I participated in MacHeist 3 from the outside but this time around I want to get deeply involved with this great community.  MacHeist 4 looks to be great fun so far.  The DaisyDisk app is the best visualization app for the content on a HDD I have used yet.

It's obviously not going to hit us!
Otherwise MacHeist would be squished too....

We're going to duck, and it'll hit the guy behind us,  huge bar brawl ensues.....

It's worse than that. If it goes straight past us, in the current planetary arrangement it'll hit the sun. Not the sort of star you want a fight with.

Nope. Now I see THEM!

There are OTHER object accompanying the BIG object! So far I count 5 of them! They are smaller appearing asteroids, all spinning. One of the is clearly IN FRONT of the big asteroid. Heading off toward the top right corner of the scope are two more. Then around the perimeter of the big one I see two more.

Folks we have an asteroid SHOWER on our hands. We are well and truly F**KED!

Let's party!

No I have NOT been drinking already! Go see for yourself, grumpy! 5 more asteroids. Shall I name them?

I CLAIM NAMING RIGHTS!

Big roid = Preparation H
One directly in front of it = Bossy 1
One to Bossy's right = Amelda 252
One to Amelda's right = Podiafetishista 69
The first one on the lower right = Bud
The one below and other left of Bud = Zunipus XII, named after myself of course.

Anyone notice the smaller astroids behind the big one?

Looks like an armada of starships is coming for us.

Probably going to teach us a lesson about altering the space-time continuum.

Great find, although I'm counting 20+ if you include the tiny one-pixel ones and the ones that are directly in front of the Big One that you can see only in the animation.

That's "Leeloo" (as in "Lee" in "Bruce Lee" and "Loo" as in "where you poo").

And the Diva Plavalaguna was one of the more artistic aspects of the whole movie - giving the movie that "just right" element it needs to be worth watching again. Right after Milla Jovovich's nude scenes, of course wink

Except, of course, that sampling section of her song. It was like being back in the 80's. Baby, I-I-I can't wait! I did love the movie though. It was some seriously good storytelling.
