Asteroid 2020: I’m Voting for the Asteroid

If an asteroid is coming, then I would prefer absolute planetary destruction to Kamala Harris or even Donald Trump.

That’s why I’m voting Asteroid 2020.


Well, 2020 keeps getting better all the time.

Amid a pandemic, civil unrest and a divisive US election season, we now have an asteroid zooming toward us.

On the day before the presidential vote, no less.

Yep. The celestial object known as 2018VP1 is projected to come close to Earth on November 2, according to the Center for Near Earth Objects Studies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Its diameter is 0.002 km, or about 6.5 feet, according to NASA’s data. It was first identified at Palomar Observatory in California in 2018.

NASA says there are three potential impacts, but “based on 21 observations spanning 12.968 days,” the agency has determined the asteroid probably — phew! — won’t have a deep impact, let alone bring Armageddon.

The chance of it hitting us is just 0.41%, data show.

0.41% are odds I’m willing to bet on, given that this is the candidate I support.

Life-Annihilating Asteroid is a candidate who shares my values: wiping out virtually all life on earth.

That’s why I’m voting Asteroid 2020.
