Watch For Falling Rocks!
Found on Facebook (via Not An Exact Science Show). The fact that there wouldn't be an English-language sign in a Russian-speaking area gives it away that it's fake, but it's a clever idea!

Yes dear Anglophones, there ARE English-language road signs in Russia! I personally see them every day in Moscow. However, this particular one is a hoax. No one would indeed warn about meteorites.
