My understanding is that even though it's going to be passing pretty closely (on the 15th of this year, not 2015), we are actually not at any risk for it actually hitting us. The following article give additional details if you want to know the distances and calculations and all that stuff... http://earthsky.org/space/asteroid-2012-da14-will-pass-very-close-to-earth-in-2013

Not sure about the planet C thing.

It is highly unlikely to me. If it was it would be big news as FunnyLittleFrog said.

If this was actually going to happen, it would be big news. If you want to worry about something that is believed inevitable, then go ahead. I think a better choice is to enjoy life while you have it.

yeah, even if it is true and there is nothing we could do about it, why worry about it? right. Let's live in the now.

I saw that article. I don't think an asteroid is going to hit the planet. Humans have been guessing events that would bring the end of our existence since ages ago. Like Funnylittlefrog said, why even worry about it.
