Or just possibly along with an ~10% false negative rate the algorithm might also have a 0.5% false positive rate and none of those rocks will come anywhere near the Earth within the several century window that we can make meaningful predictions. (On longer time-scales the combination of only being able to approximate solving the n-body problem and the combination of spin and light pressure[^] effectively randomize the positions of smaller asteroids.)
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
