Your god wants legal weed and gay marriage.

So, God wants me to gamble, hook up, and lie? Sweeeet!

So, Westboro Baptist Church is going to stay in the compound for a while?

TFA: Almost No Americans Die From Lightning Strikes Anymore-Why?

My DNRTFA answer: Because we're a bunch of lazy first-worlders who stay inside all the time?

Like me, God can't afford his electric bill.
 
2014-01-15 12:53:07 PM
Maybe it's because no one goes outside any more?

TFA didn't expressly say that, but it did point to a decrease in the percentage of people living in rural areas, which would probably also mean fewer people outside on average at any given time.

Because more and more people have seen this bone-chilling video?

Is this god taking applications for followers?

What about the massive upsurge in rubber-sled shoes over metal hob-nailled boots making you a less attractive target?

This just means god is getting bored with the human ant farm. Get ready for the big shake.

Interestingly enough that coorelates with the increase in states allowing same sex marriage.

Suck it, Jesus  Freaks.

It's because our government is finally allowing His people the freedom to worship.

No mention of more people knowing CPR or having access to emergency medical services?

I'd be curious how the ratio of people struck by lightning to the number of people killed at a result of being struck looks over time.

Woah... wait just a second mister!.... you saying my shoes make me ugly?
 
2014-01-15 01:00:03 PM
TFA suggests it is because fewer people are farming now.  I would think just the number of idiots on golf courses would offset that many times over.

FTA:

Modernization and urbanization may have each played their parts, but so have better education about lightning safety and improved medical treatments.  By one count, in 1959 there were two injuries for every lightning death; by 1994 there were eight; by 1991 the ratio climbed as high as 10:1.

Old and busted: Death from lightning strikes. New hotness: Death from "stand your ground" shooters.

This is a good time to read about Roy Sullivan, who was struck 7 times.

On August 7, 1973, while he was out on patrol in the park, Sullivan saw a storm cloud forming and drove away quickly. But the cloud, he said later, seemed to be following him. When he finally thought he had outrun it, he decided it was safe to leave his truck. Soon after, he was struck by a lightning bolt. Sullivan stated that he actually saw the bolt that hit him. The lightning set his hair on fire, moved down his left arm and left leg and knocked off his shoe, although it did not untie the lace. It then crossed over to his right leg just below the knee. Still conscious, Sullivan crawled to his truck and poured the can of water, which he always kept there, over his head.
