A Bosnian man who claims he is being targeted by extraterrestrials after a series of meteorite strikes on his house has now been hit by a sixth space rock in the space of a few years.
Radivoje Lajic first came to international attention in 2008, shortly after the fifth meteorite had crashed into the roof of his house in the northern village of Gornji Lajici.
And now, within the past month, another rock has hit the roof of his house, in defiance of all the odds – making it six strikes since the plague of meteorites began in 2007.
Experts at Belgrade University have confirmed that all the falling rocks he has handed over were meteorites. They are now trying to work out what exactly it is about his house that particularly attracts them. The strikes always happen when it is raining heavily, he says, never when there are clear skies.
Lajic has his own explanation, of course. After the fifth rock struck his house, he said: ‘I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials. I don’t know what I have done to annoy them but there is no other explanation that makes sense. The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit six times has to be deliberate.’
50-year-old Lajic has had a steel girder reinforced roof put on the house to protect it from the alien bombardment – which he funded by selling one of the meteorites to a university in the Netherlands.
‘I have no doubt I am being targeted by aliens,’ he adds. ‘They are playing games with me. I don’t know why they are doing this. When it rains I can’t sleep for worrying about another strike.’
This is one of the strangest stories. Eric ( July 27, 2010 ) has a great humorous response:
Clearly Mr. Lajic knows more than he is letting on. He’s probably hiding something that the aliens want. One might ask, why would the aliens shoot meteorites at Mr. Lajic when they could simply slip into the Bosnian skies and suck Mr. Lajic from his dwelling in the dark of night? Well the answer to that question is more evidence that Mr. Lajic knows more than he is letting on. It’s likely that Radivoje Lajic has access to defenses of his own, possibly with the help of some sort of secret government agency or even a rival alien force as protection which keeps the alien overloads at bay and leaves them shooting meteorites at Mr. Lajic from thousands of miles away. Whatever the reason, the answer is clear… Radivoje Lajic must go.
I ask you Radivoje Lajic… don’t you want to do the right thing? Don’t you want to save earth and all it’s inhabitants? Turn yourself over and you will go down in history as the man who saved earth from obliteration.
As far as I can tell, Mr. Lajic’s house has not been hit for years, but after six hits with smaller samples, they may now be steering a big one at him and that takes time.
