Well, the Earth is three quarters water so the odds are that it will. But that also means that one quarter is not water. It is the Big Sky, Little Bullet theory. No have no record of anyone being hit by space junk but we have records of people being hit by meteors so it is possible.
The Space Shuttle Challenger came down over water but Columbia came down most over Texas.
But I am not going to hide in my bathroom much less craw into a sewer as I am sure a few people have tonight.
Actually I had just returned from outside as I might have had a chance to see it if it did reenter.

The True Story of History's Only Known Meteorite Victim
Ann Hodges was hit by a meteorite in her Alabama home in 1954.

The Russian meteorite, whose sonic boom damaged buildings and injured more than a thousand last week, is not the first to shatter a human life.(See pictures: "Meteorite Hits Russia.")

Take the true story of Ann Hodges, the only confirmed person in history to have been hit by a meteorite.

On a clear afternoon in Sylacauga, Alabama (see map), in late November 1954, Ann was napping on her couch, covered by quilts, when a softball-size hunk of black rock broke through the ceiling, bounced off a radio, and hit her in the thigh, leaving a pineapple-shaped bruise.

Ann's story is particularly rare because most meteorites usually fall into the ocean or strike one of Earth's vast, remote places, according to Michael Reynolds, a Florida State College astronomer and author of the book Falling Stars: A Guide to Meteors & Meteorites.

"Think of how many people have lived throughout human history," Reynolds said.

"You have a better chance of getting hit by a tornado and a bolt of lightning and a hurricane all at the same time."

Out of This World

Before the meteorite slammed into Ann's living room, people in tiny Sylacauga and across eastern Alabama had reported seeing "a bright reddish light like a Roman candle trailing smoke," according to the Web publication "The Day the Meteorite Fell in Sylacauga," which was produced by the Alabama Museum of Natural History in 2010.

Others saw "a fireball, like a gigantic welding arc," accompanied by tremendous explosions and a brown cloud.(See video: "Predicting Meteorite Impacts.")

A government geologist working in a nearby quarry was called to the scene and determined the object was a meteorite, but not everyone in town was so sure, according to the museum publication. Many thought a plane had crashed—others suspected the Soviets.

So many people flocked to Hodges's house that when her husband, Eugene Hodges, a utility worker, returned home from work, he had to push gawkers off the porch to get inside.

Ann was so overwhelmed by the crowd that she was transferred to a hospital. With Cold War paranoia running high, the Sylacauga police chief confiscated the black rock and turned it over to the Air Force.

After the Air Force confirmed it was a meteorite, the question then was what to do with it. The public demanded the space rock be returned to Ann, and she agreed.

"I feel like the meteorite is mine," she said, according to the museum. "I think God intended it for me. After all, it hit me!"

Simple Country People

But there was a hitch. Ann and Eugene were renters, and their landlady, a recently widowed woman named Birdie Guy, wanted the meteorite for herself.

Guy obtained a lawyer and sued, claiming the rock was hers since it had fallen on her property. The law was actually on her side, but public opinion wasn't.

Guy settled out of court, giving up her claim to the meteorite in exchange for $500. Eugene was convinced the couple could make big money off the rock and turned down a modest offer from the Smithsonian.

But no one bit, and so the Hodges donated the meteorite to the natural history museum in 1956, where it's still on display.(Related: "Meteorites: Best Places to See Them Up Close.")

Ann later suffered a nervous breakdown, and in 1964 she and Eugene separated. She died in 1972 at 52 of kidney failure at a Sylacaugan nursing home.

Eugene suspects the meteorite and frenzy that followed had taken its toll on Ann. He said "she never did recover," according to the museum.

Ann "wasn't a person who sought out the limelight," added museum director Randy Mecredy. "The Hodges were just simple country people, and I really think that all the attention was her downfall."

Why does this trivial crap bother you? There are actually righteous causes out there that don't involve conspiracy theories. They do it right out in the open. And neither side is screaming about it. Doesn't that tell you something?
I don't know, sometimes I expect more than I should.
How about the conspiracy to rob us of our wealth and steal our rights? The one that is occurring in real time, at this very moment. The one that ends America in every way that matters.
Why do we not have candidates running purely on a platform to destroy this legislation along with similar bills and laws? Quit hemorrhaging blood and overwhelming amounts of money in the Middle East. Use most of those funds to help solve our problems here, which are not insurmountable.
It is the absence of these men and women that give away the one party system. The true unity of those we want to think are at odds with each other.
You have a "them and us" attitude. You just have the line drawn in the wrong place. It is the elite vs those who wish to become elite.(their fellow Americans for the most part.) They have a club and you will never be a member, no matter how much you advertise for them.
There are no democratic and republican politicians. They are not loyal to you, me or anyone else. Wedge issues such as abortion or immigration are all that differentiate our politicians. They don't waiver on the mission.
Their jobs (if you pay attention) across party lines... are to make the world safe for business, banking, and cheap labor. Democracy where it is feasible to extend their grasp.
But hey... making sure someone born here with only one American parent doesn't get to be a citizen is time well spent too. Right?

Sorry, loser.

The source of who will be citizens of the US was started APR. 9, 1866, prior to that the states made the citizens of the US. You can forget what happened prior to that date, it is now Constitutional Law.

In Perkins v. Elg it was plainly stated that her parents were citizen of the US, thereof she was a Natural Born Citizen, at birth.

Sorry, Dufus, In Perkins v. Elg it was plainly stated that she was a natural born citizen because she was born in the US per the jus soli doctrine, without regard to the citizenship of her parents.

Furthermore, according to Article 3 Section 1, it is the USSC that is vested with supreme judicial power, not illiterate birfoons. That means the USSC outranks grandiose pathetic delusial little psychotic nobodies who believe in Play Law.

When are you going to get it through you thick head, the Constitution has told you who will be citizens of the US, only those born here and not subject to any foreign power, these are the only people that will be "subject to the jurisdiction, thereof".

Interesting that Kris didn't vote for President Obama considering his political views. He supported the Unite Farm workers, protested the first Gulf and Vietnam Wars
From an nterview in 91
What it is is your standard Kristofferson show. This particular week in early spring, amid the frenzy of national self-congratulation after the Persian Gulf war, he just happens to be playing Orange and San Diego counties, two of California’s more military-saturated areas.
For twenty-five years, Kris Kristofferson has been performing his own music in a surprising mix of appearances at state fairs and trendy urban clubs. Since 1972, when he did his first concert benefitting Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers, every show has included politically progressive songs and commentary, and his many benefits have helped the causes of Native Americans, human rights, peace, and environmental preservation.
At the concern in Anaheim, Kristofferson tells the standing-room-only crowd,“I want you to know I’m an Army brat; I was a captain in the Army and my brother was a jet pilot in the Navy.(Cheers). So I support our troops; I identify with them.(More cheers). But I sure as hell don’t identify with the bastards who sent them over there.”

Kennedy and Johnson along with hundreds of members of Congress,mostly Democrats,were responsible for drafting those young men that died in Vietnam. Johnson was never the compassionate leader he wanted people to believe he was.
