Death by meteorite is a very, very uncommon way to go. Most objects from space disintegrate while entering the Earth's atmosphere. A man in Tamil Nadu, India may be the first person to actually be killed by a falling meteorite in at least 200 years, according to NDTV. Scientists are still analyzing the scrap of material that is believed to be the meteorite for confirmation.  The explosion from the impact also shattered windows in a nearby school building but everyone inside remained unhurt. 



A similar thing happened in Russia in 2013 and it was caught on film. You can see the meteor streaking through the sky on its way to strike a building.

If you're having trouble, the flight attendant's announcement was "The captain cannot take off when we have ice on the wings, and we don't want to die."



Passenger Ella Ryan, posted to Instagram her account of the chaotic travel delays, "This is what happens when you've been delayed almost 8 hours, everyone's at a lost including staff 'we don't want to die' absolute mayhem. All hell was breaking loose when a member of staff made this outrageous announcement."



She also revealed passengers were "continuously receiving inconsistent reasons for the delay" and were only given a £3.50 ($7.20) voucher. You'd think after 8 hours they'd get a full refund.



The discount airline Ryanair responded with only a statement of, "We will be speaking to the crew member involved and apologize for the regrettable comment she made in the heat of the moment".

Spock (the terror) is a big cat. Big enough that his neighbors mistake him for a bobcat walking past their windows.

You'd think after one scare by this giant adorable fluffball, they'd remember that they have a feline friend for a neighbor.

Sue Stenhouse was, until recently, a public servant in charge of Senior Enrichment in Cranston, Rhode Island. When a program began for teens to shovel snow for elderly folks she decided to celebrate the arrangement in a press conference. Apparently, she thought it needed more diversity. Rather than ask an actual elderly woman to stop by and be part of the assembly, she asked a middle-aged, male bus driver to do some character acting.





No one can seem to pry out a reason from her for the deception but she has since resigned. Disappointingly, it seems like no one has tried to interview the bus driver either.
