        2012DA14 is a crafty one.

        It knew we would all get distracted the big gigantic asteroid coming from the south, so we wouldn't even notice the little one it sent the other way around the sun to nail us from the north.

        It's like when my little brother and I were fighting as kids... I'd wind my right arm up like I was going to throw a big haymaker, only to quickly pop him with a left while he was distracted.
