DAM close lightning strike

I think this scared the piss out of the guy look at him shaking after wards

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

How you found us: another rider on the street
I was helping a neighbor of mine back home years ago with some construction on the side of his house when all of a sudden an ear splitting crack sounded right by us. The three of us dove into the corner of the room we were building covering our ears. When we got back up to see what the hell it was, a bolt of lightning had hit a tree behind his neighbor's house not more than 30 feet from us. Weird thing is, there was no rain. All I know is that is was fucking loud. Not fun to be that close. I can understand why the guy was shaking.

My parents had a bolt hit a small tree in front of their house, bounce off and came through the window and hit a wall in the house. Scared the hell out of them and the cats. They were just kickin' back watching the tube. It took out all the electronics in the house that were on. Mother nature is a nasty bitch.

Be careful out there, Cheers.

I was flying home the other week and saw, heard, and felt lightening hit, or close to hit, the engine on the 737. Scared the hell out of everyone on the plane.

Your not close to lightning unless:
You hear the air start to sizzle or crackle right before the lightning shows up
You can see the defined outline of the bolt and little sub glowing streams of light around it
When it dissipates, it doesn't disappear. You see parts of segment and it kind of falls apart visually.
If your in a car or near electronics, they crackle, TV's lose reception. Radio's just make static.
Your ass cheeks hurt because you puckered up so bad.

Our house got struck by lightening when I was a kid - My Pops was an Avid HAM Radio Buff and we had a MASSIVE antenna on our crib - Ruined Two of our TV's that were on at that time - Scary shit

I was helping out at my aunts farm some 15 years ago. It started getting dark and we went out to gather the sheep. Out of the freaking blue, a lighting struck one of the sheep, about 50 ft away from us. If it wasn't for the fact I literally just took a shite half an hour before, I would've filled my pants...
