An asteroid, designated 2004 BL86, will safely pass about three times the distance of Earth to the moon on Jan. 26. From its reflected brightness, astronomers estimate that the asteroid is about a third of a mile (0.5 kilometers) in size. At the time of its closest approach, the asteroid will be approximately 745,000 miles (1.2 million kilometers) from Earth. Get all the facts: http://go.nasa.gov/1DWaW4x

'The human race has lived on Earth for only 0.004% of the planet’s history.'

That just highlights just how arrogant our view of ourselves is and just how monumentally huge our  self importance is.

I have an issue with 9- Egypt is all very impressive, but a thousand years before that the people of Skara Brae were building massive astronomical computers, complex temple structures and living in houses with indoor plumbing and underfloor heating.
