BOOM! Lightning strikes...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

BOOM! Lightning strikes...

Postby StroppyChops » Mon Jun 09, 2014 5:57 pm

Direct hit to the lightning rod on the building next door - nice! The cat is a little wide-eyed now.

Why is it that some rods get hit more often than others - better earth?

1. Height. Highest point gets hit.

2. Material. Better conductors get hit more often if there is a choice.

3. Other factors such as wind and rain/humidity play a part too.

#2 means better earth as well... though it's not a sure fire thing.

Have to keep the CIA guessing, Snowden needs whatever help he can find.

And yes, I did take those photos of Hefner's GF's boobs, but it was in the interests of rational insecurity
