Reading about the humongous asteroid that had a near miss. Or at least, the astronomers lost it:

Last night, a giant asteroid was supposed to streak by the Earth, close enough for us to catch a glimpse as it zipped by. Except it never showed, and now astronomers say they have no idea just where the 900-foot asteroid has gone.

So, just how does one misplace an asteroid the size of three football fields?

Beats me. It seems to me that the best way to go is to not see the end coming.
