The odds of getting struck by lightning in any given year are about 1 in 300,000. And although roughly 90% of those struck survive, the electrical discharge scars some of them with a tattoo-like mark, known as the Lichtenberg figure. But that’s not all.

When this amount of energy enters your body, it short-circuits the small electrical signals that run the heart, lungs, and nervous system


This can lead to cardiac arrest, seizures, brain injury, spinal cord damage, and amnesia

For example, it can bore holes in your retina and cause cataracts (cloudings of the lenses)

Unfortunately for men, lightning can also induce impotence and decrease libido in general

The Lichtenberg figures are the results of the lightning moving toward the surface of the body.
When it forces the red blood cells out of your capillaries.

You can't avoid it really although precautions can be taken like installing good thunder and lightning arrestor
But one billion volts of electricity can hardly be stopped

A man called Winston Kemp was struck by lightning back in 2011. Ironically, the man is an electrician cheesy
“I went outside to save my pumpkins. After that, I was going back inside”
“I just know it struck in our neighbor’s backyard, and it was bright and loud. I didn’t feel anything I just came back inside like nothing was wrong. Umm…my arm was sore. It was maybe an hour before I saw the marks”

And they can also engrave fields of grass


golf courses can really highlight these Lichtenberg figures

They are named after the German physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg who originally discovered and studied them
