Cloudy With A Chance Of Satellite.

I’m sure you’ve all heard that today a satellite the size of a double-decker bus will be hurtling towards the Earth.

And if your News programmes are anything like mine they’re glossing over this little tid-bit. The newsreader actually said ‘but there’s only a one in 3,000 chance that it would hit someone.’ 

……..

Excuse me, did you really just say ONLY? But isn’t there like almost seven billion people living on Earth? I’ve always been pathetically feeble at maths but even I can tell that seven billion is a massive number and that as a result one in 3,000 is pretty high odds.

I mean of course there may have been concern about causing mass hysteria amongst the public so the media have gone for a blase (yeah the ‘e’ is supposed to have an accent above it but I don’t know how to do that) attitude, but there’s really no shrugging off a statistic like that.

So my advice to you, if you were to look up and see a sizable chunk of debris falling towards you, hop on an actual double-decker bus and get the hell out of there. No doubt the media would try to label it as an unfortunate and very unlikely accident that happened against all the odds.

    What are the odds that the satellite hits that specific newsreader?

      Probably quite low. But you never know, karma might cause a little chunk to fly off, as it continues to fall maybe it’ll tumble through trees to slow its momentum and as he’s walking through a park he could get a good and undamaging ‘thunk’ on the head… and maybe it’ll knock some sense into him…
