Lightning strikes more than twice

Off-topic, but this definitely belongs on your cool list. The above was (supposedly) shot with a Casio high-speed digital camera, with a top capture rate of 1200 frames per second. What's interesting is that you can clearly see the pulse from the ground to the sky, along the most "efficient" path of the initial "feelers." Yes, lightning DOES strike twice . . . in fact more than that . . .
