Why do you live on a planet that's under frequent asteroid bombardment? Because no one else wants it, and you wanted to decamp from your previous place of residence quickly and would accept any planet as long as it was available.
At least the people who currently have your planet under interdiction are taking care of the rocks now!
I have little to say today, except I'm kind of fond of Emory's dialogue here which was based on a suggestion I made. It works for me because Emory is a nerd and nerds live for making pointless nitpicking corrections. Speaking as a member of the Nerd-American Community, look, it's true, guys.
Other than that all I have for you is this crazy video of a huge meteor seen entering the atmosphere near Edmonton, Canada a few days ago.
