I’ll say 50-50 it lands somewhere on Earth.

I got my Pinot Grigio.

Watching an encore presentation of Comedy Central’s Roast of Charlie Sheen tonight at 10pmET.

That’s Doomsday enough for me...

A piece just landed 30 miles from here, they said it was only the size of a walnut, but at 18,000 miles per hour look at the impact footage a traffic cam recorded (warning, turn sound down or it will startle you, not joking here).

Yes, but not just because of this tumbling satellite stuff. Sometimes, you’re mowing the lawn, and you go over a rock, and the blade hits the rock and throws it against a tree and it bounces off and hits you in the head. They say this can cause mental problems....like losing your focus......what was I talking about?......the leaves are lovely this time of year.

Because of gravity and the size of the target, I say it will hit Michael Moore.

I think Hillary, Pelosi and Helen Thomas should get on their brooms and snag this thing while it’s still in one piece. Then bring it down to Earth, landing in Vegas where they can drag it over to Pawn Stars and sell it.

Maybe terrorists secretly loaded it up with 1,000 nuclear warheads before it fell from orbit?!?!?!?!?!

And, wouldn’t you know; breaking news: the space junk has been delayed.

I think we can just send a rocket up there with Helen Thomases picture on it to scare it away.

Charleston, WV at 8:55PM EDT. It will crush a Chevy pickup.

That's about the closest the orbit comes to me in the next day and it looks like the clouds are finally clearing. I'll be watching the southeastern sky.

The FR betting pool has these locations in the running.

The White Hut
Mecca
Either of Al Gore’s homes
UN buildings (NYC or Geneva)
Michael Moore’s place
The residence of the guy who called Bristol Palin’s Mom a whore

Any others?

McDowell said the satellite's delayed demise demonstrates how unreliable predictions can be. That said, "the best guess is that it will still splash in the ocean, just because there's more ocean out there."

More ocean than land, hmm. Who knew? Check out the big brain on the Harvard-Smithsonian astrophysics guy. < rolls eyes >

“The Aerospace Corp., which tracks space debris, estimates the strike will happen sometime between about 6 p.m. and 4 a.m. EDT, which would make a huge difference in where the debris might wind up. Those late-night, early morning passes show the satellite flying over parts of the United States.”

Oops. WV is safe. I hadn't downloaded the latest orbital data.

The new target is Ann Arbor Michigan 9:23 PM EDT. A flaming satellite destroying "The Big House" is a Buckeye dream.

I told my buddy it would hit the former fuel cell area where they were produced for Gemini, Apollo and the space shuttle.

Don't venture into South Windsor Connecticut.

Actually, I think he called her that, too. He did say something about riding Levi, which implies whorish behavior. I know for sure he called her a b!tch later in the tape.

Whatever. I just want a multi-ton satellite to land on his head. You know, a friendly smite from the heavens. Some people need a good smiting.
