Midge,

Not true.
He raised the prices of life saving drugs that directly affected those needing them.
"While he was head of Turing Pharmaceuticals, Shkreli notoriously raised the price of the life-saving drug Daraprim, an antiparasitic medication commonly used by AIDS patients and others with suppressed immune systems, from $13.50 per pill to $750."
Do your research Midge. Otherwise he gets a free pass from people like you.

Daisy,

He didn't technically scam the people that he chose to let die by being a greedy bastard. Raising the price was (unfortunately) technically legal.... I'm not defending him in any way just pointing that out.

Barringer crater

by just a bit though. If you consider how long it flew to get there, it was a pretty good shot/accuracy

Loren, the visitor center must have been covered with a lot of dust after impact. What a mess to clean up!

#6 Does anyone know who these people are? I spent some time googling and could only find the two women on the top row (Elizabeth Holmes & Anna Sorokin.) I've never seen any of them before, and I' m curious to know what they did. It's, um... well, it's fascinating...

He does kinda-almost-slightly resemble Tolkien, but that's a weird looking hobbit....
Anyway, I gave you an upvote because hobbits. :D

#27 The meteorite that created this crater has been estimated to have been 160 feet across, (50 m) and traveling at 29,000 mph. (12.8 kilometers per second) It's on private land.

#3 They actually paid Grateful Dead? I thought those guys were lost and just wandered in because they smelled weed. Why would anyone pay those hacks?

Demerias,

Because they draw a crowd. Oh, and also because they're good musicians.

I'm sure your taste in music is real swell. I'd bet your favorites are Taylor Sniffed, Lady Googoo, and Billie Eyelash. Maybe you throw in a bit of Lil' Gansta-Bong pXq so you look cool in front of your homo-ies.

Outdated just like your music taste. This is coming from someone who is over 40 and no I don't have any idea who those people are you comment on.
