Fast as lightning

Ivan Zaborovsky was warming up with his FC Znamya Truda soccer team on a field just outside Moscow on July 4 when the bolt of lightning landed in a direct-hit flash, sending a cloud of black turf pellets spraying making it appear as if he might have been vaporized. The 16-year-old goalkeeper has returned to the pitch less than three weeks after he took a direct hit captured on the scary video below. Coach Anton Basov rushed to his unconscious player and found him face down with the front of his jersey singed. Ivan was hospitalized and has no memory of what happened. However, he has a physical reminder: a burn mark on his chest from a necklace he had been wearing. “It was difficult to breathe, but that’s about it,” Ivan told Reuters. “It’s getting better and better now. Things are back to normal.” On Tuesday, he signed with his club’s senior team.

Brilliant Flashy Humor:

When it comes to getting things done, his work ethic is like lightning.
He takes the path of least resistance.

I’m hammering a nail into the wall when my wife comments “You hammer like lightning”
I replied, “You think I’m that fast?”
She said “No. You never hit the same spot twice”

The trouble isn’t that there are too many fools, but that the lightning isn’t distributed right.

A bar opened opposite a church. The church prayed daily against the bar business. Days later the bar was struck by lightning & caught fire which destroyed it. The bar owner sued the church authorities for the cause of its destruction, as it was an action caused by their prayer. The church denied all responsibility. So, the judge commented, “It’s difficult to decide the case because here we have a bar owner who believes in the power of prayer and an entire church that doesn’t believe in it”
