How can I avoid being struck by lightning?
« on: 14/10/2014 18:50:29 »
Hi, I am from south Africa. I was struck by lightning twice while I was on the telephone.  Once while in a rural area, the other while surrounded by buildings.  On both occasions my ears were ringing for days and the pain was excruciating. What I wish to know is, was I just unlucky or am I prone to attract lightning? is there anything I can do to protect myself in future?
