Latest Images From Comet P/Shoemaker-Levy 9 Collision with Jupiter

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire

But if I had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice
