    Assuming this is real, we’ve got footage of it on someone’s backyard in Clarkson.

    I saw it. It was crazy. I have never seen anything like it.

    It would be funny if, after all this, it’s not Trump that ends humanity, but a meteor.

    I should play the audio of the War of the Worlds broadcast for the kids.

    I am clearly wrong. The Clarkston video confused me. My wife and I saw a large flash of light in the sky. We dismissed it as “snow lighting”. Seemed odd, no other signs of a storm and seems way to cold for lightning. Did you actually see an object?

    I once saw a “falling star” blaze a path across the sky that seemed as wide as my hand and lasted for seconds. I thought at the time it was the drugs, but others also saw it.

    For those magical thinkers out there, omens in the sky have never been a good thing. I mean even the “star of Bethlehem” ended up foretelling the massacre of the innocents as much as the birth of the messiah.

    Well, Mr Warlord warned us.
    “Haven’t you extraordinarily perceptive folks noticed the many instances of weird shit in recent days and weeks such as planes re-routing mid-flight, power/cell phone outages at major airports, outage at Disneyland, numerous flights to Guantanamo, etc? No glint of awareness that something unusual is happening is creeping in at all? Think! Pay attention!”
    Thanks goodness we were psycho-logic-ally prepared by him.

    I am psychologically prepared for everything that is coming. Been very challenging preparing myself.

    I saw the flash of light, then the meteor.

    The U.S. Geologic Survey confirms that a meteor blew up over the Detroit area tonight, with enough force to register as a 2.0 earthquake.

    I just saw the flash of light through an east facing window. I admit my first thought was that it might be Detroit getting nuked. I wondered if I would still have power and internet in that sort of situation. A minute later or so, I heard a very low rumble that sounded a little like thunder. That and the fact that I was still alive led to a conclusion that it was thundersnow so I resumed watching the TV program I was watching.

    10 minutes later, I looked over at my snoring dog and thought….”wait a minute. that dog has NEVER been calm in a storm” so I checked the weather and then got a little freaked out. Enough to go on twitter. I saw the #TheFlash was trending but then realized it was discussion about a movie about the superhero The Flash. Finally FB had the answer.

    I was walking back home in the snow and suddenly there was a light, like daylight. I looked and there was something burning in the sky. I assumed it was local idiots setting off fireworks but it was too big.

    I am not psychologically prepared for all the “information,” the meteor, which wasn’t a meteor at all, but burning chemtrails from 60 years ago because I saw it on a documentary on a local French TV station but it wasn’t aired because of a giant government cover up of a sex ring that included Donald Trump but Trump was only there because he was gathering information so that he could break it up after he becomes President 15 years later because his stable genius is such that he can predict the future.

    You better be psychologically prepared for the fall out that’s coming or shut the fuck up you dumb bitch.

    Psycho-logic.

    This AM the sunrise was bizarre. The Sun’s rays were clouded and mostly visible in a narrow band rising straight up in like a bright orange beam. My son took one look and said ‘it’s either the rapture or the deep state.’ We’ve been talking about dystopian tales. I’m making sure he’s psycho-logic-ally prepared.

    There’s been a lot of weird stuff happening recently. It’s all connected if you want it to be.

    From the Freep:

    NASA’s findings are similar to that of the American Meteor Society website, “and we have calculated that this was a very slow moving meteor – speed of about 28,000 m.p.h. This fact, combined with the brightness of the meteor (which suggests a fairly big space rock at least a yard across), shows that the object penetrated deep into the atmosphere before it broke apart (which produced the sounds heard by many observers),” according to the Facebook page.

    Hmmm… Think I’ll take a walk out on the lake tomorrow. How much does one of those meteorites fetch?
