An asteroid is expected to pass within 1.1 million miles of Earth sometime Wednesday, and although the Houston Chronicle reports NASA as saying that “there is no possibility for the asteroid to collide with our planet,” the paper did leave some wiggle room in its tweet just in case.

Thursday’s good for us.

You’ve got to admit, it holds up.
