Falling to Cambodia

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Yes, it's true. It's the end of the world as we know it but we feel fine.

Such is not so for the people of Hnom Penh, Cambodia -- who witnesssed, and barely avoided, a 10 pound meteorite that crashed down today in the northwestern area of the country, narrowly avoiding a populated town and striking the fear of the unknown into local authorities.

The rock, which slammed down into the ground with such force that it had to be exhumed by local scientists, is just one of many examples that (yes), Armageddon is probably already happening and we don't realize it. Or, possibly, that we have let our World get so messed up from an environmental stance that there is no turning back from this point forward.
