There was thunder and lightning this morning. I had to go to work anyway. As I walked through the heavy rain, there was a flash, and a crack a couple seconds later. I wondered if it was heading towards me or away from me. I tried to imagine getting struck by lightning, but I couldn't. You see, there is no warning when one gets struck. How could there be? It's faster than sound. (See above.) And your synapses would over-fire immediately, meaning there'd be no time to say, "Lightning." You'd be, then not be.

I understand it's made of plasma.
