Lightning continues to be a major environmental threat

I hope they mean FROM the environment and not TO the environment.

Oh great, now they won't want to climb mountains during thunderstorms too :P

Surprising how many people die from lightning there though in all seriousness.

Both died on the spot.

On. The. Spot.

That was so poorly written that it makes the average Daily Fail article seem Pulitzer-worthy.

"What are those lights in the sky?" he wondered.

Suddenly, it struck him.

Lightning...is the second most efficient storm-related killer after floods.

Next SyFy movie: Dinolightningcroc vs. Octoflood!

You mean there are people out there who don't get lightning YET?!

Well, that's good. We gotta have something to keep the population down.

When I was 13, I was walking along and got a weird tingling feeling on my skin.

Then there was a bright light and a really loud sound.

Lived.

It would SUCK to have a paper route delivering the Himalayan Times.

"Billy? I just got a call from Tenzing in the Death Zone. He says you threw his paper into a bottomless ice crevasse again."

Lightning is dangerous but seriously, even if you are doing something absolutely foolhardy your odds are amazingly good.

The most commonly accepted theory of how lightning forms is that, when ice and water particles collide in cloud, they are charged.

O'rly?

Reading that hurt my head. Like a lightening strike.
