I prefer the old days when one would say "mein Hund aß meine Hausarbeit!"
Kids these days just don't seem to have the intelligence to come up with believable stories to get out of school.
I want to know who was holding the radar detector to see how fast it was going.
Is it weird that I want to see photos? (of hand and crater)
I would also like to see photos, but we are strong, no one can tell us we're wrong.
Not weird at all
It's not that hard for a scientist to figure out, with knowing how far above Earth the atmosphere "starts", combined with the fact that, following entering the atmosphere, the velocity of an object increases at the same rate each second until another force interrupts it (ie: impact with the ground). Air resistance can play a part, but on an object that passes through the entire atmosphere it's final velocity will be that dramatic that said resistance will have basically nil effect on the object.
At least that's my understanding from two years of studying physics
Pics or it didn't happen.
Joins a select club who's membership is 2.
The other being...... ???
If it was you, that would explain a lot.
This kid had the best one ever.
Haha zing !
Damn that is pretty cool .
Hey, hey, hey! I thought we weren't supposed it insult each other.
The other is Ann Hodges.
So it bounced off his hand but embedded itself in the road? hmmm
"It bounced off his hand before embedding itself in a foot-wide crater in the ground."
If it was carrying enough energy to create a foot wide crater in concrete, then it was carrying MORE than enough energy to create a foot wide crater in his hand.
Sorry - I call bull****.
Hmmm, my 1st though, too.
Years ago, I read an article in Life Magazine, a huge deal in those days, about a women who was hit my a meteorite. It came down through the windshield of her car and hit her in the thigh. High in the thigh. There was a photo of a huge bruise on her very fat leg with her dress pulled up. Not an attractive sight.
Later, I went off to college and found that this woman was the mother of one of my room mates!
Windshields are very strong, so it would have been a serious matter if it had just come down unblocked. The German kid would have a hole in his hand and all sorts of bone and ligament damage, like being shot.
