Spy satellite loses power, may fall to Earth

   WASHINGTON – A large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and could hit the Earth in late February or March, government officials said Saturday.

   The satellite, which no longer can be controlled, could contain hazardous materials, and it is unknown where on the planet it might come down, they said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the information is classified as secret.


We’ll all be shambling around in no time…

    And I’d just like to point out t o everyone who laughed, laughed at me when I started preparing for this: WHO’S LAUGHING NOW???? THAT’S RIGHT, WHO’S LAUGHING NOW????????

    (Currently running off to the SuperWalMart for more 25 lb bags of rice and dried beans)

    Sort of like “The sky is falling, the sky is falling”. My opinion is, if an object as big as the space craft that broke up on the way down and a large part burnt in the atmosphere, then a much smaller object like this spy satellite will much less of a problem (other than the hazard fuel). That is not to say someone may not get hit on the ground, but, what the hell. With meterior showers and space juck falling it is a crap shoot. Guess bomb shelters will be coming back.

    I love yah, Dad, but you might want to Google “George Romero” (or whatever other strange name I have listed next time) before taking one of my posts like this one as serious.

    The thread is a goof. A satellite that may contain hazardous materials is going to hit the Earth in an unknown location. Radio and TV reports in the background of George Romero’s film Night of the Living Dead mention a satellite full of radioactive (i.e. “hazardous”) materials falling to Earth and starting the reanimation of the dead.

    While the news story is real, the post is a gag for all of us that love those films that you don’t spend a whole lotta time even thinking about watching.

    Oh, where did I go wrong raising my parents? They just don’t appreciate the finer things in the zombie world.

    OK, OK, I don’t keep up with the off the wall stuff. But, be that what it be. I can’t tell what is and what is not normal in your world. Sort of like the Zebra joke.

  6. jjchandler says:

    Well, if you would just put down the Clancy, pick up the Fangoria and watch a few more low rent slasher flicks and zombie films…

    Zebra joke?

  8. Dad C says:

    I only put down Clancy to pick up Cussler or Hillerman.

    So you won’t read Dr. Suess to Ian?!!!

    OK, now the military is trying to figure out how to shoot the damn thing down before it hits the atmosphere. One question: why they hell didn’t they anticipate this possibility BEFORE they sent the damn thing up there??????
