4 BILLION-YEAR-OLD METEORITE UNKNOWINGLY USED AS DOORSTOP

FAMILY DISCOVERS DOORSTOP IS 4-BILLION-YEAR-OLD METEORITE


The doorstop on Donna and George Lewis's porch traveled a long way to get there.

The rock, something of a family heirloom, was found in a cow pasture near Tazewell, Tenn, in the 1930s by Donna Lewis's grandfather, the late Tilmon Brooks.

The object of curiosity, which long served as a doorstop, a garden ornament, and even had been painted green, turns out to be a very rare and very real meteorite, possibly 4 ½ billion years old.

It wasn't until George Lewis put a metal detector to the object, and it read off the charts, that the couple realized they this was no ordinary rock.

When the Lewis family brought the object to Jerry Cook, chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Eastern Kentucky University, he suspected it was special.

According to the school's press release, "tests at the University of Tennessee confirmed the object's origins: it was probably part of a known meteorite strike that had first turned up evidence in Tazewell in 1853."



All's well that ends well...

Scorned Husband in Jealous Spray

 photo paintrevenge_zpsbb1bbaa4.jpg

A FURIOUS husband has taken public revenge on his wife's admirer in an unlikely place -- his rival's garage door.
A Reddit user with the screen name igotskraped posted a photo of a garage attached to a house in Illinois, tagged with a very clear message in red spray paint: "Don't e-mail my wife!!!!"
The scorned spouse added on the smaller side entrance: "Stop now".
The images were shared a month ago. There has been no update on this very public love triangle.
