MOSCOW  (AP) — Fragments of at least one meteorite fell in the Chelyabinsk  region some 1,500 kilometers (930 miles) east of Moscow, causing flashes  in the morning sky and sharp explosions, Russian officials said Friday. The office of the governor of the regrussihere were no immediate confirmed figures or specific reports on damage.
Reports  conflicted on the event: A spokeswoman for Russia's Emergency Ministry,  Irina Rossius, told The Associated Press that there was a meteor  shower, but another ministry spokeswoman, Elena Smirnikh, was quoted by  the Interfax news agency as saying it was a single meteorite.
The  ministry said some fragments fell near the town of Satka, about 200  kilometers (120 miles) from the regional capital city of Chelyabinsk.

LOL.
That's what big countries get from their large land masses.
Why should I have any simpathy with that,
or even get a damn.

These meteors really got it in for Siberia huh? Slightly more to the West and they could have saved us all a lot of future trouble...

And Sulla, I sometimes wonder what the world would be like if the one that hit Tunguska in 1908 had hit an European metropolitan area instead of such a distant desolate place.

Are you suggesting that "big countries" are inhabited by lesser humans?

No, he's suggesting that 1500 km east of Moscow there's hardly anyone there (depending on were i struck or exploded). So it's not lesser humans, just less humans.

Seems like it did some damage and injured quite a few people (if only indirectly) though, so it is quite a serious event. And at least gives me an ire feeling considering how small it was.

That is not what he meant..... LC was suggesting that we should have less sympathy for the inhabitants of bigger countries.

A callus and disgraceful comment, absurd bordering on the obscene...
