Man whose house was hit by five meteors believes he is targeted by aliens

The Belgrade home of Radivoje Lajic has been hit by meteorites five times since last November. He has concluded that he's being harassed by extraterrestrials.
He said: "I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials. I don't know what I have done to annoy them but there is no other explanation that makes sense. The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit five times has to be deliberate."

The first meteorite fell on his house in November last year and since then a further four have smashed into his home. The strikes always happen when it is raining heavily, never when there are clear skies.

He said: "I did not know what the strange-looking stones were at first but I have since had them all confirmed as meteorites by experts at Belgrade University.

  1. Hey Sven it’s raining! Let’s go throw some more rocks at that bastard Radivoje’s house!

  2. well one thing is right , miracles are interaction and communication , lows/laws o’ nature, can’t be coincidence.

    Well maybe he prayed or payed a psychic to get rich.
    it’s some kind o’ an answer ,prboably best so he won’t get conisdered greedy.

    sell stones to uni. ..

  3. 5 unrelated meteorite hits are not a simple coincidence: it’s an hoax!

    #1: Sven is not really a Serbian name, sometime I have used, and heard, Boris as the typical Serb; I don’t know if it is widespread.

  4. #3: Finding a proper Serbian name was not really crucial to the understanding of the two line joke. Which, although implies that this story is the result of a hoax, it is always good to have someone like you point it out to those that may not get the joke.

  5. I guess it takes a week or so for a story like this to make its way to the English-speaking world…

  6. Hmm..

    House hit once… Meteroite fragments into five pieces. Piece one found immediately. Pieces 2-4 only found during heavy rain when a leak becomes apparent?

    The only other option, really, is that the rocks were mis-identified as meteorites.

  7. There was a case in the Old West (or it might just have been a ‘Death Valley Days’ episode) where an old lady’s front porch was destroyed by meteorites. She went to court to sue God (via the church) for the damage, as she felt that she hadn’t done anything wrong for God to be justified in taking his wrath out on her. I can’t remember if she won or lost.

  8. Well, maybe next time extraterrestrials come trick-or-treating, Radivoje will get a clue and pony up some candy.

  9. I don’t know, what are the odds of one house getting hit by meteorites 5 times? The guy may have a point. The question is, what did he do to piss the aliens off?

  10. I don’t know if it has any relevance to the ETs, but the guys house is in a village in Bosnia, not Belgrade.

  11. It probably isn’t extraterrestrials sending the meteorites. I think it’s most likely he has angered Zeus in some way. As we all know, Zeus is easy to irritate, so it might be something as simple as providing the wrong sacrifice or burnt offering.

  12. Just because the odds against it are astronomical, doesn’t mean it can’t happen. The infamous “odds that life on earth evolved are 1 in 10-to-the 32-power” claim, for example– a 1 with 32 zeros after it sure seems like a huge number, but it’s still tiny when compared to infinity.

  13. Sure, five times seems unlikely, but there are over 6 billion people on the planet. One in a million chances happen 6 thousand times.

  14. i have this mental image of him throwing a single fallen meteor back into the sky and being surprised by its return.

  15. I like Ivan256’s theory: one meteor strike, multiple fragments found on separate occasions. Radivoje Lajic associates meteor strikes with heavy rains (lightning and thunder?), so that’s when he looks for evidence — and holes in the roof.
