Object from space crashes in Peru

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Strange things afoot in the remote Peruvian town of Carancas, where hundreds of people have been taken sick after an object from space crashed to Earth at the weekend. The resulting crater has been spewing out some kind of fetid gas, and locals who flocked to see it have been taken ill with headaches, vomiting and nausea.

Could this be the beginning of the end? Are we finally under chemical attack from extraterrestrials hell-bent on wiping us off the face of the planet? Scientists think not. It seems the most likely explanation is a meteorite which on contact with the ground has caused a chemical reaction giving off toxins such as sulphur and arsenic.

So nothing to get concerned about then. It's when the red weed starts spreading over the crater that I'm going to start worrying...
