What on earth are the chances of being hit and wounded by a meteorite?? I thought it was so bizarre when I looked at the news headlines this morning and more than 500 people in Russia had been wounded when a meteorite hit them. http://news.yahoo.com/possible-meteor-shower-reported-eastern-russia-052833588.html  I'm thinking those people all need to start playing the lottery!

I saw that all over FB this morning. I'm betting the Doomsdayers are all carrying around their bug out bags today. lol

I read a story about it too.  Seems like everything is going wrong lately.  Meteorites, cruise ships, gun control.  UGH!
