I have a theory about why people would stay in the arctic and not migrate to a warmer region. I think they started heading South and saw lightning. They feared they angered the gods and headed back up to the frozen region to chew on whale blubber.

Clearly it is I'd say, from Zoroastrianism and the Persian mythologies that proceeded it. Judaism built a lot off of them, and in turn the other Abrahamic religions did too obviously.

That there is a Superbolt.

1 in every 2 million lightning strikes is a Superbolt, mainly over water and form in positively charged clouds rather than negative like average lightning.

u/DankDanishMuffin Nov 25 '22

A quick google tells this

Events of this magnitude occur about as frequently as one in 240 strikes. They are not categorically distinct from ordinary lightning strikes, and simply represent the uppermost edge of a continuum. Contrary to popular misconception, superbolts can be either positively or negatively charged, and the charge ratio is comparable to that of "ordinary" lightning.

Breaking News

FLORDIA MAN HIT BY LIGHTNING AND PUT INTO COMA.

Florida Man Barry Allen was working inside his laboratory inside Tallahassee when a freak lightning strike broke through a window and struck him knocking him unconscious and stopping his heart multiple times. Ambulance crew said his body was so charged from the shock it fried the defibrillator on board and also destroyed 2 in the ER. After a few frantic hours doctors and nurses were able to stabilize the victim and has since fallen into a coma. Doctors state everything seems perfectly fine with him even the fact that his burns seemed to almost instantly heal up, but his Coma does not seem to wain. His adoptive father Joe West has set up a GoFundMe but his employer seems to be fronting the brunt of his medical bills currently.

This megaflash of lightning lit up an area stretching from Texas to Mississippi. To put it into perspective, it's like seeing a single flash of lightning spanning from New York City to Columbus, Ohio.

9

u/AlienGlow001 Nov 25 '22

No? They don't all spread like that before finding the best path to electrical ground. This is a large charge trying multiple paths before finding the 'best' or lowest resistance, and slamming the energy from all the fingerling lightning bolts into the most direct path to the source of the charge, earth.

This is the kind of lightning strike that you see far away, and assume the thunder roll will be quiet, then it fucks your ears anyways, and you think "DAMN that still hit hard as fuck"

For some clarity, the "web" of lightning you see at the beginning of the video is not able to be witnessed by the human eye. This can only be viewed through cameras or special effects. Hence, why the video is super slow motion. Electricity always follows the path of least resistance, this is what that web of lightning was looking for. The first part of that web that connected to the ground is the actual lightning strike, aka the part that can actually be seen by the human retina. OP's description in the video is bullshit.
