    A comet versus the sun

    I don't want to give anything away, but the sun wins.

    And here I was hoping for a thread debating who would win this sort of match up. For the record, I was leaning comet due to its superior athleticism.

    Comet had some force though, holy cow. Caused a pretty big flare out.

    Unfortunately, the nerds at nasa had to ruin it all and say the flare up was actually coincidence. The flare came too early before the comet impacted the sun. Now, I say what do they know. They are just guessing like us anyway.

    I am with you. All of that open space (a galaxy worth) to take advantage of the comets speed and they run it up the middle, against the freakiní sun? Really bad coaching.
