    Yeah, that's a pretty scary accident. Wonder if he had to replace the bench seat in his truck afterwards? (I hear that human waste stains are very hard to clean!)

    Damn lucky that he landed on that ledge though. It would have been a long fall otherwise!

    Dunno, how loud are they in Australia? :twisted:
    That's where that one was, I think. I know Brisbane can throw a good storm, too. Would have been the only thing that could have saved England a whitewash. Apparently.

    Damn!!!! That strike was really close. See the feeder that looks like it hits the tree right in front of him? Wow!

    I'll be the guy actually got shocked when it struck. And yeah, it was probably deafeningly loud. (Wonder if he crapped his pants? I know I would have!)

    Still, it's one hell of a picture!

    That's what I thought at first, that bit close to the tree nearly hitting him. I guess you have what I found out later, that term 'feeder'.. I read that that's one of many upstrokes that ionizes a path for the main current of electrons to come down. It is a VERY near miss, that main bolt might have found that feeder as one of its top five or so paths to jump, so his chance of utter annihilation ranked as a 20% chance, maybe. Put like that, I have to wonder if the car guy had the edge after all.
