Further Proof Bacon Powers The Universe

74 million years ago a 1.5 mile-wide slab of fatback slammed into what is now Iowa

When a 1.5-mile-wide, 10 billion-ton meteorite humming along at 45,000 miles per hour slams into a place, the consequences are bound to be noticeable for awhile.

But 74 million years?

For some 1,600 thirsty residents of Manson in northwest Iowa, the prehistoric meteorite’s impact is causing new headaches as the city struggles to find a place to sink a new water well.

…Drilling a single residential well is not a problem for most homeowners, but even then the water is likely to be hard and polluted with nitrates.


There’s nothing it can’t do.
