    heard this on the News yesterday, I always think one of these close calls may one day bring a virus\disease close enough to our atmosphere that we'll orbit\drift into it and suffer an outbreak a few weeks after the event.

    Paranoia? :jump:

    The thing is, if it ever was to hit close we'd be all wiped out in seconds, so who cares? If it hits in Australia and doesn't affect me...who cares? :)

    Down side: my entire family is wiped out.

    Up side: imagine how much I will save on postage when I don't have to send presents/cards to my entire family on the other side of the world any more!

    Positive thinking...I like it! I wonder if I could get away with it hitting Leeds, but not affecting Huddersfield :p

    You must live near me then, five hits so far, caught three due to cameras, two were prior to them being fitted.

    Drivers door and rear door again. Probably a supermarket car park...the problem is I don't see these things until the weekend because the wife uses it through the week and she obviously doesn't look at the car as much as me. The second time now shes been totally oblivious to the damage!

    Not covered under act of god, but the meteor itself will be worth a small fortune so you will be quids in.

    What a mad day hey!!

    Saw the Russian meteor pass on the news this morning, incomprehendable!!

    Just couldnt imagine it, reminded me of the Brum Tornado a few years ago.
