Heads Up!

N.J. unidentified falling object may be meteorite

These things do hit things every once in a while. I remember as a kid seeing the picture in the Guinness Book Of World Records of the woman who was hit with one. It crashed through the roof and nailed her in the side.

Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.

Look at the size of it!!

It was 1954 and the woman was Mrs. Hulitt Hodges of Sylacauga, Alabama.

You want to know what else has been it? Check out this list.

These things do some serious damage. And as you can see, the amount of hits increase every 25 years. But I wouldn't worry, the chances of one landing near you is remote. But I do worry that it will take one of these rocks to fall on Washington DC's head before anyone thinks - Hmmm, maybe we should devote some time and money to watching the skies.

Because the big ass meteorites that hit?

We are about 400 years OVERDUE.
