today's whoops links

1. Apophis may end up coming closer than we think. Much, much closer.
Whether Apophis ends up on a collision course with Earth depends on what happens during a close encounter between Apophis and our planet in 2029. During this swingby, the Earth's gravity could alter the asteroid's path enough to put it on a collision course with us when its orbit brings it back in 2036.
2. Memorize this rule to avoid being taken for a chump: People who carry large sums of money--real money--will never ask for a stranger's help.

3. Dan Uggla's performance in last night's endless All-Star contest: abominable. But he's gonna be fine.

4. Maybe convenience store thieves should wear safety helmets. Like boxers do.
