For fun, the rest of the week, each day I will ask you to decide between 2 killer risks.....which one is more likely to end your life:
Are you more likely to be killed by:
1. An Asteroid?
2. By a hailstorm?
For extra credit, guess what the odds are of each of those happening. Hint, its less than 1 in 100 and greater than 1 in 1,000,000,000,000 which is 1 in a trillion.
I can't resist....
An asteroid could have devastating effects. Didn't one kill the dinosaurs? But I've seen a lot more hail storms than catastrophic, or even fairly minor asteroid strikes. So, even if the chances are slim, a hail storm has to be the bigger risk.
I've got a question …
What are the odds of a lib ( carl ) and a con ( Tim ) agreeing on something ?
Higher than many would think :-)
"I've got a question …

Excellent question Carl!
Maybe I should ask a new question. If a 10 mile wide asteroid strikes the earth, will Carl or Tim care about their difference of opinion?
Known impact craters below
Looking at the map, provides a massive clue with regards to the answer to the original question.
If a 10 mile wide asteroid were to strike
It wouldn't be something I could like.
If I were some how able to survive,
Would I really care to be alive.
All of our every day problems would go,
And the weather would be our greatest foe.
Wonderful Poem Carl. I loved it!
Here's one from me:
Al Gore tells us lots of crazy climate things
All the while his pocket book goes ka-ching
If his exaggerations don't work the 1st and 2nd time
He makes them even bigger until they get sublime
His most recent one involves hail hitting you on the head
The size of small asteroids that will strike you dead
... if I am reading this correctly.... an asteroid strike
... dead is dead
P.S. we have poets here ... just want to make that clear... now putting a ribeye on the grill to sear... uh-oh a hail
storm is a-near... I am starting to run before I can get off my rear... have no fear I will spill no beer...
