the luck of the daily draw

... a story today in the news, said that astronauts
claim that it is pure luck that an asteroid hasn't
destroyed a city, by exploding overhead

... the number of these asteroid hits is far
greater than the public is lead to believe

... the last one, exploded over a small Siberian
City a few years ago, with the explosive force of a
few Hiroshima sized bombs

... I guess the rock and metal heat up so fast on
entering the earth's atmosphere, that it just explodes
with plasma like forces

... the article says we get hit all the time, but
luckily, they have been in isolated areas of the earth

... if it occurred over a mega-city, it would be
mind-bogglingly catastrophic

... of course, rocks hurled in from outer space
are definitely considered Acts of God,
so whatever happens is meant to be

... how can it be any other way?
