Alright here we go again…
A new report is being buzzed about the internets concerning a giant planet four times the size of Jupiter, that has apparently been lurking on the dark side of town, in an area called the Oort cloud, which is an outer shell of asteroids in our solar system.
Two astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmire from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette first proposed Tyche’s existence in order to explain a change in path of comets entering the solar system and now scientists are saying they’re close to confirming their hypothesis.
According to Whitmire, Tyche will almost certainly be made up mostly of hydrogen and helium and will probably have an atmosphere much like Jupiter’s, with colourful spots and bands and clouds, he added, ”You’d also expect it to have moons. All the outer planets have them.
For those of you that don’t know, conspiracy theorists have been shouting their heads off about some mysterious planet called Nibiru – or Planet X – which apparently is heading straight at us and will collide with earth in 2012. You know, the whole Mayan thing. Well, the whole deal sounds pretty wacky to me, especially when you read more about it. For instance, they believe that aliens from Nibiru visited ancient Sumeria and created the human race by tampering with the genetic structure of primates in order to enslave us for the purposes of mining for gold.
Still, all of a sudden we’re hearing about supernovas exploding, two suns, a friggin’ asteroid due in 2036 and NOW there’s some strange giant planet hidden in an asteroid belt just off our front porch?
I admit…I’m a tad unsettled…a skoch spooked…a bit rattled…slightly freaked…uh…you get the picture.
Of course, even if that is ‘Planet X’ out there, biding its time, waiting to open up a colossal can of whoop-ass on our beloved little orb – what can we do? I say, smoke em’ if you got em’…if it’s the end of the world, then at least we’ll all go down together my friends. Besides, in the end – isn’t it all just an illusion?
