In fact, don't even look at it...

I heard that meteors made of oldamite come from the onion belt.

Huh. Cool. I do meteorite research and pre-solar grains are really, really cool. They're also a massive pain to analyze because they're super tiny.

I'm pretty amazed that they were able/willing to track it and find where it hit.

Expecting correct headlines? Don't hold your breathe. You might loose your life.

Don't even dare breathe on the protective glass unless you want me to whip your honkey ass.

I can only imagine what that tracking job looked like.

This is old dynamite. It is really old. Don't touch it. In fact, don't even breathe on it. If you breathe on it, it disappears.

That's why we grind them up and bake them into tasty fresh pre-solar muffins. Much easier to work with.

We make post-lunar waffles, too. Great with fried giant hyper-chicken.

With the sweating that dynamite is doing, breathe on it and you'd disappear.

No kidding, I'd have been nervous that the camera flash would have set it off. That stuff has a bad attitude, and will indiscriminately ruin your day.
