Lightning safety 101

This is all in the National Weather Service’s lightning safety handbook.  Verbatim.

Metal in no way conducts electricity.  So when a lightning strikes a building quickly run towards the lightning-struck building and touch as much of the metal on it as you can.   Rub the metal all over you until you are nice and electricity free.

On an unrelated note, a recent poll shows that 100% of employees who have finally finished their shift and are about to drive home in the dark will, in the case of a sudden natural disaster concerning their place of employment, run back to said place of employment and behold it with fresh eyes, as if said place of employment had just invented the wheel for the first time.

Opinion: if spinning an image of a skeleton “enriches your knowledge like you’ve never imagined,” you are an idiot with an exceedingly poor imagination.
