I remember when I first learned to drive, I was told that there was an "understanding" with law enforcement authorities that you could go 5 mph over the speed limit and not get a ticket. Is that really true in Missouri and Illinois? The answer is probably more complicated than you think.
If you live in Illinois or Missouri long enough, you will see a tornado eventually. That being said I highly doubt you've seen a twister that seemed to give birth to a rainbow like one did in Illinois this week.
What's your worst nightmare when flying (other than crashing)? I've boarded many a plane in my life and the one scenario I've always dreaded is potentially flying through a tornado. There's a video that appears to show that nightmare in action as a plane flies through a twister in St. Louis.
If you were anywhere near St. Louis overnight Tuesday and looking up at the sky, you were treated to a huge explosion by a space rock spotted over the big city. If not, no worries. There are pics and video showing you what happened.
