Also of interest, and then if my wiki research is correct, if we(USA) can make it to Jan. 17, there will only have been 3 deaths from earthquake in 20 years.

It's hard to get struck by lightning when Americans' fat asses are firmly planted on their couches.

Dear America,

Love the way you are going with this gay marriage thing.

Love, God

Really good electrical storms are a dying tradition in America.

A lot of smaller towns don't even have them anymore due to the economy.

You have to go to a big city to see a good one.

Thanks Obama.

On the plus side, lightning struck some poor sap at the Creationist museum. Didn't kill him, but made for satisfying news.

That's because were all fat porkers who never go outside anymore.

It's HAARP. They're taking the lightning from the sky and using the energy to make lightning bombs. They could use the energy to power every house in America for free, but no--bombs.

I like the direct approach - we alternate all too often, sparking impulse after impulse.

Since lightnings strikes are a Sign From God™, it's rather obvious why this has occurred.  It's because we doubled the number of states where gay marriage is legal.  See, God is Fabulous.  Seriously, he's very much gay.  What was his "sign" for the dude that put all the animals in the boat?  A RAINBOW.  He sent his son to earth to a virgin chick because he thinks straight sex is icky.  And what does his son do?  He hangs out with a bunch of dudes in robes.

Excellent graphical correlation, but the length of beards and skirts will have to factor in somehow.

Remember when the actor playing Jesus in a movie got struck by lightning in Italy?

That was ironic.

The assistant director got struck by lightning--twice.

*First Black Jesus with a Jewfro in motion picture history. (Well, second, maybe.)

Sweet Jesus with a Jewfro! would be a good cuss.
