Pretty slim! I agree.
I'm still not moving to Montana any time soon!

Default contingency plan

Sounds like this one goes into the same file as "impact by Texas-sized asteroid" and "massive shift of the Earth's crust":

Contingency plan:
Move into an inside room without windows, get under a large and heavy piece of furniture, put your head between your knees, and kiss your ass goodbye...

And people worry about global warming? If that sucker blows, most of the US is toast. The global climate will be pretty well screwed up, too. Unlike global warming, this WILL happen. It's only a matter of time. I think I still have some distant relatives in Germany, maybe they have a spare room?

Default asteroid

We also have an asteroid that will be pretty close to earth around 2035.
