I liked Lee Trevino's strategy. Hit a few times himself whilst playing golf, he said whenever he saw a line of thunderstorms approaching, he reached for his 2 iron. "Even God can't hit a 2 iron."

ericb, that iPod news bit has been in rotation all day. Sometimes I wish the news peoples would call it like I see it: someone had a metal electronic device strapped to them in a thunderstorm. This is not a product alert. It's an alert against being an idiot. Slow news day?

The iPod is a red herring here. The important thing is that joggers are finding out what God really thinks of them.

And those daring golfers...

At least 159 of em dead so far in the us only!

And then I found lots of really interesting lightning death statistics and stories here.

Apparently god hates people living in Wyoming the most.

Some of the markings that a lightning strike will leave are incredible...
