I think I spent most of my childhood – and a large part of my life as a young adult – desperately wishing I was in a video game arcade. When I finally obtained my driver's license, my first thought wasn't about the girls I would take on dates, or the road trips I'd take with my friends.

Dr. Wu's explanation for ball lightning might also tangentially explain why some lightning strikes are instantly lethal and some are survivable or even relatively harmless.

Microwave bursts can be very dangerous to tissue. If some lightning strikes generate them and others don't, that would go a long way towards explaining the strangely wide range of lightning strike injuries.
