    What's the real question?

    "who was jogging in a storm"
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/6896530.stm

    The real advice would be stop being such a dumb-ass by going jogging in storms. Your current accessory list is irrelevant.


    Or just give them a fake death certificate with a link to a www.darwinawards.com honourable mention, and let them figure it out for themselves.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Hmm, yeah, not jogging in a storm might help. Well, not an electrical storm, anyway.

    Several other cases of people suffering burns and hearing loss after being struck by lightning while wearing personal stereos have also been recorded.
    I didn't realize jogging durring a storm was a fad.

    You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but that person will only know what he learns himself.

    Now I know what doesn't work.

    A problem is understood by solving it, not by pondering it.
