The Sky is Falling

A school boy in Germany had the 1 in a million luck to survive a direct hit by a meteorite, which left a 3 inch scar on his hand and a crater in the sidewalk after it bounced off of him!  Check out The Telegraph for the full story, which is quite interesting!

And this really isn’t funny but this bit just gets me…

The only other known example of a human being surviving a meteor strike happened in Alabama, USA, in November 1954 when a grapefruit-sized fragment crashed through the roof of a house, bounced off furniture and landed on a sleeping woman.

My goodness!  What are the chances of THAT happening when you decide to take a nap?!
