The most interesting part of this story is NOT that the boy was struck by a meteorite and survived, note this paragraph:
The last time there was a confirmed strike on a human was in 1954, when Ann Hodges, an Alabama housewife got smacked in the hip by a ricocheting space rock. Sadly, Hodges, a renter, got sued by her landlady for possession of the meteor. The famous rock was considered very valuable, and was anticipated to fetch $20,000 at auction, which would equate to several hundred thousand dollars today.I've always wonder the difference between a townhouse and a "townhouse-style" condo. When you own a house, you own the land, the most valuable asset in the bay area. When you own a condo, you don't own the land, you only the "space" above the land. So think about it, if your house is struck and completely destroyed by a meteorite, your ownership of the meteorite ceases when it hits the ground! Better think twice before purchasing that whatever-style condo!
