Well That Sucks: Lightning Strike Takes Out Over 300 Reindeer In Norway

August 30, 2016


323 reindeer are dead in Norway after a fierce rainstorm and lightning strike electrocuted them right where they stood. Apparently reindeer instinctively huddle during storms, which made the 323-birds-with-one-stone shot possible.

Officials surmised that an extremely high discharge of electricity from the storm on Friday afternoon -- and the interaction of the lightning with the earth and water -- had electrocuted the animals.

"The lightning was fierce, the amount of water pouring down that day was incredible, and the whole group was found dead at the scene, placed as they usually are, huddled into a group, with some standing in two lines on the side and a larger congregation in the middle," he said. "They were standing on a hill, moving up that hill. They seem to have fallen dead on the ground, exactly where they stood."

Now I'm not saying it's pretty clear that God did this to get back at Santa for constantly overshadowing his son's birthday, but it's really the only logical explanation if you think about it. I didn't get this plastic detective badge out of a 25-cent machine after all. It was a dollar.

Thanks to Stephanie B, who picked lightning as her superpower. I was drunk and picked the ability chew gum so it never loses its flavor.
