bed for 7 months

lightning isn't selective, and can even strike the same tree more than once during the
same storm. tall buildings, such as the empire state building and the Seattle space needle,
are hit repeatedly.
statistically, lightning strikes within any 1/4 acre of land (not counting tall buildings)
about once every 101 years.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
