"Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's A plane! Oh crap, it's space junk hitting my car!" This has been a fictionalized reenactment of one miss Leah's car getting thwacked with what was apparently a meteorite. We're thinking of calling up our physics major friends, the ones who are mostly unemployed now, and asking them to calculate what the odds are of a moving car being struck by a meteorite. We're betting it's low. BoingBoing ran a post earlier today recounting the tale of the interstellar insurance nightmare and the disbelief is still planted firmly on our faces.

That doesn't have the appearance of something that has just plunged through the atmosphere. I'm calling shenanigans on this one. Probably was a piece of tailpipe that was thrown up by another car and hit theirs.
I was hit my a truck mudflap once, thrown up by a Postal Service truck. Took out the headlight and the car had long scratches on the windscreen for ever after.
