I think he was being punished for wearing that hat

I bet they're hoping they get super powers after this.

God was trying to save him from stupid hats.

Synthetic mary-joo-wanna is bad. Un-kay?

I see what you did there, subby.

S-s-s-six-six-six-six-six-six-sixty-sixty-six times. In-n-n-n-n-n-n-In-n-n-n-n-n-n-In-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n the head!

Was it that Powder kid?

Something like this can affect the mindset of a young kid.
I'd hate to see him become a negative person.

Depending on his condition after being discharged, he could be at risk of being bi-polar.

I have a neighbor who was struck twice by the same lightning bolt, does that count?
2012-04-18 10:57:39 AM

I don't think I'd wear that hat ever again.

In St. Louis, they were called Brock Umbrellas because Lou Brock tried to sell them. He didn't sell alot of 'em.

Well done, subby.

Great find, subby...

Should be a PS contest, perhaps?
2012-04-18 11:00:26 AM  
Someone should keep an ion him.
2012-04-18 11:01:12 AM  
you could look at that negatively or positively, depending on your pov.

I think his odds are better that he'll be hit a third time.

Everyone knows lightning doesn't strike twice....except when it does.

2012-04-18 11:20:08 AM  
Ohm my FSM, Watt are the odds of this happening ?
2012-04-18 11:20:32 AM  
His capacity to resist these two shocking events is........oh nevermind.

That's a pretty negative headline, subby. Perhaps you should have pointed out that the teenager was very current with his fashions.

What is the RC time constant of a human?

Back in my day lightning couldn't strike twice in the same place more of that global climate change.
2012-04-18 01:40:43 PM  
Wire kids always doing stuff like that?
2012-04-18 01:50:38 PM  
He now thinks the hat saved his life.

Yes, surely wearing something on his head with metal spokes sticking out in various directions from a little wire cage protected him instead of being the reason he was struck by lightning, in the head, twice.

funny subby +1

Lightening strikes twice -- makes me wish there was a kickstarter for Theme Hospital 2
2012-04-18 11:29:04 PM  
I bet his lifespan will be short.
2012-04-19 11:17:13 AM  
He's probably never gotten so much static in his life.
