    Russian meteor strike

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90Omh7_I8vI

    ...Woah. Part of me thinks it's cool but part of me...well, it WAS a strike such as this, though on a much, much larger scale, that killed off the dinosaurs. I hope mankind will develop the technology to prepare for and neutralize such a threat if it happens again.

    This isn't the first time this sort of thing has happened in Russia, btw. Read up here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunguska_event

    Oh yeah, I'm from Russia, and I'm living near this place about 50 miles away.
    It's a meteorite shower here today.
    Some shots from my window:

    And no, there were not planes or something.
    There are real meteorite's tails.

    Courage, truth, honor, fidelity, discipline, hospitality, self-reliance, industriousness, and perseverance are pretty good traits to live by, don't you think?

    Why can't I be in Russia?

    I want a chunk of that meteorite. I will recover a meteorite one day.

    Go to Antarctica. They are literally littering the ground there. The Gobi Desert is another great place to find them.

    When I first saw one of the videos on youtube, I was like "That's totally fake! Those people are still just driving along like it's no big deal!" Then of course I did more researched and read articles and saw other videos and was like "Ohshit!" I would have run in the opposite direction.

    On a side note, it's incredible! Just take out the dangerous and scary aspect.

    Because Russians don't give a damn. They are a hearty people and fear little.

    Our social networks are full with this crap about this accident. Everyone is so overreacted about it here. Ew...
    Hate me, baby.

    I know about all of that, infact I do plan on applying to a research team that goes down to Antarctica.
