Lightning Strike Captured At 7,000 Frames Per Second

This is a video of a lightning storm filmed at 7,000 frames per second and adjusted for playback at 700 frames per second. The clip was captured by scientists at the Florida Institute of Technology to better understand the dynamics of upper-atmospheric thunderstorms and allegedly not just to play with their fancy new high-speed camera. Man, I wish I'd gotten on the whole high-speed camera tip when they first come out and made a Youtube channel. I could be rich right now. But nooooooo, I was convinced VHS was going to make a comeback and spent all my money buying up shitty old camcorders on eBay. Now look at me. I said look at me! "You're naked." Be honest, do I look beach ready or not? "You look cave ready." That's what I was afraid of.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to my buddy Tom, who's convinced getting struck by lightning is the key to gaining superpowers and has already been struck three times so far but hasn't gained anything but making it harder to hold his pee in.

    Where do these universities get their background music?... sounded strangely similar to "chocolate rain".

  • Well you see, some stay dry and others feel the pain.
