mr lawson: btw...i don't think I am insane (jury's out)...but.....i have be dealing with this shiat for waaaaaaaay too long.  Hell i maybe insane (Occam's razor and all)...but god damn it!


Or it's a variation on deja vu.  Have you written any of your dreams down before the events?  If not, it may just be a glitch in your memory and you're just as sane/insane as the rest of us.

I was thinking the same thing. The time of Reunion is upon us! Praise Jenova!

Oh great--now on top of all this, we have the Jenova's Witnesses coming into the thread...

/in all seriousness, though, interesting that this is a separate meteor--the big one that just passed by was just the diversion whilst the universe beaned us with the rock-spitball from behind :D


It's pretty unfathomable- the odds of the closest known asteroid pass of the Earth and the the most destructive meteorite of the last 65 years happening on the same day is just nuts.

The fundies are going to go batshiat.

But seriously, Tugunska in 1908,  Sikhote-Alin  in 1947, and now this one today. Russia gets all the good meteorites.

NASA placed it as the largest since Tunguska, today.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: These videos got me wondering:  How hard would it be to learn to speak even some basic Russian?  For some reason, the language has always intrigued me a bit.


I carry this in my wallet.

Я сдаюсь

If Google translator hasn't given me a bum steer it translate to, "I surrender". I have wrote down it sounds like, "Yahs vanusha".

Anyway it makes the Russian girls giggle.

I'm glad it didn't knock 2012 DA14 into us.

It came from a completely different direction than 2012 DA14.

Sorry if this is a repeat but apparently      55° 12' 48.5" N, 61° 22' 53" E  is   where it struck.

The next time someone has to stand up in front of congress and ask to get a sky survey program funded, their entire presentation should just be this one image.

Holy cats that's epic.

Do you have any more of these?

darth_shatner: 700 posts and no reference to this movie yet?

I feel old

What is that movie?

I kid I kid, HAIL MING!

/Max Von Sydow has crapped better roles than any modern actor has won an oscar for.

Captain Steroid: Lemme get this straight: while scientists all over the freaking WORLD were tracking, for WEEKS, a meteorite that they knew would fly over Indonesia without a problem, a SECOND meteorite went UNNOTICED and crashed somewhere in Russia?!

Man, do our astronomers suck! >:-(


Needles in a very large haystack, dude.

It happened here in the SF bay area around 7:30. Not as big, but still a good fireball apparently.

From the only War Of The Worlds movie worth watching.

Well that's because it was the only one made, duh.

There have been at least three.

You probably also believe that more than one Highlander movie was ever produced.


Not sure whether you're just being snarky or are an dense as a literal interpretation of your woulds would indicate.

I would not dignify the two Highlander sequels by referring to them as "movies." "Train wrecks" would be more apt.

But, yes, there have been three (that I know of) versions (not sequels) of War of the Worlds:

The well known 1953 "original," with Gene Barry and Ann Robinson.

The 2005 Tom Cruise re-make.

And the fairly obscure "true to the book" period piece version with Anthony Piana and Susan Goforth. Horribly acted, incredibly good musical score, endless scenes of endless walking, and a few - a very few - decent special effects.

They don't normally hit us from space.

Unless a meteor is big enough to have a volcano on it.

I think you just stumbled onto the next SI-FY channel movie: Volcano from Space. It'll be great : )

At least they didn't have to poop in a bag.

Holy sunofabiatch, that must have been the moment of one of the more violent explosions that took place.  Look at that fireball in the wake!  AWESOME!!

LOL...I was just alluding to Bobby Jindal's comments (in his SOTU rebuttal four years ago?) that the government shouldn't waste money on basic scientific research, like volcanology. And thinking to myself that I was confident that even today there are Republicans arguing that two giant-assed asteroid/meteorite close shaves in one day is just Jeebus warning us to send the Sodomites to the camps, women back to the kitchen, etc., and that there is no need to look too closely (i.e., spend money on) studying His handiwork.

/the allusion may have been too indirect...sorry

What a Russian boom might look like.

No boom today. Boom tomorrow. There's always a boom tomorrow. What? Look, somebody's got to have some damn perspective around here! Boom. Sooner or later. BOOM!


Not long after that aired the first time, I posted this on the GEnie SFRT (Science Fiction and Fantasy RoundTable)'s Babylon 5 non-episode-specific CATegory's B5 Filksongs TOPic:

♪♫ Su-sie Ba- | boom, Su-sie Ba- | boom, ♫♪
♫♪ She | lives on a | Sta-tion with a | Gar-den in bloom. ♪♫
♪♫ Her | fel-low crew | knows that | an-y-time | soon, ♫♪
♫♪ | Su-sie thinks the | Sta-tion will go: "Ba- | BOOM!!" ♪♫

Evil Mackerel should also get a kick outta this...
