    1:57 The "guides" or little lightnings that SLOWLY (in comparison!) travel towards the ground? Those are so cool!

    Amazing how it stays "crooked" eh?

    If we could capture that energy, store it long-term, it would change the world. Free or almost free energy would break the chains of energy dependance worldwide.

    But alas "Capturing lightning in a bottle" is a pipe dream for now.

    I remember a long time ago I had learned that lightning goes from the ground up from high speed, but slower than this, film. Guess that`s the "return stroke" they were talking about.

    @lauriloo: Yup! There`s different kinds of lightning. And it`s more complicated than we used to imagine.

    "ball lightning" is amazing! I`ve seen it only once...

    @ Quackor

    Pretty lame? And this critique is coming from someone who lives in Texas and thinks it is South America?
