Oops?

Eight months after a meteorite screamed out of the skies over the Ural mountains and shattered — leading to about 1,200 injuries from the shockwave it created — Russian divers pulled a hefty chunk of the space rock from a murky lake.

As shown on live TV in Russia, divers entered lake Chebarkul on Wednesday and pulled a 5-foot long, 1,255-pound hunk of the rock from the water, AFP reported — and promptly broke it.

“The rock had a fracture when we found it,” one unnamed scientist said during the live video feed. As the scientists pulled it from the lake, using levers and ropes, the fracture expanded, splitting it into at least three pieces.

“It weighed [1,255-pounds] before the pieces fell off. And then the scale broke,” he reportedly said.

Did he blame it on the rock? I think he just blamed it on the rock.

Hey, that's what Marxists do, isn't it?

I'd say that Russia is no longer Marxist due to throwing out the Soviet Union, but their retaining that statue of Karl Marx himself instead of doing to it what they did to Lenin's statue in the USSR's collapse makes me unsure (Yes, they did keep it. They showed it in 2016: Obama's America, near the beginning of the film).

Remember that episode of Gilligan's Island when the cosmonauts splash down in the lagoon, break out the vodka and start to cossack dance while Ginger and Maryann served coconut cream pie in skimpy shorts and heels? Well I sure do. Those two hotties ended the cold war.
