Man Whose House Was Hit by Five Meteorites Believes That Aliens Are Targeting Him

"I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials. I don't know what I have done to annoy them but there is no other explanation that makes sense. The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit five times has to be deliberate."

He does have a point, there.

Confirmed meteorites or alleged? My first instincts in the latter are: pranksters with a catapult or a big potato gun or something similar, or in the case of rough weather a tornado picked up the rocks and they were deposited there :the latter being the least likely, but aliens tossing rocks on his house? ..sure, it's possible, but without far better evidence it's quite improbable.

Rock Roll'd!

I'm not sure aliens would bother bothering with us. Pelting some random guy's house is like throwing rocks at a hive of bees, no good will come of it. I'm sure they've scouted our planet out, this is assuming there are aliens, which I am not convinced there is any possiblity for them, but on the small off chance that there are, their scouts surely have watched our media. They are bound to have watched at least Independance Day, in which we kick some serious "A," as we do in all alien attack movies. It's safe to assume they would know that they don't stand a chance against us!

I think the Contact's "nuking an ant hill in Africa" analogy is more apt, DrJones. We could destroy it without them ever seeing it coming, and we wouldn't even feel bad about it.

Tempscire, I'm afraid I am lost on your reference :( If you're talking about the '97 Jodie Foster flick, I don't remember that in the movie. If it is some other reference, I am quite lost!

I have to agree with Scotchdrnkr on this one. Hard to argue with money (or something readily exchanged for it) falling from the sky, and looks like he has some free advertising to boot!

Read it again. He said one hit an August and then another hit a year later. Besides, the meteorites would spread out. They wouldn't all hit one small target. This sounds like a hoax anyways.

Hey I come from Serbia, and follow main news sources from that country daily, but I haven't seen any such news even on the more trashy tabloids there.

I saw the original post on BoingBoing and I see that the cited source is ananova.com

This web site has been source of other such exciting news supposedly from my country such as:

Serbs line up for testicle shocks
http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_1605282.html?menu=news.quirkies

Ananova - Frogs rain down on Serbia
http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_1421070.html

Man needed surgery after sex with hedgehog
http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_1996710.html?menu=news.quirkies

Of course none of them was ever seen in any Serbian news source. I heavily suspect a hoax.
