I understand that, but still... why would you mow your lawn during one?

Did the iPod survive, btw? LOL

Haha. Unfortunately, I don't think iPods fare well with holes in them.

And the other article (linked by Shof) said he saw the storm coming in from somewhere else and didnt think it was there yet. He thought he had another 15 minutes before he had to go in.

Is this article is writting by a 14yr old?

Why? Is it not up to par with 12 year old is journalistic standards?

The question we must ask is this: Did the ipod actually "attract" the lightining, or did it just increase the damage when the boy was struck? I think that the earphones acted as an insulator, and were exposed to such extreme heat, that they ended up melting...

So the morale of this story is: Wear headphones. :whistle:

And I question the integrity of this article:

"and now it seems that the popular DAP may also make you an attractive target for the cruel wrath of Mother Nature."

"Although its not clear whether the iPod he was listening to acted as an antenna for the bolt of lightning that ran through his body"

Uh oh looks like a contradiction

More proof iPods are evil. Kids gets raped, ganged up, beat, killed, stabbed, robbed, jacked etc when using iPods. Now they even get hit by lightning bolts when using iPods. See? Never get iPods :laugh:

God, now people are going to be stupid enough to think it was the iPods fault he got struck. I think that article was extremely anti-iPod. My question is what was he doing "mowing the lawn" in the middle of a storm, heck what was he doing mowing the lawn even if it was just heat lightning?

Exactly. I think that the lawn mower was the antenna for the lightning and just like any other electrical device, the iPod helped the lightning out.

well i think yes the ipod had some effect when hit by lighting, but blaming it sorry no, it's one of those things that no one can help.
