A Smashing Touchdown

A common theme in movies is a meteorite or asteroid streaking down from the skies and blowing up a sizeable portion of the earth then causing a catastrophe wiping out a significant fraction of humanity if not its entirety.

No tsunamis, earthquakes or gigantic explosions in this one though. If a featured AFP news yesterday is true however, a meteorite, which crashed somewhere in southern Peru, afflicted villagers with a mysterious illness. The said villagers reported “headaches and vomiting brought on by a ‘strange odor,'” according to the report.

A more recent AP article reports however that experts did confirm the crash but are still investigating the claims on the “illness” the crash caused.

Wait a minute! Didn’t venom originate from a meteorite from outer space as well?! 😛
