Did the Russian meteorite scare the crap out of you? [View all]

After all, it is not everyday that something so dramatic comes crashing out of the sky.

Or did you just find it interesting?

How can one help not feeling apprehensive or vulnerable with such an event?

Obviously, we tend to think this is the last one and the biggest one that will hit earth. We cannot imagine that there is something larger out there that is zeroing in on Earth even as we speak. It was a one-time event, we tell ourselves. But was it?

Was this only the warning sign for something much larger and much more dangerous to our environment?

No one wants to be alarmist in events like this but is it foolish to blow it off or to pretend it was not an historic event?

What are your feelings on the matter?
