These shocking images published by the Associated Press today show one of two boulders that detached and tumbled past a farmhouse and into a vineyard during a landslide in northern Italy. A second boulder stopped just short of the house. The family living in the property was reportedly not harmed during the Jan. 21 incident in the village of Ronchi di Termeno, but a barn was destroyed.

It's pretty juvenile to title an article "OMG" when writing as a professional journalist for Time Magazine. Are the staff at Time twelve, maybe thirteen years old? This is just another example of the disintegration and celebritification of journalism and news in this country. Is Time on par with Nat Geo (Ice Road Truckers,, other BS, etc.) or maybe even People Magazine now?

Actually, there are three boulders...2 in front of the house, and one at the back of the house ( near the car )

@PappuPager  It actually appears the first boulder had been there awhile. The vineyard is built around it. But, I think there is still 3.....is that one in the barn?
