Ohhh...brain hurts....oww. So much bad science. Stupid philosophizing. Human interest cliches.

I watched the first 2-hour installment of the miniseries "Impact". No wonder ABC dumped this in the summer. A "brown dwarf" hits the Moon, and some pieces of brown dwarf matter land on the Earth. The Moon moves closer to the Earth (in steps, not continuously). Random electrical and gravitational anomalies come and go (sometimes people and trains just start floating up). And yes, the Moon is now in a narrow elliptical orbit around the Earth, but the Earth is at the center of the ellipse, not one of the foci. They can't even get the diameter of the Moon right. Yeesh.
