This is from a few years ago. I wonder what the people who thought it was plausible are doing now? Aside from presumably supporting Trump.

Now, now. Plenty of panicky scientific illiterates on the left, too. (They just happen to be crazy about different things. Vaccinations rather than global warming, for instance).

its already poked a hole in the ozone when it left Earth, it will no doubt fall into some aliens backyard killing a beloved pet, and they will retaliate by attacking us! We need a wall to keep them out!

Reminds me of the Big Bang Theory episode when they were doing lunar laser ranging and Penny's boyfriend is concerned that they're going to blow up the moon, to which they reply: "Don't worry, it's set to stun."
