Man hit by six meteorites is being 'targeted by aliens'
Metro UK ^ | 7/19/2010 | Metro UK

A Bosnian man who claims he is being targeted by extraterrestrials
after a series of meteorite strikes on his house has now been hit by a sixth space rock in the space of a few years.

_______________________________________


Radivoje Lajic first came to international attention in 2008, shortly after the fifth meteorite had crashed into the roof of his house in the northern village of Gornji Lajici.

And now, within the past month, another rock has hit the roof of his house, in defiance of all the odds - making it six strikes since the plague of meteorites began in 2007.

Experts at Belgrade University have confirmed that all the falling rocks he has handed over were meteorites. They are now trying to work out what exactly it is about his house that particularly attracts them. The strikes always happen when it is raining heavily, he says, never when there are clear skies.

Lajic has his own explanation, of course. After the fifth rock struck his house, he said: 'I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials. I don't know what I have done to annoy them but there is no other explanation that makes sense. The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit six times has to be deliberate.'

50-year-old Lajic has had a steel girder reinforced roof put on the house to protect it from the alien bombardment - which he funded by selling one of the meteorites to a university in the Netherlands.

'I have no doubt I am being targeted by aliens,' he adds. 'They are playing games with me. I don't know why they are doing this. When it rains I can't sleep for worrying about another strike.'

I can’t think of any reason to not believe him! It’s not bad enough that we have one of them, an alien, in the Oval Office. Now they are starting to throw rocks at other countries.

That rock he’s holding doesn’t look like a meteorite.

So none of the rocks actually hit him? That would have been more news worthy...*Man beaned six times by Arachnids from planet Klendathu. Declares personal war against the bugs.

On the one claw ...

Yeah, after six meteorite strikes, I might be thinking in terms of aliens, too.

On the other claw...

Meteorites are extremely valuable; universities and museums pay good money for those things. So do private collectors. The little green men might as well be chucking gold at him.

Color me baffled. The odds of this happening by chance are about 384,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 to 1 against!

That rock looks like a carbonaceous chondrite. There are at least 5 different subgroups of just that kind.

You are probably thinking they should all look like nickel-iron or stony meteorites, but they don't. I had one that looked pretty much like slag ~ found it in an old Indian campsite near home ~ everything was gone but their stone work, and the de riguerre hunk of meteorite.

Every time I drive by this dude’s house, he’s looking out the window at me. Freaky. So I sneak up thru the back yard and throw a rock or two. Makes us even.

Meteorites are worth a lot of money. Even more since he had six strike in the same place. God is trying to help him out and he just keeps handing them over to the University. /s

Actually I’m wondering why there doesn’t appear to be any charring.

The possible explanation I can come up with would be that it was the inner part of a rock that exploded in the atmosphere and managed to survive till its speed was slow enough that it wouldn’t cook.

I believe the center is about 238 degrees below zero, and the outer surface simply gets heated and blows off (ablading ?) thereby leaving the greater body still intact quite cool.

Rather appropriate for this story, don't you think?
