    Multiple People Struck By Lightening at PGA Championship

    Sounds like a minor mass casualty event right now. Lightening much of a hit a tree near a crowd on the green. Looks like at least four casualties of unknown injuries. Think the championship was in Atlanta.

    We need a government investigation to look into this, heck maybe start a whole new government agency.

    I’m surprised this hasn’t happened more often. For one, I believe most events of people hit by lightning happen on golf courses. But when lightning is detected during a tournament, the PGA quickly shuttles the players back in to safety with carts. But the leave the drunk spectators to fend for themselves like a herd of cattle.

    Most people who are hit by lightning are at golf courses? Barack Obama is then the luckiest man alive.

    Two routers and a desktop zapped by lightning. The routers, right where i sit in the last two years. Last one passed THREE GFI circuits. First, the Utility at the main, then a GFI outlet, then a power strip AND my metal desk frame, gave me a mild jolt.
    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon! KEEP AMERICA GREAT, TRUMP 2020
