When you mentioned the herd of cows, that struck close to home. My dad lost 19 cows to lightning, as they were gathered under a tree at the time it hit. Also, my dad was struck by ground lightning twice, and the first time it lifted one of his feet up off the ground. (He’s still with us, though, thank God. We do think that has something to do with his heart rhythm problems, though.) We’ve also had lightning strike the large round type hay bales setting them on fire, so we had to call out the volunteer fire department. (Can you tell we live in the country?). In addition, my parents had a tree basically explode due to lightening twice, once in the back yard and once in the front yard. I was still a kid when the back yard strike happened in the middle of the night, and the big oak tree was close to my upstairs bedroom. (The lightening also hit two smaller pine trees and a dogwood.). The boom was so loud I sat bolt upright in bed from a deep sleep. Scary is not the word! I was at work when the front yard strike happened, but my mom and nephew were at my parent’s home. They strike blew chunks of the tree up over the house into the backyard, and if you knew what a large front yard my parents have, you’d realize how amazing that is. The strike had hit a poplar tree and left a widowmaker that scared us to death for a long time until it finally fell out of the tree without hitting anybody. And that still is not all! my brother (who lives a very short walking distance from my parents) had a poplar tree in his front yard explode due to lightening one day. Knocked out their phone and I believe the power for a while. And that tree was smaller than the one in my parents front yard, so it was almost totally destroyed. I understand that poplar trees are bad to attract lightening due to high water content.

It can also make your skeleton show through your skin if you get zapped 😜 For a while I thought that if you got a straight jolt of lightning, there's so much raw energy in it that it would make you explode into dust, sort of like those extremely high voltage wires did to some people standing on top of a train in Asia, there's a video of it, it's bonkers.

i'm guessing the 7 time winner guy didnt kill himself from neurological depression but the simple evidence that God hates him. lightning strikes are so rare and traumatic that after maybe 2 or 3 you just have to consider the possibility that you are straight-up cursed and after 7 i'm assuming he was more than convinced of this. he probably just got sick of lightning finding him and kicking his ass that he decided to eat a bullet instead given the painless alternative to however many more strikes he would have gotten before dying of leukemia, since lightning fries and mutates the bone marrow and often leads to bone cancer.

You forgot the long-term physiological side-effect of your body's electric field. There's evidence to suggest that each time you get struck by lightning, it increases your odds of being struck again because of conductive deposits left in the path of the bolt through your body.

They say u are more likely to be struck by lightining then win the lottery. Well i have a relative who was struck by lightining twice and won large amounts of money twice on scratch tickets. Both sets of events happened within about a 4 year period.

During the deepest and darkest moments of my depression I was actually prescribed schock therapy (nothing to do with movies caricature, I received the shocks while sedated and asleep), 60 sessions over 120 days. And it worked! Marvelously. So why somebody got depression and suicidal thoughts from lightning? Is it like a cardiac arrest? Too much stops the heart, the right dosage restarts?

He said you don’t just get back up after a lightning strike, look up Ray Caldwell. He was a pitcher for the Indians almost 100 years ago, he was struck by lightning in the 9th, inning and knocked unconscious, when he was revived, he pitched the rest of the game.

One time I almost got struck by lightning. So here's what it was like me and my buddy were walking down the street it was a little cloudy that day during monsoon season here in Arizona. Didn't think too much of it until we got to the wash next to a stop sign and started walking down it next thing I know I see nothing but blue and hear the loudest explosion in my life. And my feet started to tingle that was pretty much it but me and my buddy look each other in the eyes for a quick second turn tail and run. It was really freaking scary definitely do not recommend almost getting struck by lightning.

Survivor here. You forgot to mention the metallic taste left in the victim's mouth... I also experienced some anxiety whenever I was in dark places, for about a month after it. And occasionally dreamed the thunder boom at night while sleeping, waking me up. I guess I'm just lucky I closed my eyes, I was waiting for it... Tinnitis ever since... 1983.The bolt travelled through my boots while I was sitting as low as I could.

False, it happens while someone turns on a particle accelerator that fails and you become the flash

Lee Trevino was a great golfer. He was also struck by lightning several times :-) Once, they were evacuating the course during a competition (for the thunderstorm that was raging above them) and Trevino was holding a golf club up in the air. As a reporter went past he shouted something like, WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU MANIAC?" "Even God can't hit a one iron." I think it was two days later, Trevino was struck by lightning (again) and said he thought the two events might have been related :-)

I thought lightning, when striking the human body, traveled through the moisture on the skin and that being the reason not many people getting killed by the initial strike.

and if you get struck by dark matter infused lightning released by an exploding particle accelerator while surrounded by various chemicals or while you're sitting on an electric chair, you can run super fast, heal very quickly... and you also will have to eat 10,000 calories a day and you can't get drunk...
