Seeing A Tree Get Hit By Lightning Is Like Watching A Dang Bomb Go Off

Look at that tree up there. It’s got no idea what’s about to hit it. And what’s about to hit it is a big old bolt of lightning that’s gonna blow it the fuck up.

Watch it again. Boom. Reminder, that’s about ten billion joules of energy going into that tree in an instant.
That’s a lot of joules, dude.
It’s never gonna be the same.
