Andromeda: Big meteor that fell from the sky but didn't do anything?  Meh, call me when windows shatter again.

Listen guys, tens of thousands of meteorites that are >10 grams hit the Earth every day.  Just because you didn't stop to think about it doesn't mean this is a new thing, just usually they fall over unpopulated areas like the ocean (and in normal circumstances no one would bother to search Cuban Twitter feeds for meteorite reports- this one happened before the Russia one per the article).

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad many people are learning about the dangers today and becoming more aware, but we do get hit by a lot of space rocks.

You think I buy that?  You're an astronomer, you're one of them!  You're just trying to keep us all in the dark and mollified so you can protect your precious seat on the secret evacuation spaceships.  WELL I'M ON TO YOU, I WILL NOT BE FOOLED.

Nah, it wasn't a meteorite.  I was standing around at the local Walmart throwing or ejaculating my semen all over people when all of a sudden, it was like Jesus exploded from my penis.  That load was so big and shot so high it landed in another country.  Not that I'm bragging or anything, I'm just saying.

It's all an astroturfing campaign.  All the new or spin-off shows this fall will be meteor-centric.  Grabbed the list of shows from an ad agency that handles work for several networks.  Here are a few highlights:

History Channel: WWII Meteors: Was Hitler an alien?

A&E: Meteor Wars and Meteor Wars : Pittsburgh

Syfy: Ghost Meteor vs Sharktopus Apocalypse Hunter International Wrestling

A few years ago my wife and I buy a Lake house in NW NJ for our son (We live near Manhattan and he needed some room to run).  Small house, whole history behind the area, whatever.  During the home inspection we're checking the basement, huge metal door in a lowered area by the sump pump.  It's completely unmovable and the inspector says it was most likely put there  for support and is cemented in.  Ok whatever.

Two years later an old couple is walking by.  We pass greeting from the deck and the walk up to say hello.

"Do you still have the bomb shelter?"

"What????"

So the two of them come down to the basement and insist that many owners ago there was a full fledged Bomb Shelter installed!!! So I call in a few guys to bust up the cement and get  that door open. 

Took half a day and they call me down to take a look.  The door (maybe 3 inches thick) opens...... to a completely clean room, stocked shelves, cots, batteries, water, short wave radio.  No kidding like the Lost Dharma thing.  Room for 5-6 families, shocking.   

We talked to the local historical folks and we're working on donating a bunch of the stuff before we figure out what to do with the space.  It's 700 sq feet extending out from the house, Shocking!

Then we go into supervolcanoes and the San Andreas fault.


A relatively modest asteroid impact in US Great Plains area sets off the Yellowstone Supervolcano. . .the resulting seismic activity is just enough to make the San Andreas fault finally snap and send LA into the Pacific ocean right as the Supervolcano is thrusting Earth into a new ice age (and taking out a good chunk of the Continental US in the blast).

Some hack in LA is already writing it, I'm sure.

Wow, that's a really good point.  Scary when you think about how close we were to a completely different world back then.

On the news this morning Neil DeGrasse Tyson said that something like this did happen like something-ish years ago and at first WAS interpreted as a nuke until they could prove that it was an asteroid and that is what prevented nuclear war.

Uh does anyone know what exactly he said because I clearly wasn't awake while I watched.
