Someone once told me that you should always keep your feet together when outdoors in a thunderstorm.
If you stood on a live electrical cable with feet apart there would be a large potential difference, whereas if you stood with your feet together it would be a smaller potential difference. its the p.d. that kills you. electricity generally travels the path of least resistance into the ground, so lightening would presumably kill you when it went past your heart.
