My wife felt compelled to read this news article to me this morning from The Week magazine.

“Of the 648 people killed by lightning in the U.S. in recent years, more than 80% were men.

Do males perhaps contain more lightning-attracting iron? Does their slight height advantage make them more attractive targets? Alas, no. It’s just that men are stupid. Whether through ignorance, denial, or bravado, men seem less willing to interrupt their outdoor activities when dark clouds begin gathering.”

Ummm . . .
