That is pretty intense

1500 KM's East from Moscow is this location Russia - Chelyabinsk I wonder how much of it hit the ground or if any of it actually made it that far

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

"It was definitely not a plane," an emergency official told Reuters, without elaborating. "We are gathering the bits of information and have no data on the casualties so far."


somebody call will smith and strap obama into a jet plane, it's about to go down.

if there's no confirmation that this 'non-plane' was in fact 'just' a meteor, i'm going looting

Reports conflicted on the event: A spokeswoman for Russia's Emergency Ministry, Irina Rossius, told The Associated Press that there was a meteor shower, but another ministry spokeswoman, Elena Smirnikh, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying it was a single meteorite.

400 people injured! At least not too many sound like serious injuries...

Those videos scared the crap out of me! Makes you realize that something like that can happen almost anytime, any place!
