in the entertainment section!
Yay! I'll get to see Black And White 8!(Assuming they make it that far.)

Kain

I thought that 2012 theory was just a huge threat to the planet in which time the remaining Crystal Skulls will arise and give man the knowledge he needs to stop it..?

Edit: luke, check your math. Its more like 6.33

So basicly, the concusion is that a giant space cloud wont kill us, but a large group of skulls will.... ???

Even if it is real 10 million miles in space ain't that big at all, had they said 10 million AUs(Astronomical Units) then I'd be scared.


((An Astronomical Unit is the distance from the earth to the sun...if you didn't know already))

I think you're confusing humorous with not-humorous again. It's a common rookie mistake.

All right...
Instead of humorous it's...eh...Pathetically...Fun.
Or..
No!
What's the right word for that kind of article which appears to be complete BS, such as two aliens from some planet which i don't remember the name of claims Michael Jackson their son?
