The WAGD post of the day

well, the big meteor didn't hit us, but a smaller one injured some folks in Russia

The Russian Academy of Sciences estimated that the meteor weighed around 10 tons and was traveling at 10 to 12 miles per second (roughly 30,000 to 45,000 mph) when it disintegrated.
Searchers found a circular hole in the ice, 15 to 20 feet across, in a lake west of Chelyabinsk, and roped it off.
and I presumed everyone had their cellphones with them, but apparently not:
Many of the videos were from dashboard cameras that many Russians use to document accidents.
