I believe that there are about 5000 unidentified asteroids (or at least the orbits have not been identified).  I have three great worry bubbles; an unexpected asteroid hits the earth; the eruption (every 600,000 years) of the caldera in Yellowstone which would kill millions [and yes it has been active], and ahe canary island tsunami which would take out about 25 kilometers of shoreline from Maine to Florida, caused by the completion of the mountain that partially occurred 50 years ago. 

This new asteroid passed inside the moon;  it was discovered just a couple of years ago. 

According to CDC, the entire radiation emitted from the three nuclear facilities in Japan as a result of the recent quake, were equal to one catscan:  yes, yes, yes, believe it or not.

Our radiation standards are ridiculously stringent.  There are a number of locations around the world, e.g. in Iran and in India where the normal radiation levels are 100,000 times greater than our dumb standard, and people have lived in these areas for at 2000 years.
