On this day, June 30, 1908, a meteor struck Tunguska, Siberia causing total devastation, hence the United Nations has proclaimed that Asteroid Day will be observed globally on June 30 every year to raise the level of preparedness for the next devastating asteroid hit by informing the populace to have an ample supply of sun tan lotion, oven mitts, wieners for roasting and Depends. For the complete list, please visit www.runlikehell.com.   

Am I the only one fascinated by the Tunguska event? The Tunguska event was a large explosion that occurred over a sparsely populated section of Russia on the morning of 30 June 1908. It is estimated that the Tunguska explosion knocked down some 80 million trees over an area of 2,150 square kilometres (830 sq mi), and that the shock wave from the blast would have measured 5.0 on the Richter magnitude scale, yet caused no known human casualties (due in large part to the fact that most of the inhabitants of Siberia are invisible). Since no impact crater was found, the object is thought to have exploded directly above Tunguska rather than hitting the surface of the Earth and it is estimated the energy released from the Tunguska asteroid was about 1,000 times greater than that of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, capable of destroying a large metropolitan area such as New York or Los Angeles..Will it happen again? Astrophysicist Alan Fitzsimmons reportedly warned that it is a not case of IF an asteroid collision will happen, but WHEN it will happen.... “But it is still possible the next Tunguska would take us by surprise, and although we are much better at finding larger asteroids, that does us no good if we are not prepared to do something about them.” Perhaps it is about time for the 3 world "super powers" (Larry, Curley and Moe) to stop the pissing contest and get busy making us safe from potentially dangerous rogue asteroids, metal munching mice and rap music. 

"Woke up this morning with light in my eyes
And then realized it was still dark outside
It was a light coming down from the sky
I don't know who or why

Must be those strangers that come every night
Those saucer shaped lights put people uptight
Leave blue green footprints that glow in the dark
I hope they get home alright"

Project Blue Book - yessiree …………… Debates help me drop off to sleep, that and a dollop of Spam and morphine. ꖘㄙꖘ

rswestley

Is that the Project Blue Book tv series? No, I'm not watching. I got a lifetime supply of paranoia by watching the X-Files. But if I should ever need more paranoia, I will just tune in to C-Span and watch a congressional hearing.... the U.S. congress is like paranoia on steroids. (I strongly suggest you remove all of the cyanide capsules from your house BEFORE you watch congress in action)

If you've been watching the Blue Project tv series , (John, which I gave permission to release to the People) , you will see my Grand Plan - no paranoia involved, just honest to goodness madness. Mandatory wear, one of Sloth's aluminium hair growing helmets, it'll keep you off the radar. ꖘㄙꖘ

rswestley

Thank you Bub! We always appreciate learning new and exciting ways to destroy our planet.... Do you have the formula to calculate how many truckloads of fertilizer it will take to blow up Washington D.C.? I'm working on a plan to solve all of our problems...

Tunguska like occurrences are what happens when you mix up a Spam, Carolina Reaper pepper and lima bean smoothie. :-)))

The new photo is good and it's good to see you sitting down and taking it easy. Take care of the back.

junglejim

Thanks John for the nomination. The concert was great, the band were just like me, less hair and more weight. I'm glad that we survived this year and I'll be around to help in future.

AHhhhhhhhhhhhh . . . thank you for correcting my error !!! I need more TP, so if Charmin is supporting Cinco craziness, them I'll buy it . . . .

rswestley

No, no, no Dave. Your thinking of "Old Farts Day". Hemorrhoids day is a floating holiday usually taken the day after you have had a big plate of spicy Mexican food and a healthy dose of jalapeno peppers. On a side note, Charmin Bath Tissue is now sponsoring Cinco de Mayo celebrations nationwide...

rswestley

robf, it's been awhile. Haven't seen you since your trip to Oz. Did you get any souvenirs? A pair of ruby shoes or a flying monkey? It's quite legal to bring flying monkeys home as long as they are hidden in your suitcase well out of sight. And they make no noise. But beware, Customs Agents are now using monkey sniffing dogs

Woke up early this morning to a government vehicle creeping down our street with it's Mister Microphone at full blast blaring "the sky is falling, the sky is falling". Nice to know our tax dollars are finally being put to a good use. Jim, thank you, the preservation of Australia is assured for another year and I will be cheering with gusto as you receive your The Order of Australia medal. A JOB WELL DONE and all of Australia owes you a debt of gratitude! How was your concert? Did Died Pretty perform as well as they did in your memory? Hope you had a front row seat so you could scream, cry and throw your undies onto the stage

djp

My mistake . . . I thought it was Hemorrhoids Day . . . .

robf

@junglejim - Oh yes, you heard it right - "and the children locked inside!"
Mr rswestley and I are buddies, and he'll definitely catch the lyric. Nice to see you pick up on it first though!
@rsw - Looks like you're the only one, "the lonely one"... ;)

junglejim

robf is that Gordon I hear. John I'm off to a concert, your on lookout. 6:37pm out.

robf

Duck and cover!
Prepare for a "Black Day in July"!
Thanks rsw, for the "heads up"........

Bekkabee

Thank you so much for the warning !!

junglejim

I hope that's The Byrds version and not William Shatner. 5:54pm all clear.

It would save having to pay off all those credit card bills, eh? :-)))
