Very Close Calls: Video Of Two Guys Just Feet Away From Lightning Stike

February 3, 2016

This is a short video of two dudes on a dock in South Sydney, Australia when they almost getting struck by lightning. They are just feet away. That must have been scary, although personally I've always wanted to get struck by lightning because that would be a solid story to tell at the bar. Hey -- hey -- I got struck by lightning once. "Stop talking." Come on, don't you want to buy the guy who got struck by lightning a beer? Then my story could be part of your story and you could tell people you bought a beer for a guy at the bar who's been struck by lightning. That would be cool, wouldn't it? "You're not going to stop talking until I buy you a beer, are you?" Now I want a pink cocktail with a cherry.

Keep going for the video, the consider staying inside during lightning storms.

Thanks to DF, who isn't afraid of lightning because he's convinced it's just really bright light.

    There is one reason for wanting to be struck by lightning : lichtenberg figures.
    It's like a very nice tattoo, except much more badass, because it is made by lightning.

    A lightening bolt hits a lake and it doesn't even cause a ripple in the water? I think someone did some creative editing.

    A ripple is about all a lightning strike on water would make. It's electricity, not a big mass. This video is real, or someone did some amazingly realistic editing.

    Don't know why but I love that tag.

  • Clean up on isle 2.
