    Remove the good old days when I never heard about an asteroid approaching the earth on a possible collision course? Now you can add the fear of all life on Earth being wiped out (other day rats and roaches) including yourself, your family and friends to your already stessful life.

    Almost daily the internet serves up another story about a killer asteroid or to coming our way. Today I saw that 6 more are coming just in this month.

    Like the old Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times."

    Didn't Jan and Dean sing more about cars than surf?

    Surf City was one of their biggest hits.

    May You Live in Interesting Times?, Dr. Ho Yong - ChinaSprout

    "..... it is not Chinese. There is no such expression, "May you live in interesting times," in Chinese. It is a non-Chinese creation, most probably American, that has been around for at least 30 or 40 years."

    Still, it sounds like something you would read on a fortune cookie.
