A COFFIN maker in Indonesia became an instant millionaire - when a $1.8million lump of space rock crashed through his roof.

Hmm. a COFFIN maker .. is that any different from your run-of-the-mill lowercase coffin maker?

What, Dave Brock wasn't available?

Police who initially investigated this incident reported two people dead at the scene.

Good thing it missed the $1,200,000 euro pigeon

So you find a cool rock, strap it to your drone, drop it over your roof, call J. Collins, and offer to split the proceeds if he certifies it. A lot better than bribing college folks to get accepted, just donate a new wing with some of the proceeds, and Bingo, you're a legacy.

Wow, I have several rocks that look sort of like that one. Wonder if I could get a million or three for them?

Cue Sinatra: Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven ... 180 million pennies from heaven.
