    Me, too.  It is not a meteorite.  The indentations don't look anything like the regmaglypts on an iron meteorite.  The color of the surface doesn't look remotely like any fresh fusion crust I've ever seen nor do the grooves look like flow patterns.  BTW, the easiest test of any _metallic_ object that fell from the sky: if it doesn't attract a magnet, it's not a meteorite.  Period.
