Out of space…

There wasn’t much feedback on yesterday’s ‘blog – although I’m advised that this was because few people read the ‘blog as it was far too cold and there had been a bit of rain earlier in the day.

It is worth noting that I finished drafting yesterday’s ‘blog whilst I was in the pub and accidentally uploaded the ‘blog to another WordPress website (I think, but I’m entirely sure) and I then had to re-post it to WasteOfWebSpace, I always knew that alcohol would be my downfall…

The ‘other’ ‘blog received 2 ‘likes’ as where the exact same words on the WOWS ‘blog didn’t get a single ‘like’, which just goes to prove that the ‘likes’ system can never be a true judge of quality. Consequently, I can confirm that some of my ‘blogs that receive no ‘likes’ are of outstanding quality and the above explanation is scientific proof.

Talking about science (not the former Big Brother housemate), it’s time to crack on with today’s topic, which is to do with socks… I’m only joking, it’s to do with science (sort of).

Predominantly it’s to do with space and the usual objects that fly through the air. This week, an asteroid ‘narrowly missed’ the earth by around 17,200 miles – which is a long way. As it flew past the earth, it narrowly missed a stray shot at goal by footballer Emile Heskey.

The asteroid was said to be the size of an Olympic swimming pool, although Team GB probably had more success swimming on the asteroid than they did in the swimming pool and it’s a real shame that the swimming pool used to film Tom Daley’s reality show Splash couldn’t have been located 17,000 miles away from earth.

That’s not the only incident involving pieces of space rock heading towards the earth in the past few days, yesterday a meteor crashed into earth in the Ural mountains in Russia. This caused a lot of havoc, although the fans of meteors were said to be delighted at a meteor hitting the earth – in case you were unaware, the fans of meteors are called the meteorites…

The damage has been said to be quite severe as a large lump of rock landed either in or on a frozen lake (presumably it landed on the lake briefly and then sank to the bottom of the lake faster than Kevin Webster’s reputation). Scientists also reported that the meteor released several kilotrons of energy, which was the equivalent an to atomic bomb – although what would Russia know about atomic bombs??? In any event, it injured more Russians than Vladimir Putin at election time.

That’s about it for today’s ‘blog as I can’t really think of any more varieties of space rocks… I was going to mention comets… but they no longer exist after they went into administration last year…
