14. There's only one ("trojan") asteroid we know is in earth orbit, and this isn't it.

See, http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2011/07/trojan-asteroid-synced-in-orbit-with-earth.html

If 1989 QE2 were in planetary orbit, I'd agree with you. If it's not in orbit around another body other than the sun (that we've been able to determine), and has a satellite of its own, then how has QE2 not cleared its orbit?
