In Russia, Meteor Always Finds You

...is the would-be punchline to a joke that might not be all that funny to the people in Chelyabinsk, Russia who probably thought for a few seconds today that the world was ending...

Anyway, I'm sure you've heard the news and have likely seen the video, but here it is again in case you missed it or just can't get enough of it.


Seriously, does every Russian driver have a dashboard cam in his/her car? But, when you think of the meteor explosion that occurred in the skies over Tunguska, Siberia about 105 years ago and devastated 2000 square kilometers of forest and wildlife, you've got to figure it's probably worthwhile to always have a handy-cam on you if you're living in Russia.

In America, NASA astronomers always find meteor, but in Russia meteor always find you.

Did I tell that joke already?...
