Thanks to all that responded and gave me some great tips about
multiple falls and the probability that a meteorite will break up
on impact. As for "nanosecond" Bernd...he's up to his ears into
swinging a hammer (remodeling his home) and has no nanoseconds left.
(Someone said he could answer this in a nanosecond.) :-)) :-))
BTW I'm just kidding, I DO understand Bernd, I have renatl property.
Looking fwd to maybe hearing from you later when you get caught up.
Thanks again to all, I'm learning,
