Skip to comments.Man hit by six meteorites is being 'targeted by aliens'

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.'
Both have a hard time sleeping at night.
Well, who is throwing rocks?
Suppose we could get the target switched to the White House?
Ok so someone in the hills is shooting meteor rocks on his house with a sling. Only in Bosnia.
This guy may have a point ... He does seem to be well ahead of the statistical norm for getting beaned with a meterior. Wonder what he did to torque ET off?
If was this guy I would get some underwear that locks.
If it’s a guy with a sling, he’s apparently not aware that he’s throwing money.
Some of those rocks pay pretty well.
“Some of those rocks pay pretty well.”
A “hammer” is a meteorite that has struck something manmade. With evidence, even a small hammer is worth much more than an identical rock that hit nothing but dirt.
And then there are those that hit people..investment grade rocks from space.
Hmmmmmmm is he a mohammeden?
I don’t believe for a second that his house has been hit several times over a period of years. It’s pure blarney.
I wouldn’t be worried about meteorites.
It’s that Anal Probe thing that I’d be losing sleep over.
Hey, it wasn’t me!!
I like your idea of switching the target but the *aliens* and I are not on speaking terms....especially if they’re illegal.
Clearly the aliens are not after the man - but his roof.
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
Absolutely correct. A large house is about 10^13 times smaller than the presented surface of the Earth. This means the probaility that 6 or 7 of these would fall on the same house is in the neighborhood of 10^-80!!!! This is an incomprehensibly small probability and flat out impossible!
“Clearly the aliens are not after the man - but his roof.”
Maybe he should take that sign off the top of his house that says “The aliens are a bunch of wienies.”
Once is an accident. Twice is a coincidence. Three times is enemy action.
That’s the second reference from the Jerk someone has made to me in a week. I’m getting a little freaked out.
It doesn't matter what you did, they get pissed off real easy.....I'd start figuring out a way to get even.
This kind of reminds me of that famous “bomb magnet” woman in Lebanon whose house at three separate locations was supposedly bombed by Israeli jets.
Oh those advance long range weapons.
I got hit by 5 meteors and, being unemployed, I set up a “see the bruises I got from the rocks” kiosk at the mall.
It’s become a local roadside attraction and pays the rent, room and board.
Should have kept the meteors, though.
Did you guys read the comments after the article! Very funny!
