Meteorite Fumes Sicken Village

In case you haven't seen this article, it's kind of interesting. Some people thought a meteor landed near their village and large scale sickness and nausea resulted.

The really lovely thing though is one of the quotes where U. Chicago geophysicist Larry Grossman says ""Sometimes these things land hundreds of thousands of miles away from where [people] think they will land."

Given that the circumference of the Earth is only a few tens of thousands of miles, I'm wondering where all these things are landing. 🙂 Then again, maybe the reporter confused "of" with "or".
