Can’t you just hear Al Gore screeching ‘Planetary Emergency!’ ‘Planetary Emergency!’ somewhere about now? You just know he and his ilk will blame the meteorite explosion over Russia on global warming…no doubt about it!

Anyway, I’m sure most of you are well aware of what happened today regarding this issue. If not, check it out. – This is via GP:

Five hundred people were hurt in central Russia’s Ural region today after a series of explosions in the skies caused by a meteor shower. The blast sparked panic in three major cities, blew out windows and knocked out cellphones.

Reuters reported:

More than 500 people were injured when a meteorite shot across the sky and exploded over central Russia on Friday, sending fireballs crashing to Earth, shattering windows and damaging buildings.

People heading to work in Chelyabinsk heard what sounded like an explosion, saw a bright light and then felt a shockwave according to a Reuters correspondent in the industrial city 1,500 km (950 miles) east of Moscow.

A fireball blazed across the horizon, leaving a long white trail in its wake which could be seen as far as 200 km (125 miles) away in Yekaterinburg. Car alarms went off, windows shattered and mobile phone networks were interrupted.

“I was driving to work, it was quite dark, but it suddenly became as bright as if it was day,” said Viktor Prokofiev, 36, a resident of Yekaterinburg in the Urals Mountains.

“I felt like I was blinded by headlights,” he said.

No fatalities were reported but President Vladimir Putin, who was due to host Finance Ministry officials from the Group of 20 nations in Moscow, and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev were informed.

  1. It can’t be anything to do with global warming, it HAS to be George Bush’s fault.

  2. Yay! We’re safe!

    Walks on Water must have saved us all!

  3. bigtimer,
    Read that this morning and had to check to make sure it wasn’t from the Onion or Satire World even though I’ve heard they can’t put anything on the internet that isn’t true, Too bad Al Gore can’t open his mouth and say anything that isn’t true but thats not going to happen, like one comment I read it’s God firing a shot across the Bow, too bad it missed D.C.

    • Give Gore time….he’ll be opening his loudmouth, lying yapper soon enough about this, he can’t help himself. – All the while pocketing more money for his bank account while he does so. What fools there are in this country!

  5. That was an interesting write up, for more reasons than one might think. A fellow named Profokiev, same as the famous Russian composer Sergei Profokiev, along with the mention of Yekaterinburg, where Czar Nicholas II and the royal family were executed. Yes, quite interesting. If there were any really, reallyold folks around, it might have reminded them of this:

  6. LMAO…check this out!

    Idiots come a dime a dozen!

  7. Here’s one more that’s laughable as well. ~

    …At least it is to me. – See what you think.

    • That shows how Jose’s brain was affected by using too many steroids and hanging around with Madonna. He did say one thing that was sensible, but even the blind hog occasionally finds the acorn…

    A meteor needs to hit SAN FRANCISCO,LOS ANGELES,WASHINGTON D.C. and THE UNITED NATIONS Building.Im i forgging any other places of liberalism?

  9. Snake ol’ buddy, I can’t deny that you are much smarter and more resourceful than me. But, it’s all about picking the right team.

    • Wow, Mr. Grumpus! Don’t mistake my bluster and popping off for intelligence. Like most Scots-Irish, I only got what I got (which is quite modest) through the dint of hard work and a little common sense. What I had in mind was to get your approval of the T-99 and choice of leading undersecretary. I’ll go to the corner now.

      • Why do I get the feeling you were never sent to the corner?

        • Well, I don’t know about that, but I do know I have a tendency to beat some themes into the ground. The last thing I want to come off as would be a highfalutin’ half-assed intellectual – like my friend Mr. Oharrah once said, I might be more likely classified as an ineffectual. But if there is something out there that looks tremendous and wonderful (T-99, Sofia Vergara), I’m still immature enough to say ‘Wow! Look at that!’.

      • You ever read Born Fighting : How the Scots- Irish Shaped America, by James Webb?

        • I’ve read some excerpts, been meaning to read it for a while. You may have provided the impetus to finally get me started.

  10. Maybe I’ve had too much sauce tonight Dude. Sorry for partying, or getting too soft.

  11. Then there’s this…

    …like Dear Leader would really do that. Give me a break!


    Will that crack-pot JAMES LOVELOCK use his GAIAS REVENGE poppycock to explan this?
