Listening to MP3s During Lightning Could Be Disastrous to Your Brains

...stening to MP3s in a storm can literally blow your brains out as one man in Vancouver, Canada, found it out the hard way . Most people who are struck by lightning are not hit directly, but get a "side flash" when the electric discharge jumps from the object that was hit. In 2006, the 37-year-old Vancouve...
