National Academy of Sciences making up crazy shit : up to 100 people a year killed by space rocks

Getting hit by a freaking SPACE. ROCK. is almost as deadly as standing out in a lightning storm waving around metal rods...I'm sure this is "peer reviewed" science, so it must be true, right?

The 134-page report, released Friday by the National Academy of Sciences...

...According to the report, current long-term projections estimate that there could be up to 100 fatalities a year caused by space rock impacts, though admittedly the chances of such rare hits are remote...

All those hikers that mysteriously disappear? Space Rocks. All those unsolved murders where some dude just got a big hole blasted through their head? Space Rocks. All those people who come down from Ferris Wheel rides exsanguinated with their chests cored out? Space Rocks.
