"The Rock in the House".

-Fountain City, Wisconsin 

Lady was home and standing on the other side of the chimney in her kitchen when this one rolled through her bedroom, into her bathroom. In 1912, the house next door was struck, killing the occupant.

I think you got the lyrics to "Blue Monday" wrong, Subby.

"'I turned to the right and saw this huge brown mass,' she said. 'I saw this gaping hole"

I didn't know you could make a career out of being a boulder. How much is the pay? What is the benefit package like? Where do I apply?

you do realize that they are using the word 'careers' correctly?

words can have more than one meaning.

Yeah, but she better be making someone breakfast and dinner and bjs for lunch.

Since this is not the first time that a huge ass rock has come crashing into this house you would think that the occupants would get the hint that living right next to a cliff is probably not the best of ideas.

Must have Prudential. This is her 'piece of the rock' to own.

I'm confused. "Careers" is indeed British usage (Americans often fail to appreciate same). But then why doesn't the journalist write "tonnes"?

Maybe the boulder is holding dual citizenship? Maybe it's a trans-Atlantic boulder?

/ Got enraged at a young know-it-all American female college grad one time who changed my "...in the event" to "...in the event of'' because she had never heard the expression, meaning "...when it actually came to pass." She didn't bother to look it up - she simply assumed that if it had been correct she'd have heard of it.

Dumb gringos, so dumb they don't even care how dumb they are. Remember when the network geniuses decided to subtitle Monty Python TV shows, when they were released in the Homeland?

Officials believe that the rock was loosened by the heavy rains that fell in the area on Thursday, making the ground unstable

So the rollin' stone was caused by muddy waters?

This has happened quite a few times in that part of town, the boulders breaking loose. They don't always hit the houses though. My boss has seen this happen 3 times in the 7 years he has lived there .

"Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by the Daily Mail being incompetent."

I'm sure it's pure random chance that it ended up that way.

A career as a professional boukder? It's kind of a rocky path from the top, and, if you're not careful, things can go downhill pretty quickly. Responsibilities are heavy, prospects are solid. There are three main tracks within the profession, as any good geologist will tell you: metaphorical, ignorant, and sedentary.

missing a propane tank by just inches

If your house runs on propane, they don't put the tanks inside the house do they? That just sounds like a bad idea.

I think she should (re)read her insurance companies product disclosure statement and seriously reconsider whether she wants to continue being a customer

i suspect the boulder was jostled by grandma moving her massive necklace collection about while cleaning same. caused a shift in the earths crust, the rest is history.

It seems to be an American thing to use careen in place of career - the misusage is so prevalent that it is no longer considered incorrect. But Career is used here, mainly by obnoxious wordy people.
