Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

It's rectangular. Meteorites are never rectangular and they never have sides this flat (...but, see no. 176).
What is it?

This photo was sent by somone in Pakistan. It's so rectangular that it looks like it was cut this way. Perhaps it's an old building stone. Perhaps it's an old building stone cut from a meteorite. Can't tell from the photo.
