    Hailstone the size of a football in Argentina may have smashed a world record - CNN

    Argentina gets hailstorm with hail up to 9" in diameter. This may be larger than the 8" hail from a storm in South Dakota in 2010. We have to get the record back. In other positive news, it only took two years for the news to get here. The hail must have knocked out their internet connection.

    We still have the record. Ours was measured and weighed directly. The modern Guinness book might mention it because it's a bathroom book and not a reference anymore, but the McWhirter twins would never have accepted that photograph as evidence of the exact size of the hailstone.

    That would be absurd. The murder hornets should be carrying football-sized hailstones that have frozen, dormant coronavirus inside of them, and throwing them at people. Those that survive being hit by the hail will have to survive the virus.
