Then someone should check if it is an asteroid that is getting off track, there might be a slight possibilty that it can destroy the Earth!

A preliminary analysis shows that that particular asteroid is composed of 1.2% iron, 2.6% ice, and 96.2 % semantics.

  • Although the first overall selection in the 1987 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft became a 13-time All-Star, the second overall selection never played in an MLB game. Which proves that baseball is just as incomprehensible as cricket.
  • In Nano Riantiarno's Semar Gugat the main character Semar (not pictured), traditionally a symbol of the people, uses a magic fart.
  • Ruut Veenhoven knows a lot about happiness.
  • Singaporean politician Chew Swee Kee got robbed of his trousers while on a family holiday. And a former Norwegian politican got robbed of all his clothes. AFAPR.
  • An unexpurgated journal of Queen Victoria records her delight in watching Prince Albert shave. Yeeeeech!!!!
  • Eugne Hnard envisaged roof-top helicopter landing pads in 1910, before helicopters had been invented. Just like the russians who invented the napking ring before the napkin was invented by a frenchman.
  • Berit Brnne's first children's book, from 1958, is a story about a sailor's family who adopted children from different parts of the world. Very likely pibbuyr has read that book or heard it on the readio.
  • Tokujiro Kanamori responded to over a thousand questions in defence of the Constitution of Japan, with his answers taking up to an hour and a half each.
  • Mathematician Zhang Yitang proposed a proof that there are infinitely many pairs of prime numbers with a prime gap of 70 million or less. You may not want to know this. Pibbur does.

pibbur who …. something

fixed.

Also, oddly enough, it's been found to be the only asteroid that orbits around itself…

The attention is flattering!

This wouldn't be RPGWatch without turning another innocuous thread into a thread about you. Should rename the site DartWatch.

It is your own fault. As somebody mentioned in a different thread about a different person narcism only gets worse if people react to it.

You don't need to know this :

About names and asteroids

After discovering the asteroid named after Dartagnan, I've spent some time looking for other watchers of astronomical significance, and these are the ones I found (not many):
  • (1442) Corvina - asteroid
  • (4226) Damiaan - asteroid
  • (7886) Redman - asteroid
  • CM - a group of meteorites
  • Omega Centauri - a star cluster

And let's not forget (27182818) Pibbur, a yet to be discovered object in the Oort cloud.

pibbur who before posting this found one google for "pibbur centauri"
