Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

There are no meteorites that are shaped like this. This rock is a very rough surface, and it's full of holes. If it looks like this, its not a meteorite.
What is it?

Like the previous rock, this looks like a piece of 'a-'a basalt (solidified lava). It might be a clinker, however.
