Like with the "predictions" surrounding the recent US eclipse it wont be long before some nutter claims that this

is a doomsday rock predicted in some holy book. They will post a video to youtube that will be pasted aroudneverywhere and

they will then sell you all the stuff you need to protect yourself from shelters to guns and some magical tablet that gives you

immunity to all known pathogens.

10 years is also plenty of time for any number of cults to set themselves up for a mass suicide believing that this is acutally

the incoming alien spaceship they have been expecting to carry themselves away.

I've put the date in my calendar. Hopefully when I wake up the next day I discover that the calculations were not incorrect and we are still here,

eating breakfast while watching all the crazy stuff about the dead cult members on the news.
