According to the National Lightning Safety Institute in Louisville, Colorado, there were 17 lightning deaths in Arizona between 1990 and 2003. The state ranked No. 15 in the country for lightning deaths. Florida was No. 1 with 126 reported lightning deaths.


Good to know God is doing something about Florida but clearly its not enough.

Rubber chairs are rather hard to come by. Wood might have been a better option - but we all know the testicular danger of sitting on one.

This kind of idiocy is revolting. Resistance to current thinking about safety procedures clearly shows a lack of ample consideration of the severity of the situation. I dong want to vecome overcharged about the issue but it's obvious their connection to reality has been overcome by their capacitance to reason clearly.

How to use a metal chair to protect yourself in an electrical storm.


Step one: Throw the metal chair into the tallest tree in the vicinity.
Step two: Go sit under some other tree.

They never tell you the odds of being injured or killed by hail.
 
2014-08-11 04:17:31 PM  
So does he turn white, lose all his hair and have the power to electrocute anyone?
 
2014-08-11 04:19:24 PM  
In his defense, the chair protected him against the hail.
 
2014-08-11 04:23:37 PM  
The real problem is that he was caught outside during a thunderstorm. Given the option between getting pelted by hail or hiding under a metal chair, I think I would have done the same thing.
