Lightning

Lightning, other than being a really awesome Dean Koontz book, is a beautiful and interesting force of nature.  I love standing outside on my porch during storms, watching the lightning and rain while listening to the thunder and wind.

Apparently, men get struck my lightning four to six times more often than women.  Four to six times!  Many of the people who were struck by lightning were carrying things like fishing poles or golf clubs.  Apparently, Florida has the highest rate of people getting struck by lightning.  Only 20% of people who were struck by lightning died.

Here’s the original article if you’re interested.
