I never knew that meteorological reports were so literal

And what if the plane was hit? There'd be a much bigger problem than some land getting burnt.

Meteors are serious business.

They lack properly sized bolides.

I'm not saying it was meteors, but it was meteors.

Meteor shower is well known slang for the kind of shiat where it's half diarrhea and half solid.

Better land the plane because meteors can't penetrate the atmosphere. We'll be safe down here.

For the most part, they don't. And all but the largest objects slow down to terminal velocity long before they hit the ground. If a heavy meteor shower was forcasting and the plane was flying at high altitude, there is some small risk of being hit. But it's pretty small.

The only thing worse than a bad case of the meteor showers is a case of the assteroids. That is when you feel like you're shiatting a turd as wide as a football field is long that threatens to destroy life as we know it.

About the same risk as it being struck by a goose, an eagle, a small Cessna and a military drone all at the same time.

So the fire's fighting firefighters with fire fighters.

Apparently some god out there really, really wants Colorado to burn.

I've never heard of planes being grounded because of meteors. What about commercial air traffic at 20,000 feet? Screw them?

These planes do not fly at high altitude.

In all seriousness, I believe that the people who made the call know more about this than I do, but at the altitude these planes fly it sounds really silly.

This could easily be solved by the application of a golden shower...........


money that is.....extortion is what is happening boys........

Subtard's headline implies a meteor caused a wildfire. Actual headline and article is about firefighting aircraft being grounded due to metor sightings. Reading comprehension. Subtard has none.

The fark? Did the headline just get edited after the fact or did I really misread it three times?...if it is the latter, I retract my previous statement.

Not that unusual. La Garita Meteorite Strike

Scientists from Denver's Museum of Natural History spent a half year trying to find the location of the impact and never did. Which was kinda unusual. Not saying it was aliens, but ...

"they grounded themselves until they could figure out what it was they saw"

Maybe they had the fish.

Of all the euphemisms I've heard for shiat, those two I have not. LOL.

Too many drones crashing into each other.
