Getting a Charge Out of Life

A single lightning bolt managed to strike 91 people at an auto racng event in Norway. Fortunately no one was killed or seriously hurt, but 45 of the injured were taken to area hospitals. The bolt hit a hillside that was filled with spectators watching the race.

That's why when I'm caught outside in a thunderstorm, I immediately seek out the shelter of the tallest tree around. I figure that way, lightning will have a hard time finding me. As an added precaution, I also like to hold a metal golf club over my head to ward off any bolts that do happen to spot my hiding place.

You can never be too cautious.
