No, I don't mind it at all, in fact I think electrical storms are fascinating, especially at night when the lightning really becomes very noticeable. The only thing I don't like is when it's right over head, I prefer it to be a bit of a distance away from me.

I like using lightning in video-games like Final Fantasy & Pokemon but I don't really care for it in real life thou I don't hate it either. I just don't want to get struck or have other bad things happen like roof catching on fire or a power surge that blows my electronics.

Lightning is my favorite weapon in Bioshock :)

I love thunderstorms. I don't like the super loud, sudden cracks of thunder, but do enjoy the softer rumbling, and I don't mind lightning at all. As long as I'm not out in it, anyway - I have major sensory issues with unexpected (or sometimes even expected) wetness. I start getting nervous, though, if it starts hailing or there's a significant chance of tornadoes.

When you assume, it makes an a** out of u and me.

I have increasing memory issues, and a tendency to forget that I forget everything. Please don't take it personally if I forget something, it probably says absolutely nothing about how important the thing is/isn’t to me.

I like watching it, but I turn my lamp off when there's a storm because I think it could explode, even though I know it probably won't.

It can be scary. I turn my T.V. and computer off. What really scares me is when it happens when I'm driving.

Until I was around 15, I hated thunderstorms, and would keep my ears plugged whenever one passed through. Eventually I found it within myself to push past it and even gained an appreciation of them. So, no, I don't hate lightning.

Not in the least. I simply turn things off and unplug them from the main.

^^^ You don't see much of it in Finland, surely?

I think you would have to get off the swing and go indoors,since swings are usually made from metal!

^^^ Right, Finnish thunderstorms are more like an exception to normal than a rule. -- Piu's swing is connected to the yellow-green coded wire which is the ground. I don't know if this is wise or not. :chin:

Ah, earthing. :idea:

Piu is in any case lightning-proof and has special powers.

Piu can fly, you know. And your squirrel (whose name I have forgotten) seems to be wearing pilot's gear.

Oh yes, Zandrian. Would it be a flight on a 7-cylinder radial engine Sopwith Camel?
