I hope they take this serious. It has been reported just before that rock hit Russia there was a warning. Many heard a deep booming voice and flash of light from the heavens.
The voice said. "I just hate Communist".

The Russians are supposedly trying to claim their automated air defense systems shot it with a missile. At 33,000mph I kinda have a hard time believing that.

My boy and I are playing with a Russian erector set right now. Probably the same materials their air defense system is built with.

Its possible to hit the target going that fast, but that rock just exploded like the other one that leveled thousands of acres in Russia......Not if but when, the next time we ain't gonna be so lucky.............

These damn rocks have been hitting Russia for years. It happens so much it is routine. They still don't get it.

According to the minor planet center (Camebridge) it was probably 10-20 feet in diameter and exploded high in the atmosphere.

Why just in Russia? Or am I missing something?

There's an asteroid coming close to us, my guess it it's part of that asteroids family.
