You won't be able to see 2014 RC with the naked eye, but you may be able to spot it with a telescope. It'll fwoosh past Earth about 2:18 PM (Eastern time).
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Welp, this was something I did NOT need to read.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Scientists at NASA say not to worry. These meteors pass near us all the time. It is the ones they do not see that surprise us like that one in Russia.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

There goes Maria again, believing whatever the government tells her.
