 Zeus is alive and well and living in Slovenia

Zeus is pissed:
LJUBLJANA (Reuters) - A man died after lightning struck a metal cross he was holding during a funeral in a village near Ljubljana, the Slovenian news agency STA reported Thursday.

It said the 62-year-old man died in hospital Wednesday evening, several hours after the incident in the village of Brezovica. Another person at the funeral was slightly injured.

While it is sad that this guy died, his dumbass move is worthy of a Darwin Award. Perhaps he was thinking that god would protect him?

Last year we had a violent thunderstorm that seemed to be localized directly above the three-story building where I work. It was about 5:00 pm and people were huddled by the doors watching lightning strike the parking lot and surrounding area. People were rightfully wary about trying to get to their cars.

After about five minutes, a woman in her late twenties blurted out: "I'm not afraid! God will protect me!" She stepped outside and opened her umbrella and proceeded to her car. I was flabbergasted by the complete dumbass-itude of that move. She was grounded in a half-inch of water holding a metal rod in a lightning storm.

Fortunately she made it unharmed to her car. Unfortunately she will probably use her stroke of luck as "evidence" of a supernatural deity that will personally protect her from all manner of nasty things. I expect one day I will see her and her car wrapped around a tree, bible in hand.
