I was getting ready to go meteorite hunting today and I just had to put my boots on. I had two rare earth magnets and put one in each back pocket so they wouldn’t stick together. I have this nice felt lined red box with a handle and a metal clasp that I carry some of my meteorites in so I can show them to landowners and teach them what to look for. I grabbed the red box and headed for the garage. As I turned around the doorway one of the magnets in my pocket stuck to the clasp on the box and as I moved, the box opened and a 1kg Canon Diablo fell on my toe. It hurt like $%!+, but I still went out hunting. Would this be considered an impact event?

    …….start in Blue Ball and go through Intercourse you find Paradise but put a strong earth magnet in your pocket and you’re lucky it is only your toe that got bruised

    They don’t call them Diablos for nuthin.
