Needle In A Haystack: Skydiver Almost Hit By Meteorite

April 3, 2014


This is a video of a skydiver who, after deploying his chute, nearly gets hit by a meteorite. Allegedly it's the first time a meteorite has been filmed after its stopped glowing. Is that true? No clue. I'm still not convinced it's not a piece of the plane that broke off.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to The Royal Angel Queen, who sounds like she fell from the heavens herself.

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    It would have been cool if it had flown right into his arms, like a tossed football, and he caught it, then after landing hold it up and said, "Hey, look what I got!"

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    Maybe it was a rock used as a doorstop to keep the door of the plane open while jumpers were queuing up to jump.

    (I wasn't being serious)

    yep, thats a regular rock that got packed into his parachute when the probably stoned..parachute...packing....guy....err..when that guy who's job title I don't know dropped his and stuffed it back in the bag hoping nothing got tangled. A miracle happened the chute worked and only this funny video to show for it instead of splattery death

    that would have been a cool way to die though

  • ShartInYourJacuzzi

    Pfft. "Almost," fucking *YAWN*

  • Someone really liked Gravity

  • Shh Private

    The odds of that being a meteoroid are astronomical. Astronomical... Astronomical... Hello?... Is this thing on? Hello?...

  • Taylor Eisman

    It looks too jagged to be real, the meteorite should have a more conical shape.

    Thank you 21st century cynicism...

    I wonder what happened to Daisy...

  • asdfadfs

    she got married to that fellow with a tandem bike and they rode off into the sunset.
    It was like that scene in Never Back Down where Max and Baja crashed a wedding and Baja caught the bouquet, but then Max couldn't afford a limo for the ceremony and Baja's train ended up getting tangled in the wheels of her longboard. (though it all worked out in the end. And the shadows were all right happily ever after)

    Thanks, I laughed.

  • Grob

    i don't buy it

    Why is it so hard for you to comprehend what you are witnessing in this video clip? Is it really that far-fetched? Not everyone is trying to trick you with fake videos.

    Maybe a very strong person tossed that sucker up in the stratosphere. In the video the stone is on its return trip down towards planet earth. Did you ever stop to consider the possibility and reflect on that?

    Andrew Newton has put up some statements in this discussion. He has some pretty favorable information behind this "scary and elusive" meteorite epidemic we seem to be facing nowadays. Its best to take notes. That way we will stand a better chance of surviving this hell inferno.

  • Grob

    did you ever consider the fact that you're a huge faggot, you scandinavian prick? this guy had his chute deployed and wasn't anywhere near human terminal velocity, so the difference should have been way more than it simply whizzing by

  • Fredrik Pettersen

    Scandinavian prick you say, I resent that. I'm from Burkina Faso. And very proud of it.

    Do you know where you can find this country on a globe? Do you want me to tell you? It is located right between those delicious thighs of... your mama!

  • Grob

    a scandinavian name in a french colony in some african hellhole, yeah i totally buy that

  • Fredrik Pettersen saw right through my lies. I feel so incredibly ashamed, and surprisingly excited by the thought of feeling up your mother.

    Dont bollshit your self Grob. Admit it, you had not heard of Burkina Faso before I mentioned it. You thought you were going to stand out like a genius after you did your homework on Wikipedia.

  • Joe Ferschke

    That should be flying a hell of a lot faster...right? I mean, it IS a meteor...
