3. It can't have been a meteor or alien invasion...
It didn't land in the middle of Manhattan.
Everyone knows that everything that might come from space to kill us all lands in the middle of Manhattan. It can land in other places, but it has to land in the middle of Manhattan, too. Well, according to every Hollywood disaster/apocalypse movie I've ever seen.

14. Remarkably little holy crap. Whole lot of business as usual.
In America and most of the West. Traffic would come to a standstill as everyone stopped to gawk.
In Russia and what looks like a Hollywood style nuke flash: complete turn into car park; maintain highway speed; drive as if absolutely nothing had happened.

13. Meteorite hits central Russia, more than 500 people hurt
CHELYABINSK, Russia (Reuters) - More than 500 people were injured when a meteorite shot across the sky and exploded over central Russia on Friday, sending fireballs crashing to Earth, shattering windows and damaging buildings.
People heading to work in Chelyabinsk heard what sounded like an explosion, saw a bright light and then felt a shockwave according to a Reuters correspondent in the industrial city 1,500 km (950 miles) east of Moscow.
A fireball blazed across the horizon, leaving a long white trail in its wake which could be seen as far as 200 km (125 miles) away in Yekaterinburg. Car alarms went off, windows shattered and mobile phone networks were interrupted.
"I was driving to work, it was quite dark, but it suddenly became as bright as if it was day," said Viktor Prokofiev, 36, a resident of Yekaterinburg in the Urals Mountains.
