Just be grateful it didn’t land on top of me.

Go look at the hole in the ground, and look for meteorite pieces! Take video of the fire department putting out fires!

@zenvelo Beat me to it. But prices for confirmed meteorites can top those for diamonds. Go look for the fragments.

Get signs ready for parking because my yard is huge and those turds at CNN are going to pay a super meteorite premium to have a place to leave their shit.
and it would be nice to see my dog on TV

Be glad to be on the ground and not flying at the time. Then go look for pieces of the sucker. That was amazing.

Scared

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb Why scared? How many people get to see that in their lifetime? If you’re in one piece after the blast wouldn’t you be curious to see what it was?

Well, after the initial ‘oh shit’ wore off, I’d be giddy as a school girl.
I’d hope to hunt for fragments, or at least get a look at the impact zone.

I’d be all like:

HOLY SHIT!

@blueiiznh Unless God defecates large rocks and iron fragments, naw.

@Adirondackwannabe Because a lot of damage was done and people were injured.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb Yeah, it did have a lot of damage and injuries, but fortunately none fatal. Some of the footage is amazing.

janbb's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I rarely actually see news so I miss a lot of visuals but you’re right; when I do, it is spectactular.

I studied the videos for hours and it is in a strange way I am still amazed!
We are truly insignificant.
