Maybe if the stupid asses who call themselves engineers can get off their pony ride and erotic-obsessive love affair with G.I. Joe and Ironman suits for a while, they will be able to devise a way to blast that asteroid to Hell a few hundred times over by then.

Someone at that website made a comment with a link to what apears to be the REAL story: Asteroid 2007 VK184 Eliminated as Impact Risk to Earth - NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

That is essentially the same way I calculate dates. For instance, 100 days from April 4 is May 74 (since April has 30 days); May 74 equal June 43 (since May has 31 days); and June 43 equals July 13 (since June has 30 days).

An even better idea, in my opinion, would be to nudge it off course, so that large fragments of the asteroid do not fall to Earth, thereby creating various calamaties.

Probably no one's taxes would need to be raised in order to send a rocket into space, to nudge an asteroid off course. (We managed to use NASA for the purpose of launching rockets in previous decades, without the need to raise taxes in order to do so.)

In any case, it is rather silly to suppose that one may do a meaningful cost-benefit analysis as concerning the survival of the entire planet...

Life threats have never swayed a single earthly Plutonian from his love for money.

That's more like it. A plutonian would have his mother killed if it meant money in his pocket. He won't allow the extinction of life on Earth to get in his way.
