I wonder if he inspired Cartman?

...just one...more...domino... No

This will be good practice for where he may end up. Maybe he'll be able to accommodate a Galaxy Core Prime phone- http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_c...e-6716.php

God's will.

I was wondering about an, er, attractive static charge on the car but the weather looks wrong for that.

Watched many times to try to see the actual strike point but framing not reliable on my tablet. But it does seem to exit near the exhaust.

Wonder what happened to the occupants? Hopefully the current flowed through the skin of the vehicle, as it does in most aircraft strikes, leaving the occupants merely shitting themselves!

In any event, the tires aren't any more insulation than that of the atmosphere between the vehicle and the other end of the bolt. An automobile is actually a pretty good place to be when there is lightning. Most of the energy will follow the metal around the occupants. The Electromagnetic Pulse appears to have trashed the vehicle's electronics, since it rolled to a stop.

Mind still stuck in the days when I could identify everything under the bonnet/hood and fix most of them! Can't even adjust the timing or fuel/air ratio on my Toyota Shopping Trolley without a computer!

....

Look -- that lightning bolt just jumped 2 miles of air -- which has a far greater resistance than 3/8 of an inch of rubber. And remember -- those tires also have about 5 lbs of stainless steel wound through them .... (steel belted radials)....

Those tires ain't squat.

(08-09-2016 02:58 PM)Gloucester Wrote:  Apart from that the thing that makes tyres black is carbon, a fair conductor at high voltage. In my last job we had trouble finding people who could make rubber that was a sufficient insulator for lining pipes in electromagnetic fluid flow measuring units!

We actually used rubber cups as part of an eletrostatic screening component. Very high voltages drive currents that run through such materials. Try measuring the resistance of a car ignition lead with, basically, a carbon core conductor!



Fuck all y'all! Tongue

It was a digitally edited video, created to be viral marketing bait.

I was in the scrap metal business for a couple of years. One day I drove into a yard I had sold to a number of times and the man came out with a gun on his hip. I drove out and went else where.
Sensible, pagan, sensible!

We were told, in the RAF, "Only carry a gun if you are prepared to use it." They spent a lot of time and effort "preparing" us.

Aw, why didn't someone configure it as a dart board or a roulette wheel so we could place bets or roll dice for options!
