Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

I've seen a lot of the youtube footage and it was some crazy shit..I'm suprised there wasn't any warning.

Quote:

Russia Today reported that an air defense unit at the Urzhumka settlement may have blown the meteorite to pieces at about 20 km above the Earth.

The rumour originated with the local Znak newspaper, quoting a military source - though it cannot and has not been verified.

The source said the vapor condensation trail of the meteorite showed it had been intercepted by a missile.

It probably just vaporized in the atmosphere. :shrug:

Ironic I had just read about this about a month ago, shit could have been worse.

Tunguska Event

Irony: looking out your window to look at the flash of light in the sky, only to have the window shatter and fuck your shit up like 15 seconds later (if only people knew how to into physics, otherwise they would be like "oh shit shock-wave"!)

>implying I know how to into physics (it's a 4chan meme, so keep the grammar police away).

There's no way they intercepted it.  That's a load of shit.

Seems perfectly plausible to me, just a question of technology.

What stops anyone from shooting a rocket at an airborne projectile with predictable trajectory besides other people?

Technology and knowing that it is going to be in that place at that time.  They had no clue these meteors were coming, so they would not have had time to "shoot them down"

Creepy that it happened on the same day that asteroid 2012 DA14 passed by within 17,000 miles of us, closer than some satellites are. But they say its unrelated.

And as far as predictability, there is no way to see all of them coming. I mean, we only know about 10% or so of the asteroids around us, there is no way we can see every single little one coming. If a huge one ever hit us, more than likely we would have little to no warning anyway. :shrug: might as well live without fear of those flying rocks!

I'd just like to mention: one of the reasons it's unlikely that they intercepted it is this: the reason meteors and shit burn up in the atmosphere is because the friction disintegrates them because of how fast they are moving. I'm not sure we have many missiles that move at those speeds. 33,000 Miles Per Hour, (33,000/60)=550 Miles Per Minute, (33,000/60)= 9 and 4/30ths Miles per Second, or (9.13*1.6)=14.69 Kilometers per second.

That's fuckin fast.

A quick google search shows our fastest missile to be nowhere near those speeds.

But if you want to think it think it, i just wanted to put that into perspective.

Not that I think they shot it down, but its not like they had to catch up with it. They could have triangulated its speed vs the missiles location and then its just a matter of angles and timing, no?

I really don't know what I'm talking about because I'm god awful at math, but it seems like the possibility is there.

Plotting an intercept course would require foreknowledge of the exact trajectory of an irregularly shaped object as it enters the atmosphere.  There would be no way to calculate what direction it would go upon entry.
The meteor would have had to been taken out on it's orbital approach BEFORE it entered the atmosphere, but nobody saw it coming.
