I think it is a waste of money and time to worry about an asteriod or comet hitting the earth. If we do detect such a thing, there will be nothing we can do about it.

Humanity could use a good kick in the ass anyway. And if it were to wipe out all of mankind, oh well.

Just a little piece of trivia:

In 1997 (the last year I heard statistics), there were fewer people looking for Earth-crossing asteroids in the world than employees at one McDonald's restaurant.
