    That's what they get for having a escalator manufacturer build their space stations.

    Pieces hit Chicago and Detroit, and main body takes a right at Michigan and  smacks the Capitol Building in D.C. and makes a direct hit on the Left side of the aisle. (My prediction MAY be skewed a bit with hating Washington, D.C in general, and the Capitol Building in particular. Sayin'.)

    Does it get written up as comp or “collision”?

    I guess they insurance company has to technically go after the country that owns it, so it might actually be the latter.

    Maybe a hunk will break off and do that for ya. Just avoid the I-80 until that Chinese junk has crash landed! :smiley:

    Not making a guess as to impact area, but if it hits Detroit, it's estimated to make millions of dollars of improvements! 😎
