463 Events found in 2005
517 Events found in 2006
588 Events found in 2007
726 Events found in 2008
694 Events found in 2009
951 Events found in 2010
1628 Events found in 2011
2220 Events found in 2012
And 377 Events found in 2013, and 2865 by years end (we are 48 days into the year, with is 13.15% of the year. If this rate continues, it will reach about ~2865 meteors by the end of the year.)"
Thats a significant increase in meteor sightings, and would support the theory we are starting to move through a debris field.
Of course the evidence will be poo-pooed citing "increased reporting, same frequency" by some, but we can all make up our own minds Im sure.

i think you left off some zeros.......
Its also important to note that 12.5 thousand years is roughly how long it takes our solar system to make 1/2 a revolution around the Galaxy.
the milky way galaxy is aprox 100,000 light years across,
for us to travel 1/2 way around we would be going 50,000 light years in 12,500 years,
i dont think your model works, unless we are travelling faster than light
