I saw an orange fireball streak horizontally across the sky one night while I was on the deck having a smoke at a friend's place.  Nobody believed me when I told them about it because I was stoned.

It's better to vote for the Giant Asteroid That Just Misses than no asteroid at all. There's too much at stake this election year. Maybe next election year we can have the Giant Meteor That Doesn't Miss.

I dunno.  I need to see the meteor debate the president.

I'd pay some damn good money for that livestream.

/ he'd probably interrupt it left and right and not give it an opportunity to obliterate him.

this is why i put all my money on big meteor...

when it hits i would have to work another day for the rest of my life !!!!

Good news everyone. We are already dead.

I once saw a fireball like this flash through the sky. Fortunately someone at the local observatory got a picture. Even I was kind of doubting what I saw.

/it turned out to be a Soviet booster rocket burning up in the atmosphere, which was pretty ominous in its own way.

Don't blame me, I voted for Apophis.

I'm a little jaded on Meteor for president after discovering all meteors burn up in the atmosphere in mere seconds. Doesn't sound like it will make it the whole 4 years, and VP asteroid is way out of touch. And even if meteor does make it to earth (and not cause an extinction event) then it will just be a meteorite... basically a rock. Do you want a rock as president? Ok, not a fair question in 2020, but ya gotta say "space rock for president" just doesn't have the same pizzazz.

Yeah it's kinda being rammed home that we really have no choice. Botox man or orange man. Who thought that these were the best choices. It's a joke and an embarrassment. Oh look! Shiney thing in the sky!

I still remain on the middle, between, on the boundary line..

Has anyone named the meteor yet? I suggest "Corey Booker".

Yeah Steve! If you're going to Earth, actually hit it!

/preferably around either Moscow or Washington DC

Well, yeah, it did go kinda green there at its brightest flash.

Fun fact. There's a battery of Patriot missiles beneath Heinz Field aimed at Cleveland. Usually, these things have dual key arming systems, but for some reason they gave Terry Bradshaw a single button fob.

Why did this go viral and not the one I saw the day before?
 
2020-09-30 10:52:17 PM  
So thats what it was.
I saw 2 flashes up here in Ontario and just assumed it was lightening since rain was on the way.

It should've hit Cleveland.  Even if it didn't hit the debate, flattening The Factory of Sadness would've been better.

I'll always find it interesting that some Americans think that the correct solution to how badly they're farked up their own country is to destroy the planet that the other 95.6% of the world population who don't live in that shiathole are sharing with them. Speaks volumes, really.

You don't give us enough credit. We've farked up a hell of a lot more than just our own country.
