Shocking stories of lightning: Read all about these people's encounters with nature's electronic forces.Courtesy andrewomerknapp.
A few weeks ago we posted a link to a story about a guy who got hit in the head with a lightning bolt and lives to tell about it. Here are more lightning strike survivor stories. And the real interesting tidbit of information near the top of the story, 89 percent of people struck by lightning are men. Can you figure out why that would be? Hint: It has nothing to do with the storm scene from the movie "Caddyshack."

I think these storms are triggered by global warming. We've had such strange weather lately, and that's a sign that something is not right with the earth. We need to figure out a way to slow down global warming.

I think global warming gets way too much press and blame for everything - even kidney stones! A bit much drama for me. Someone stands to lose lots of money if this global warming thing is a hoax!

People like yourself are the ones who are in the most denial about Global warming. It's real and we have to do something about it. Anyway, I don't see any logical explanation as to why someone would just make that up.
