“any residents hoping to cash in have been warned that the rock is owned by the state even if it lands on their property”

Another black market meteor just became available.

With all the cameras out there, we are starting to see one of these every month or so. Security cameras, dashboard cameras, etc. There even was that one a month or so back with multiple captures.

So tell me, why no UFO shots?

The meteor has still not been found, although any residents hoping to cash in have been warned that the rock is owned by the state even if it lands on their property.

I would agree if it landed on state property, but if it landed on my property the state and I would have some issues. Meteorites are worth good money.

Because they are disguised as meteors. :-)

A couple of years back some cops in Illinois tried to pull a “rope-a-dope” on an old lady who had a smallish meteorite smash through her roof. She was scared to death and called the cops. They came over and did the whole “oh, this is very scary, we need to remove this “dangerous” item and take it away for special examination. Oh course she was soooo happy to have the nice policemen take that scary rock, (Thank you Mr. police man, thank you thank you) until a relative informed her it would be worth thousands of dollars!!! From what I understand it took a good bit of time and some help from a lawyer to get the cops to “cough up” the rock. Kind of reminds me when old ladies turn in their dead husbands Lugers during “safe street Bull-$&it” programs. How many of those Lugers do you think actually get melted down? Hmmmm?

LOL. If you click on the UK link to watch the video, scroll down and look at the ad on right hand side for the World-Vision “Give a goat” program.

Sure was a lot easier when everyone swallowed Aristotle hook line and sinker -- "stones cannot fall from the sky". ;') Thanks KoRn! I wonder what touch-hole put "communism" and "nationalization" into the keywords?
