    I thought that home invasions by multiple baddies were rare? That you had a greater chance of getting hit by a meteor?


    Heard of any meteor deaths lately?
    Overkill is underrated.

    Another one for the good guys. Sad that any kid would put himself in that position.
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.

    Twice in less than a week too. It appears that the 79 year old also had cat like reflexes.

    I happen to know someone who had a meteor crash into their house - about the size of a large adult male fist. Ended up in the hallway - but even then, nobody was hit by the thing!

    The invader may have been a kid, but there was nothing in the article BC posted to say that. But, I do agree that it's sad for anyone to put himself in that position.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Better off buying a skid of toilet paper to prep for the Pockylpse than train for multiple attackers in the home.....

    I've often thought meteors were somehow 'guided' - how else are they almost always able to land in the middle of craters?

    You really have to be desperate and dumb to brake into someones home while occupied. To enter a occupied
    bedroom is double stupid and a sure cure for drug addiction. Having a dog or two helps!

    A meteorite is a valuable thing!

    Was your call sign "Willys" ?
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.
