Asteroid moving too fast

Myley Cyrus has a great song called 4 x 4 and she sings these lyrics..."Driving so fast that I pissed myself" and that's exactly what comes to mind when you think of Asteroid P 2012 F5.

Hurtling through space like a mad hatter,  the asteroid began to spin. We aren't sure why it begin to spin, perhaps it was struck by another asteroid, or its that it began spinning faster and faster until its "centrifugal force exceeded its gravity." ~ Space dot com.

But spin she did, round and round and round, away it went.

It began to spin so fast it ripped itself apart and hurtled in all kinds of different directions.

That's a hard ride right there.
