Nature Awesomeness: Lightning!
YES… LIGHTNING KICKS ASS!
Stop your grumbling. I can hear it from here. You’re saying, “Lighting, How is that Awesome, I mean its violent, unexpected, made of electricity, burns holes in trees and can blow your socks off… literally …” See you convinced yourself. Let me give you a second to retract your doubt. BEHOLD!
So lighting is pretty scientific, not so much over the heads of our readers; more just over the heads of our writers. In a nut shell stuff happens in the sky that causes electricity to destroy stuff after thunder. That’s actually the Scientific America explanation of how lighting strikes… don’t judge me (Scientific America they are the idiots). In fact the exact cause of lighting isn’t even known today. There are a lot of rumors and hearsay but not one scientific rule. Just like how chocolate is made or how the sun sets without burning the earth (I mean they touch!). The fact that something happens and we humans can’t figure it out is badass right there.
What happens when lighting hits something. Explosions, searing pain, bursting flames and glass. Don’t laugh! It’s true … if lighting hits sand it can turn the silica into glass! WOW! I mean I didn’t want my sand box to become a window… fuck you lighting… but that is amazing none the less.
What happens to humans?????? Your shoes can blow off your feet. Your teeth can explode! YOU CAN DIE! But it usually just looks comical like this guy.
Lighting is like Nature’s bouncers. People will always hang out side during rain, snow or wind, but the second lighting hits… even 10 miles away. Sirens go off and the pool party is over. Lighting is a party pooper though. Its just jealous that it can’t swim…every time it tries it ends up killing everything in the pool and that makes lighting sad. Which in turn makes it angry. If it can’t attend a pool party … neither can you.
Lesson: Getting hit by lighting is funny. According to Google Images.
Lighting hates pool parties.
