We do not NEED electromagnetic amplifiers, particle cannon, lazers or any other damned thing to make our own weather. When NASA/JPL test a rocket, the by product is essentialy a hell of a lot of water vapour. When they fire one of those bad boys at ground level, the warm moist gas floats up into the air, and shortly later, if the conditions are right, it will rain.

China have been using various cloud seeding techniques to induce clouds to bare thier fruits over farmland and so on, by flying planes through clouds, and dropping particles of silver into them, to increase the amount of condensation nuclei that are literaly the seeds of rain.

Now, although these do not directly increase the likelihood of lightning, we do know that the electrical discharge that lightning represents, is a symptom of the top of a cumulonimbus cloud being positively charged, and the bottom being negatively charged. Most meteorologists would tell you that they believe that lightning is created when these particles are forced into interaction, although the various mechanics suggested by which this might occur are deep in of themselves, but widely available, so no link, and no explanation here.

What I am saying is that all that need happen for lightning to be created, is for cumulonimbus to be created. There is NOTHING else that needs to happen. Oh sure, there are governments who could afford to build complicated hi tech machines to do the job, but why , when they know that in essence all that one has to do is create the correct circumstances, would they need to use a complicated system, use a metric hell-ton of power, just to achive the same result?

i just got in an argument with my girlfriends son about the dangers of lightening, he thinks its cute to go stand outside during lightening storms and i told him i didn't care what the odds say on the weather channel because it only takes to get hit by lightening to discount the odds


really sad and incredible so many got it at once, especially in a place that has nothing but heartache and sorrow anyway

I always go out when there is a lightning storm. The power and majesty of lightning is an incredible draw on me, and to witness such mighty energies being discharged is a gift from on high in my opinion. To be stood at the shore of the sea, with pounding rain in ones face, wind smashing one almost from ones feet, and to behold the awesome power of nature when it is in the throws of these electric tantrums is one of the most incredible things a person can possibly expirience.

As far as the risks of this go , my thinking is this:

There are two good deaths to die. One is with an axe in one hand, and a sheild in the other, with your wounds to the fore and a mortal enemy before you, and many more underfoot. If one cannot hope for that (and few can these days) then being taken by the finger of the sky seems a decent trade.

And? When I was fifteen I took walks out in storms, solo climbed one of the three highest peaks in the UK with no ropes , helmet, or specialised equipment, scaled the walls of Colchester Castle, and knew my hometown as well by night as by day.

A child, especialy a male child, finds growth of endurance and stamina hard to maintain if he is not allowed to use his instincts and strengths to ascertain his limitations. Being allowed to face the elements and triumph over them is one of the key development tools that a youth can weild in learning his place in the natural order.

Im twenty six, but the lessons I learned when I was fifteen, by being free to an extent to learn about the limits of my power and mastery of myself, are what shape my current understanding of my capabilities , and my capacity to deal with what the world throws at me. Without those valuable lessons, I would assume myself to be far less able , and be far less confident in my understanding of my limitations, and by extention, less confident in terms of every day life.

Just because something is dangerous, does not mean that one should be isolated from it. Germs for instance. If you totaly isolate someone from germs until they reach adult hood, thier immune systems will be non existant and the moment they are allowed of the leash, they will die of some form of weak flu,rather than being strong enough to fight the bug off.

Just as an immune system has to learn about the world by absorbing germs and learning thier composition for use later, so a human mind and body must learn to endure the elements, so that the owner learns how to cope with thier effects. Keeping a fifteen year old out of a thunderstorm is like telling them not to grow up strong!
