IIRC that is not an unusual occurrence, although back when the solar system was young, it happened far more frequently. IMO, this is what we should be doing with all the near-earth-orbit asteroids & comets - attach a small ion thruster to them and nudge them safely into ol' Sol.
Actually, for icy comets, I'd like to see them put to better use -- to nudge Venus & Mars into the Lagrangian positions 60 degrees front and aft of Earth's orbit, where they would be in stable orbits. A side benefit would be to give both planets water oceans and thus start terraforming them.
Let me be the first to claim Terra-Venus' largest continent as Fazers-Land. With any eventual capital city as Buck E. Beaverville .
While I'm at it, in Fazers-Land, all females 18+ will be required to wear Bulgarian Airbags , as a safety measure and also to enhance the scenery ..
A Bulgarian woman driver escaped relatively unscathed from a head-on pile-up with another vehicle when her 40DD breast implants absorbed most of the impact, Ananova reports.
Elena Marinova, 24, of Sofia, pranged her motor in the northern city of Ruse. Both cars were written off and the other driver seriously injured, local paper Standart reported.
A police expert explained: "[The implants] worked just like airbags - protecting the victim's ribs and vital organs from damage." He did, however, add: "They are not as safe as the real thing because they exploded, which airbags are not supposed to do."
