Apparently, SMOD missed us, and indeed, had missed us before I hit post.
Now, I’m not going to delete the post or expect an apology or anything, but…
I would like to say that things were said, threats were made, some of us freaked out but I don’t think it would be profitable to worry about who called who an asshole and we should just put this unfortunate incident behind us.
It’s just the war and that bastard Obama and…
I think it would be best if we let the past be the past, let he who has never said he was going to kill you all cast the first stone.
Back to the post.
So Valentine’s Day is over at last and we’re to a happy day, SMOD Day.
Now, the ‘scientists’ have said it will miss us, but it’s coming closer than the Moon, so I’m not so sure.
Personally, I blame Global Warmmongering for the misinformation. As we all know, if you set out to prove WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!, you need to blame global worming.
We saw CNN float the idea that global worming caused SMOD, but even global warmmongers laughed at that, hell, I bet even Shep Smith thought that was ridiculous! (at least, after the producer in his ear told him to)
So now we’re supposed to listen to some scientist at NASA? These people work for James Hansen recall, so if it’s not global worming related, it can’t possibly KILL US ALL!!!!!
So I decided to look into it.
The first step in figuring out any dynamic situation is to draw a force diagram, but I skipped that and just drew this. I think it’s to scale.
So we see the velocity vector of SMOD and acceleration vectors due to gravity of the Earth and the Moon. The Moon’s is, as you can see, 1/6 of Earth’s.
So as it comes between the Earth and the Moon, the Moon will effectively be directly behind it (the Moon is moving), so the Moon’s gravity will act as a brake.
It will look like this
Smod’s vector (no acceleration) Moon’s gravity (all acceleration)
So SMOD will slow down, this will give the Earth’s gravity a longer time to act on SMOD. Further, the Moon’s gravity will keep on slowing SMOD down for the long hours as it travels along its path to ‘miss’ the Earth. While there’s probably some inverse square stuff going on so it decreases rapidly, a small force acting for a long time can work wonders, just look at the Grand
So what will happen is that as SMOD enters Earth’s gravity well its path will curve down and start the same Roadrunner Slingshot Maneuver from Armageddon (The Road Runner did it more realistically) except with no acceleration to allow it break free from the gravity well.
I plugged the numbers into my Fisher-Price Orbital Dynamics Calculator (SMOD goes Booooom!) and this is what popped up.
As you can see, it will circle the Earth part of one orbit and then splash down. Since it will be coming in at such a low angle, it will be a grazing shot, so it hits and bounces a few times.
As nearly as I can tell the first hit will be western Europe, then a bounce over the Atlantic and down along the eastern seaboard, the next bounce will be much shorter but I figure it’ll graze the Rockies somewhere in northern Colorado or maybe Wyoming and sort of skip to California just northwest of San Francisco, then finally down in the Pacific Ocean directly south of the Korean peninsula, it’ll be coming in almost horizontally so the tidal wave will be huge and could go west to Tibet.
Since that appears to be fact, I have some things I’d like to say.
First, to Doubleplusundead. Look at you, you think you’re so fucking cool. “Ooh, I have a blog, it’s named after me.” B Fucking D
Who gives a shit? And what the fuck is a “doubleplusundead” anyway? “I’m Sinistar, that name is too cool a name for me so I need to change it to some trendy, hipster, zombie word play thing”
To Lemur King. I meant Every. Single. Fucking. Word. You think you’re so cool with your optics and your family and your wife and getting laid and shit. Well blow me. I don’t give a shit.
I’ll tell you what, you make your best lenses, you figure out the correct focal point and you make a telescope so powerful you can count the sands on the moons of Pluto, then you train that telescope on my ass and you’ll see what I think of you. Suck farts. Dick.
As for ATC, AliceH and the rest of the ‘women’ around here, I’m not even going to waste my breath on you.
As for the “readers”, you suck.
None of you assholes read the damn posts, click the links or comment. Jeebus, if we didn’t include tits nobody would even notice a new fucking post.
I’ve written long and thoughtful posts on nuclear weapons, world war, the war on terror, the horrible doings of the Middle East, the erosion of our freedoms and what the fuck are my most read posts? My post on the hottest Maid Marion and the newest big hit is the one with titties and beer in the headline. Fuck.
I had to go look at those posts, man those are fucking hot.
Where was I? Oh yeah, you guys suck.
I mean really, you refuse to read or click or anything but look at tits. Hell, none of you can even be bothered to click the fucking ‘like’ button. Son of a bitch.
Well, you won’t have me to ignore anymore. It’s all over and I have one more thing to say.
None of you assholes better come within a half mile of me (a mile and a half if I get that .50BMG).
My last hottasery, I mentioned tits after all.
A question, is that a better “Do dirty things to me, I dare you” look than Mila’s?
These are the questions that keep me up at night.
