German Kid Beamed By a Meteorite





Ever wonder how it feels to be hit by a pea-sized meteorite traveling 30,000 miles per hour? Now there's one person on earth who knows. Fourteen-year-old Gerrit Blank was walking to school in Essen, Germany, when a "ball of light" struck his hand--then created a (get this) FOOT-WIDE crater in the ground.

Gerrit is now being studied by scientists who believe he may soon begin to exhibit super-human powers. JK.

Read more here.

(Many thanks to Big K and S for sending me this story!)

I don't need meteorites; I was born with enhanced abilities. (That's what the people in my secret group of teens with superpowers call it, 'cause superpowers is so cliche.)

Thats is soo strange...
hes lucky it didnt land on his head.

Anyways, my friend went to NYC and saw the SAD PANDA, and she took a picture of him.
and
Remember that one post about Miss Porter's School and Tatum Bass. (the one where a girl is suing for being bullied by an "all girl torture squad")
There is a 6 pg Vanity Fair article on her. The July 2009 issue. I didn't have the chance to read it but i will.
