I am inspired by this fireball streaking across the sky.

In Minnesota on Wednesday night, Newsweek reports, a police dashcam captured a meteor hurtling toward Earth from the vacuum of space and vaporizing in the atmosphere in a spectacular ball of light, a reminder that we’re spinning at 1000 miles per hour on a space pebble made up of atoms coalesced from a miraculous primordial blast of inconceivable heat: setting in motion a timeline which would billions of years later allow Diddy’s son to rep Dolce&Gabbana menswear, Selma Hayek to live forever, and you to visit this installment of Jezebel’s weekly series of blog posts “Saturday Night Social”! Thank you for coming.
