In fact, I don't know much about golf period.

It comes from Scotland, like kilts and bagpipes, and that is all one needs to know.

"Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into an even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose."

I'm sure the country club republicunts would love to make it a law but they can't seem to get it enacted.

Golf is dying here the same way it is dying everywhere else. I think Trump gave it a bad name.

I would have thought it necessary to call the police.

Personally I thought it had died when Tiger Woods agreed to use recordings of his dead father to sell products.

The cops only come out to shoot minorities, here.

(Except. maybe, in the eyes of a US TV evening news editor.)

How many humans saw the Gulf of Mexico impact?
No, remoteness has nothing to do with the "importance" of the event. But it does have to do with the odds any potential surviving fragments will be found. And if there is any importance to the event, it will derive from the classification of any found fragments. If they are ordinary chondrites, hard to find any importance to the event. If they are lunar or Martian meteorites, that would rank as an important event.

I do not understand.
What kind of meteorites are these?
