    Is there such a thing as meteorite insurance? And if so, do the insurance companies try and con people by also selling meteor insurance?

    That, or maybe a Transformer with immense strength on Cybertron threw that meteorite with so much anger, he'd never expect it to hit some guy's house on Earth. :p

    It's nice that they get to keep the Meteorite. It'll be a nice memento of the permanent skylight that it installed, and how there's no way they'll ever get insurance money.
