Crimea votes over­whelm­ingly to join Rus­sia, but Jimmy Fal­lon isn’t con­vinced that real Crimeans turned out for the vote. Exit poll par­ti­cipants all look eer­ily sim­il­ar. Or maybe the vote turned out this way be­cause those who didn’t vote to join Rus­sia “answered wrong” and had to try again.

Plus: An earth­quake shakes things up in Los Angeles, a Rus­si­an state me­dia chief warns the U.S. to stay out of Crimean af­fairs, and even Kim Jong-un thinks the Crimean vote looks fishy.
