"This is the captain speaking. Just wanted to let you know that we'll be having a free round of electro-therapy this flight compliments of this ominous cloud up ahead... Those of you with pacemakers should jump when I say to"

Wonder what the 2 people in the bathroom thought. "Honey, was that me or you?"

A plane can handle that shit, but I can't log onto Mucho mid-flight?

yeah i really think its just so you dont fucking annoy the person next to you with your jibber jabba

Ya, why is it we can't go online mid flight? We'd pass time pwning from 30,000 ft.

that was pretty cool

Fake.


lightning travels way faster than that. and why would someone happen to be filming a plane...?

and exactly how fast would you say lightning travels at morph?
10 years ago
As fast as your mom unzips me when I shove my crotch in her fat face.

She does that for you too?

wouldn't lightning travel at something like the speed of light...?
10 years ago
i could be wrong, but i think the current travels at the speed of light but the actual ionization of the air that you see frying actually in slow motion photography kind of travels slowly. like the streak of light can take a tenth of a second to hit the ground. why did i write that i don't even give a fuck about what i'm saying.

Jeeze folks. Lightning travels at the speed of electricity.

And light travels much, much faster.

Godzilla is right. Lightning is the arc-ing of electricity through the atmosphere towards a neutral ground (ie: the earth) so that earth and atmosphere gain balanced charges. Thus light isnt part of this discussion... though it is a byproduct of the anomaly

Light == 187,000 miles/second.

And no, i didn't have to look it up.

Also, the strike shown in this video could have had multiple arcs in it, therefore looking odd the way it did.

i was on a plane that was struck once..I didn't feel anything or see anything but the captain decided to announce it for some reason..maybe just to bug me

Electricity==somewhere around 120,000 miles/hr. but when they go past I cant quite see the difference... Light = warp speed Lightning = impulse power.

Well, there's a few that will know what the reason dik didn't feel anything. The whole electrified cage thing. Stand in a cage, electrify it and it won't hurt you. I could look up the name of it, cuz I forget it, and be a smart ass. But someone will probably know it.

Dik didn't feel anything due to the 20 empty beer cans around his feet.

Invalid didnt due to the single raspberry smirnoff... I think he was teetering upon blood alcohol poisoning

I've heard of people driving and getting hit by lightning and nothing happened. As long as you are inside you're fine. If you were in the bed of a truck or something you'd be fucked I'm sure.

It's the potential. Lightning has the potential to fuck you up, but doesnt always do it.....
