2. Idiots in that 1st vid. Have I mentioned how much I hate sensationalizing already sensational news?

How scary for people to experience. And with the cell phone system being immediately overloaded, not being able to figure out wtf was going on.

3. Whole lotta people in Siberia with dash cams

The damage is really impressive, window frames bent with glass shattered.

They're just lucky it blew apart as far up as it did.

11. You mean a near miss? Who knows?

That one just blew apart a lot closer to the earth. Chelyabinsk was damned lucky, although I'm sure they don't feel that way right now.

12. A blast precursor. Where the shockwave reflects off of the ground causing more damage.

4. It's a METEOR....NOT a landed Meteorite

it's a meteor while streaking across the sky. It's not a meteorite until it lands, if any of it lands, on the ground.

It drives me nuts when so-called news organizations can't get the language right. Amatuers...

5. It DID land

14. It left a 6 meter diameter hole in ice

on a nearby lake. I'd say at least some of it landed.

6. Now how come

in this day and age, we can get clear pictures and videos of meteors, car crashes, plane crashes, earthquakes, volcanoes, murders, all sorts of accidents, rare animals, etc, as they happen or appear, yet when it comes to Bigfoot, the Yeti, the Loch Ness Monster, UFOs, ghosts, vampires, etc....we get blobs and blurs?

7. Bigfoot is easily explained...



People would rather mess with him than take his picture.
