Roy Sullivan

I don't have much time today for rolling in comments, it seems. Darned Real Life.

But I still bring links. It's like the little 'gifts' the cats leave on the doorstep.

SciShow can be annoying sometimes, but this was fun. What Happens If You're Struck By Lightning?

Toward the end, Green mentions Roy Sullivan, the world record holder for being persecuted by Zeus. I think I first read about Roy in the old Ripley's Believe it or Not.

Fought off bears twenty-two times and was struck by lightning seven documented times (and more, he says, starting in childhood) and had a "fear of death." WTF? Man, I'm living on a few "borrowed years" of narrowly escaping death myself; he's got enough to spread around a whole village. Why did he not head to Las Vegas!?!!11!
