Meteor Strikes Russia!

As I'm sure you've heard, a meteor struck Russia today. Most articles are titled "Hundreds Injured in Meteor Explosion in Russia!" I'm looking forward to the articles two weeks from now that read, "Hundreds Gain Superpowers from Meteor Explosion in Russia!"

Based on a character from Everett Downing's 365 Supers blog and half hill giant, half Russian boxer, Nikolai Valuev.

The actual footage is astounding and well worth a look! If this doesn't inspire you to draw and tell stories, I don't know what will!

Tunguska, v.2.0. Russia and things either falling on them, or threatening to fall on them (M.A.D. during the Cold War).

What's interesting is that on roughly the same longitude as Chelyabinsk, you have the Lac à l'Eau Claire in Quebec, as well as Reindeer Lake in Saskatchewan. Check them out on Google Maps.

On the upside, is good to know Russian radio programs are as annoying as ours.

...Also, notice how non-plused any of the drivers are. "Blyekh, is blowing up. World ends. Da."
