If it had hit directly, said NASA, it would have fried just about every transistor everywhere, caused $2 trillion worth of damage, and basically put us back in the 19th century. The greatest hazard posed by such an event would not be the crippling of all transportation, radio, television, financial markets, etc., but the amok hordes of Millennials, Gen-Xers and Gen-Yers who would suddenly be unable to stay in touch with their nitwit friends on a 24/7 basis. You thought zombies were bad? Wait till you see this bunch when deprived of their hand-held devices. Get another AR and some magazines; you’re going to need them.
