I agree that some people are burned by the cold. But after reading many first hand reports I think that the ?cold enough to burn? meteorites are those that are found ON the ground. The ?too hot to touch? meteorites are the ones that have punched through something. I can?t prove it, but my theory fits the scores of reports that I have read.

People that have unknowingly picked up a piece of dry ice with their bare hands have sworn that it is burnt their fingers.
