This hardly seems possible.

I saw a movie where they did this. The actors name was Will Smith. "Don't look up."

It's crazy to imagine; I would not want to be an enemy of a state of the US. It basically guarantees imminent gruesome death.

I saw hat movie. I hope what you just posted doesn't put us both in mortal peril! :-/
