You need to install and tune up a bullshit detector. You seem awfully
gullible. Plausibly explained by the meteorite hypothesis? Maybe to a moron.

Then you need to tune up your analysis skills. And your knowledge of
meteoritics. The video was not falsified, and is hardly "phony". What it
shows is plausibly explained by the meteorite hypothesis. Many, perhaps
most meteorite falls are not preceded by a significant fireball, and
even fewer by acoustics of any sort.

I don't hear many people saying there's a "reasonable chance" this could
be a meteorite. I didn't even hear much of that early on. Only that
nothing obviously excludes this from being a meteorite. That's a
distinction well worth remembering. If this had been trivially rejected
from the beginning, no analysis would have been performed, and that
would be unfortunate.

And that's getting real.
