Nigel: I am trying to remember where I picked up hepatitisAll I can say is, poor guy...
Me: ahem....lightning seldom strikes twice in the same place
Nigel: one guy was struck by lightning seven times
Me: that's why i said "seldom", not "never"
Nigel: he was a ranger in Yellowstone Park. if I recall (he) committed suicide in the end. Roy Sullivan was his name. just looked it up. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Sullivan
