You are the President of the United States.
You've just learned that there is an asteroid headed for France that will completely wipe out their entire country.
It is scheduled to hit about 2:30 a.m. in just two days from now.
You have enough ships and military personnel nearby that can help evacuate their people safely, but they are on stand-by in case of war with Iraq.
Your question: do you set the VCR to record the asteroid hitting France, or do you stay up to watch it live?
