Remember how your mum/dad/legal guardian/leader of your gang of street urchins used to tell you not to stand near telephone poles in a storm? Yeah, there was a reason for that. And as you can see in the video above, that reason goes "boom." Followed by lots and lots of fire.

So for today's lesson, boys and girls: listen to your elders, and stay away from trees, power lines, and anything else that doesn't involve you huddled in a foetal position during thunder storms. And don't eat glue. [Reddit]
