    There's little doubt that Fallout 4's gameplay is involving when you can spend dozens of hours on the main storyline alone. However, one Russian man is convinced that it's too involving. RT says that he's suing Bethesda for 500,000 rubles ($7,030) for failing to warn that Fallout 4 would "become so addictive."

    this is why i wake up or go to bed not the least bit concerned if the world burned... or the fact that there is an impending Asteroid collision coming named apophis in the not too distant future that almost no one seems to give a fuck about.

    And i can't even comprehend why people even like this franchise, Gave fallout 3 a good 40~ hours trying to get into it, was bored to tears the entire time.

    Last I heard it was gonna be a near-miss, but so close it would have noticeable affect on the world.

    It's a near miss the first round and then i think it's 14 years later it's a hit... they even have a expected location of where it'll hit.... either way.... ELE...

    Even if it's proposed trajectory shifts a smidge and it's a graze of doesn't hit us at all.. considering the time frame.... this should have remained on the front page of every news paper until it's sorted.... There should be updates on various solutions being implemented... it's not even the back of people heads... there are basically 0 people that are aware and even more that care. Worse yet is they don't believe it to be possible.... which is insane... but then again the few i've discussed it with that don't believe it... say it's because "god wouldn't let that happen".

    Taken from W
    So any chance it could hit has been proven since 2006 it is just not there. Yet you are scared ok

    Scared no... Concerned... yes.... this is one among billions of objects... of which we can only track a fraction of ... and very small one at that... We weren't able to predict/track the countless numbers that have done damage nearly killing people in the last decade... and it's size doesn't make it any harder or easier.

    There are quite a few high profile astrophysicist and numerous others in the scientific field that clearly illustrate how this should be more of a concern... not in terms of ELE situations... but in terms of any and all things that can be brought about due to a venture to solving and having solutions in place before a guarantee imminent situation occurs. The technology created to make these solutions viable have ground breaking world wide effects... no differently than those we're using today due to nasa and all affiliated.

    Why worry about it? There's nothing we can do about it anyway. Not being a fatalist, just a realist.

    There's plenty we can do..... countless potential solutions..... it's sad that a vast majority of people would prefer to dig a hole or party for the end of the world.... while a fraction... are actually trying to formulate real solutions in which the prevention of an impact can be done... remember we don't have to do much and to push an asteroid out of the path of hitting us with enough years to get it to land on the surface and let say fire off a rocket that'll push it off it's trajectory... not out of the real realm of possibility.

    I think a mere explosion won't account to much for the massive energy involved with a meteorite hurtling through space..

    using a explosion is the most common brute force solution that has the highest probability of failure...... either A: it has zero effect on the astroide due to the lack of data to properly determine what it's composed of and how it is... basically like someone trying to piss into the wind..... or B: creates numerous large projectiles which could likely be just as if not worse than a single large mass... add to this, trying to redirect more than one thing now is that much more difficult.

    The rocket i suggested is one that actually being developed..... it lands on the surface in the most ideal spot.. and does it's best to attach itself... then fires rockets to push it off it's trajectory as a slow sustained burn. If you do this soon enough.. the effects of it's movement by even just a few inches, can end up being just enough to push it millions of miles after several years since that initial push. For example 2029 they do the nudge... .then by 2036.... it could be nowhere near us at all....

    The alternative option is to build a unit that'll match it's speed and ride alongside it... the gravitational forces will provide enough of a draw over time to move it the smidge it needs.

    You keep worrying about a specific threat that is not a threat.
    Might as well prepare yourself for the invasion of the lizard people.

    Funnily enough my thesis (my first degree) was about extraterrestrial threats.

    again you don't seem to understand the difference between worry and concern.

    However they cannot keep tabs on all possible collision threats. Hell, they probably only know single digit percentage of possible threats. The biggest chance is that we will notice one on collision course when it's too close to do anything about it.
    Second; first you say
    and in your next post you mention two and both of these solutions are still being developed. Which means that we have NO solutions.
