      When lightening Strikes

      This poor chap was out lastnight when lightening hit a local conducto - it took out 400 houses and unfortunately fried everything that was connected in his house at the time.

      here's a picture of his master socket - luckily nothing caught fire

      Yeah I've seen similar myself! I went to a house to look at a TV many years ago in my TV repair days unfortunately it was completely fried. The electricity and phone companys where there at the same time as me and the guy from the electric company lead me to the kitchen where he showed me a 6 inch hole in the metal back panel of the electric cooker with a black burn mark down wall tiles to the floor where he said the lightening "Left the Building"!!! wish I had had a camera.
