Imagine this a 1000 years ago …

When I look at the majestic and at the same time scary images of the meteorite fall in Russia (e.g. here), I’m wondering what impression this must have made on humans a thousand years ago.

Or imagine something like that during the time of the cold war. Well possible someone would have pushed the button.

    The Colbert Report also did a piece on it, but this one is funnier.
