That movie scared the bejeebers out of me when I was a kid!

Me too! Odly though, even after all the mayhem and havoc that mischievous  blob caused, I felt sad for the poor thing when they dropped it from the helicopter to sink to an icy doom in the Arctic Ocean. I wonder if watching that movie as a kid was how my fascination with space rocks started...🤔

When I saw that movie with that scene I thought it was the funniest thing as it snatched his hand and he thought it was a good idea to try and remove it with his other hand.

As a movie it was O.K. but not scary.

The golden age of cinema, Calitki a spin-off I think 1959 a good decade for blobs. ”Horrors of the Black museum “ I think I was 5 when I saw that at the drive-in and I’m still uncomfortable using binoculars.

The movie theater scene was filmed 15 minutes from my home in a town called Phoenixville, PA. One of my school teachers was an extra in that scene.

The Creepshow short about Jordy Veryl (played by Stephen King), a country gentleman who discovers a meteor and proceeds to contaminate himself with “Meteor sh(bleep)” was a newer classic. You will have to google it for the more funny parts that happen after this first scene,  the title is not postable here...

      Some scientists now think there are the building blocks for life in meteorites.  One block is protein.

      I was bumming around Las Vegas today and wandered into the Gold and Silver pawn shop for a look around as the parking lot was open and there was no line to get in. Walking through the shop one of the display cases was filled with nature and science objects and a handful of small meteorites and two larger all iron nickel from the Argentina Campo Del Cielo meteor impact. They were asking $25 for the small ones that were between a nickel and quarter in diameter and $250 each for the large ones. I grabbed one of the large one and asked for a discount and after checking they would sell it for 20% less making it $200 I’m sure I could have bargained more but didn’t care to, the one in my hand weighed 368 grams and had some nice character so I wrapped it up and took it home.  This is a very common meteorite as they go but seemed a fair price at around 1/2 the asking price for most of the similar examples on eBay and although not a bargain I suppose, but if you are in the area and looking for one of these (in a shop) $25 for a small meteorite doesn’t seem to far out of line?

      Does anyone have any tips for locating  Location to hunt meteorites in West Texas with Metal Detector

      do meteorites just land anywhere on the planet? or do they typically land in specific areas?
      For instance would Atlanta, Georgia USA have meteorites on the ground somewhere?

      Perhaps not enough information, but how does it look to you?
      It's about 15mm in size.
      Thanks in advance
