Yes asteroids are real, obviously. All they show you is computer generated images though. Im not interested in delusions like cults and religions thx

@HMBob

They gonna blow up a cgi asteroid with a cgi nuke. Yep, that should work great

@HMBob

No. I just hate bullshit dressed up to be real real. If they want to show us something, perhaps they could just show it. Not ‘recreate’ it for your entertainment

@Ecchiception

So what you’re saying is you hate computers and people who upload education content with CGI?

We should test this first to see if it works. Nuke the Moon!

And even if it doesn’t work, the media can just say the asteroid is a right wing plot.

It depends. Like if they pick the wrong mod or they have the wrong version of Forge it might not work.

Hydrogen bomb or conventional nuclear bomb? Matter shoves.

I’m reminded of minecraft when I was playing with cgm’s gun mod and the bazooka. A mod I added was creating lag because it was generating five new entities a second in one block. My idea was, if I blow up that spawner, the lag should disappear.

“explosions fix everything!” –Nabeshin

Yeah, didn’t work out. Instead I created a few thousand spinning blocks around the spawner and made things ten times worse. So hopefully the asteroid we nuke doesn’t have a spawner.

The Weirdness is the norm
@FireHawk

I thought they were canceled because of mean tweets on twatter? Wait no, it was that they said a female looked pretty in a dress and they got #metoo’ed. Damn it is so hard to track this stuff.

Computers exist, so Religion is not fake and asteroids are fake… delusion 100

And right wingers will just say it’s God’s plan, call it the rapture, and welcome death.
