"Mohammed Ali", is that my hero Mohammed Ali? The one that floats like a
butterfly and stings like a bee? I love that man!

Thanks, Tom

> Hola List,
> I just got an email from Mohammed Ali, who is apparently a lurker on the
Met-list. He said no one knows what they are talking about and maybe we
should listen to him since he was there.
> What really happened was that Snoopy was doing an aerial battle with the
Red Baron von Humboldt at the time of the Nakhla fireball. Snoopy then shot
down the Red Baron, who was carrying a cargo of desert achondrites from a
strewn filed he had scavanged, as the Germans had discovered it was
achondrites were the secret materials needed for armoring their tanks. As
the Baron desperately tried to avoid crashing he had to bail out his
achondrites, one of which actually fell on the dog in mid flight at the
right moment, covering Snoopy in ashes it had picked up in the smoking trail
of the Baron's biplane as it was downed.
> The Baron actually survived the crash, as Snoopy did the mishap as well,
to fight another day. Mohammed Ali cautions that we should read the
description carefully, and that by "leaving it like ashes" he is talking
about has absolutely nothing to do with the dog, but the stone itself, which
was blown to bits.
> Mohammed Ali also mentioned to me that he prayed during the event that a
rock might fall on his mother-in-law, too, and sure enough his prayers were
answered. Furthermore, the dog he talked about to the newspaper people who
always get everything wrong, was really a reference to his mother-in-law,
and that Charlie Brown happened to have a camera handy while he was calling
Snoopy to give him a doggy dish, because Chuck wanted to impress the little
red-haired girl about his expeditions. So really there was a second
biological impact.
> The picture of the impact with his mother-in-law, the dog, is posted at:

> P.S. The main mass of all the Lunars is the Moon. The biggest know piece
of a meteorite is not the main mass. It's the biggest piece. What's wrong
with just having the "biggest piece"? Works for me, at least... Soon, the
USA will claim the Moon, by the way. That's actuially good news, because
then everyone on the Moonbase will be able to mail all the rocks they want
back to the USA for the domestic rate, that is what, a couple of bucks a
pound these days?
> PPS, this not only clears up the dog deal with Nakhla, but also explains
the relative scarcity of achondrites in the desert, which are cooked to
perfection. They are all there waiting to be found in fields strewn with
rusting hulks of vintage then state-of-the-art German War tanks.
> Mohammed Ali Effendi Hakim kindly informed:
> "The fearful column which appeared in the sky at Denshal was
substantial. The terrific noise it emitted was an explosion that made it
erupt several fragments of volcanic materials. These curious fragments,
falling to earth buried themselves into the sand to a depth of about one
metre. One of them fell on a dog at Denshal, leaving it like ashes in the
