It’s the end of the world, as we know it

Meteorite in the skies above Chelyabinsk, Russia.

If I saw this while driving on my way home from work, I’m not sure I’d be driving so steadily.

So this happened earlier in Chelyabinsk, Russia. A freaking meteorite lit up the skies in Russia. Watching the news this morning while eating my breakfast I was fairly sure I was watching a clip from Armageddon. Or Deep Impact.

And tonight a big arse asteroid that could apparently obliterate London, will be hurtling past Earth.

Maybe those Mayans were onto something?

    Yeah I’m kinda worried the Mayans chose one year too early in their predictions…

      Maybe they forgot to carry the one or something.

      CRAZY is the only word I can think to use.

      Ha! Yes. With a crack team of fellow disaster film genre actors 😉

    Holy crappers. That was a very Deep Impact moment. We need to start building underground bunkers right this second.

      Start building? I’ve got a whole neighborhood under my garden ready for this day!

    It is a bit chilling, isn’t it?

      Makes you realise how insignificant the Earth really is. In the grand scheme of things.

    So is that pretty much standard practice for Russians to have dashboard cams? I keep seeing all these Russian dash cam videos. Also how cool it that a big ass meteor!

      Apparently there’s both a lot of corruption in the Russian police force as well as road accidents. So the Russian drivers out there have equipped themselves with their own dash cams. All pretty inexpensive things. Think I read a number, about a million or so drivers have them.

    That meteorite hitting Russia is crazy! I saw some of the vids of windows shattering, that’s terrifying!

      Laughed this morning when I read a story about a guy explaining how his BEARD was torn through by exploding glass. His beard!

    Pretty crazy stuff! Really puts things in perspective. All it takes is just one freak occurrence like that, and everything could be wiped out…

    • Reply Jaina February 20, 2013 at 2:38 pm

      Yup. And that is one sobering thought.

    Cool video, and glad we’re all still here!

      Still here a week later. Let’s see what happens next week 😉

    If the end of the world looks that pretty, I’ll be happy haha!

    • Reply Jaina February 20, 2013 at 3:22 pm

      Haha! That’s a good way to look at it. And hey, at least everyone will be gone and not just you!

    Amazing video I had not seen yet. It would have been freaky to have witnessed it, but exhilarating at the same time.

    • Reply Jaina March 6, 2013 at 9:30 am

      Snap. I would have equally felt like hiding in a big secure cave and going outside just to witness the amazing.
