    Failed spy satellite (five tons) falling to Earth, could hit our part of aforementioned planet. Everybody panic.

    You need a TARDIS for that. :D

    The thing might land on Hawai'i. Okay, so I admit that it's the part of Hawai'i that's all uninhabited islands where you can't connect to this site, but it's still part of the 50th state.

    Of course, there's a good bit of water there that will probably get the brunt of it.

    This link goes to a .KMZ file that opens in your installed copy of Google Earth; without Google Earth you'll get nothing and like it.

    Whenever I go out over the course of the next couple of days, I'll be sure to take my umbrella with me.

    If it ain't raining, it's not an umbrella -- it's a parasol.

    If the missile does its job, it'll be raining satellite parts.
    If not, well, there's $60 million down the toilet. Thanks for playing.
