So a meteorite may have killed some poor schmuck in India.  According to this report people in India might not have much, but they do have meteor insurance.

Jayalalithaa Jayaram, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, has said a bus driver at a college in her state was killed by the meteorite and awarded 100,000 rupees ($1,470) in compensation to his family.

I like how they say “awarded” as if he won a valuable prize.  He got hit by a meteor.  Unless he had just broken up with his girlfriend and she was all: “you’ll be back!” and he was all: “I will get hit by a meteor before I come back you you!  You made out with Reggie and I never TOUCHED Sandra!” (which would have meant he was hit instantly for lying because he totally hooked up with Sandra) then the odds of this happening are pretty low.

Winning the Powerball in the US is easier than getting hit by a meteor and MUCH more lucrative.  And usually the people who win are not worth much more than 100,000 rupees.   I wonder if that amount of money is a lot or a little in India.  I have to assume a lot because whenever they show pics of places there that aren’t the Taj Mahal all the roads are dirt. I would expect paved roads would bump up your value. As would throwing a couple extra cars on every train in your country, INDIA!

So, to recap, in India, there are so many people that if a meteorite lands it might hit someone.  One DID hit someone. The life of a bus driver in India is worth than $1500.00 despite having the most unlikely cause of death possible (well, second after: eaten by Vishnu).  I don’t want to live in India.  I just remembered all the episodes of The Amazing Race where they went to India.  I don’t want to visit India.  It is more likely that I win The Amazing Race despite having never applied to be on it than there is of me getting hit by a meteorite.

And they should check that sad bastard’s pockets for lottery tickets.
