This one is better
Of course it hasn't been applied to Chelyabinsk yet

What the fark, really? Just when you thought that conspiracy theories can't be more absurd!

So Barack Obama has a magic meteor machine in addition to his time machine?

I thought the meteor truthers thought it was an American nuke missile that exploded too early.

By "Liberal" I know you don't mean "not bought-and-sold by Putin's regime", which is what she is not. But I know the word "liberal" has magical powers to cloud your mind, and you feel it has the same meaning everywhere in the world. Please proceed.

"One-Winged Angel" would be a cooler Presidential theme than "Hail to the Chief."

Look, the melting point of a stony-iron meteorite is way to high to melt on atmospheric re-entry. I did a test using a bowling ball and lighter fluid that proves it.

cgraves67: I thought the meteor truthers thought it was an American nuke missile that exploded too early.


Which is why we have Dash-cam recordings of it, and not a molten crater of radioactive slag, right?

I've never understood how conspiracy theorists explain nuclear explosions in the course of their derp. It's neigh impossible to hide one in a modern age. Even the North Koreans, who set off one not too long ago with less energy than Hiroshima's weapon had, couldn't do it.

You can't hide a nuclear detonation. And the yield on the current American nuclear weapons in use isn't small in the least.

You only think they're stupid because that's what the mainstream meteor tells you to think.

There were boobies?  I second that.

Wasn't there some rod device that would orbit the moon (or outside the moons orbit) then slingshot innert hunks of metal or rock around the moon and use earth's gravity to accelerate it to deadly speed.  This was clearly a test of that system.

Yeah, but when it's in Russian being shouted by a paranoid drunk man, it's funnier.

Normally I'd mock them to. But I really believe that Putin can pull stuff like this off.


Never doubt the Putin.

As that whale-sized thing exploded in the atmosphere, a small bowl of petunias impacted 30 miles due west of that point nearly simultaneously.  The pentunias' only thought was "oh no, not again."

There is that word conspiracy again, everybody knows it's code for crazy. Because people working together without everyone knowing about it, is just crazy!

Color me suspicious when I am told that ON THE SAME DAY as a once in a lifetime near miss with an asteroid a bunch of completely unrelated meteors hit Russia (or Soviet Union if you are a Republitard).

The recent meteor strikes are all happening because of Planetary Resources, Inc. They claim they're going to send robotic miners to asteroids, but that's ludicrous; their true plan is to drag asteroids back to Earth orbit to mine them more conveniently. They don't have it quite down yet, though, and they don't give a damn if a billion people have to die in a global mass extinction if that's what it takes to make a profit.

IMHO people should lighten up on those whose opinions and theories differ from their own. nothing wrong with thinking outside the box, being creative and imaginative, or considering alternative possibilities. people who just accept everything the mainstream feeds them might be the fools. i feel creative genius is the most important kind of genius. awful lot of science is just theory, not fact. yet people parrot what they read or are told as if they were there. mankind is a truly arrogant lot.

honestly it makes pretty good sense... throw a simple probe up with a set of say vasimir thrusters and plenty of gas in the tanks, and have it bring the meteor into a parking orbit in LEO. then some guys motor over from a orbital station and get to work on wrapping the thing in an inflatable heat shield(they're an actual thing. really fascinating), and then have the probe blow the last of its fuel dropping the rock into say, the NM desert.  provided the rock is a nice shape, you could easily predict where it's gonna land to within a mile or two. hell they could paint giant bullseye/target field and take bets on where it'll land.

or even send the probe out with the inflatable heat shield built in, and it does direct insertion(with an orbital alignment segment for safety)

cause let's be honest, a probe that's little more than a good guidance system and an electric thruster would be bloody damn cheap to build, far cheaper than the mining bots they're talking about using.

It's that time of the... well, whatever time it is... to yell at clouds and getting off my lawn.

While I appreciate that the youngsters, boys and girls alike, have embraced their cartoon and video game loving ids, and fully display them to all of us incessantly on the boards... AND GOD BLESS THEM FOR IT IS THEIR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO DO SO... I don't much care for them.

Feel free to like ponies and bronies and anime and furry-wearing "hotties" and video games made for the Japanese kids (melodrama much?), but being surprised that some of us don't know the reference because we aren't into that... that's like me bringing up specific Mexican-American lit stories in a thread to prove a point that the American Dream isn't any one dream at all, and then being surprised when the average kid has never heard of that story let alone its author.

So shove off, brony lover. In my day, we didn't get our stories by pressing X button incessantly until the one line dialogue strips were complete, we got it from our dungeon master in a thousand myriad accents while chugging down the Dew.

Yes, conspiracies never happen, citizens. Now obediently mock anyone who says they do.

Uh, I'm no physicist, but doesn't everything in outer space just fall by definition?

Yes, but this "fall" happened in the winter. You don't -- that's just not possible! It's like a boulder springing from the ground in the summer! Connect the dots, man!

Really? "It was a missile gone astray, not a meteor" is a LOT less insane sounding than "No plane hit the pentagon! And the ones that hit the towers fired missiles in the instant before impact" and especially "There was no moon landing!"

They're right, you know. I don't like saying this, but that thing was definitely artificial. It's just like the time when the mammals worked with the birds to kill all the dinosaurs.
