I was going to write a post about how scared I was of lightning, and even made some equations for the post, but *yawn* got a little bored with what was basically a physics lecture disguised as a story. hmmm... :)
parts of what I was working on:
R = ρl/A
I = V/R
nice no? hehe :P
Edit: Found this out just now... Sri Lanka's pretty much a lightning hotspot.
