Video: Sky diver almost nailed by meteorite

This reminds AKSARBENT of a San Francisco Chronicle stunt in the 1970s, when the Chron announced on its front page (after it became clear that a Soviet satellite was about to fall out of orbit) that it had purchased an insurance policy covering all its subscribers — and only its subscribers — in the event that the spinning spawn of Sputnik belly-flopped into the Bay Area.
     William Randolph Hearst could not have been prouder.
     Well, actually he could have, since San Francisco's Hearst paper was the Examiner, not the Chronicle.
