This is a world map of lightning strikes as measured in lightning flashes per square kilometer per year. And the winner is...the heart of Africa! Congratulations, now we need to find out a way to turn that into usable electricity. You know how they say lightning never strikes the same place twice? Well that's a lie. Because one time I was talking to this old-timer at the bar and he told me he'd been struck twice -- both times in the head. I believe him too. He said the second bolt made his pecker stop working, and that's not something you lie about to make people think you're cool.
Thanks to Rezah, who tried to harness lightning to cook a hotdog once but just set his arm on fire. Jesus, hold with a rubber glove next time!
