Been far too long since we had a story from old Blather favourites Pravda, but this one’s a gem. According to our ever-reliable, entirely impartial and impeccably sceptical friends at Pravda, a Russian scientist named Yuriy Lavbin is claiming that the Tunguska Event (beloved of downed-UFO incident hunters) was the result of benevolent aliens blowing a meteorite out of the sky to save our skinny, miserable arses.
The meteoriteâ€™s crash took place long time ago, in summer of 1908. An enormous volcanic ball rushed over the sky with terrifying wallop and thunder-like sound. All the citizens were frightened to death and scared to move out of their houses. A flight of a â€œflamy alienâ€ ended up in an hour in deserted taiga area. In a matter of seconds an explosive wave spread for 40 kilometers, devastating everything living around.
