Crazy footage from the meteor in Russia just now

Has to be something related to the asteroid (DA 14) passing by tomorrow that the media conveniently doesnt mention. The damn thing is coming closer than some of our highest satellites. We really have no defense against this type of thing.

You an astrophysicist?

Some meteors/asteriods DO have a cluster of objects assoicaited with them- usually due to getting fragmented from gravitation pulls or heating as they pass through the universe- and will then create a 'shower' of events.

But a singular event like the russian stike, with a singular strike 12-24 hrs away is not 'related'.

So given that acient peoples who would run about and sacrifce virgins, whats the modern equivalent?

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3" not "I'm looking for a M3".

I was immediately concern about this too. It is so hard to find any virgins these days. And when you finally do, they are usually so ugly that w are sure to anger the gods, not appease them.
