Yep... was working on a laptop a couple of years ago and was testing it's modem (so I had it hooked up to a phone line of course) and a freak bolt of lightning hit a pole nearby and it ran through the line... right to the laptop that was sitting in my lap!!! KABOOM!!! Laptop went one way, chair went another, and fatrap went several directions all at once! Fried laptop... fried fatrap a little... knocked the heck outta me!!!
Oh... and to show you how my friends have become "immune" to my mishaps, when I told my best bud about it (he is a County Deputy) he laughed so hard he almost drove off in the ditch with his patrol car! Then he said "John, you should have been dead a long time ago... God must be keeping you around for a special purpose!" Yep, I said, he sure is.... target practice!!!! #-o
