2. Florida leads the country in overall lightning strikes on people per year

but NM has the highest per capita strikes.

Just thought I'd throw that in.

Many people survive them if they get really prompt treatment. It all depends on how big a hit the heart took and where the internal burns are.

But understand the dangers of lightening, having grown up in FL.

7. You're much more likely to be hit by lightning than win the lottery.

About a million to one shot.

6. Once my brother and I were close to a lightening strike he was closer

IIRC his hair was singed but he was otherwise alright. I felt very well electrified my hair stood up a bit which was enough for me. Mom and dad made a fuss but after a while all we wanted to do was go back to playing.

She never won the lottery.
