Well you fucking well do now!  Ok, not struck, but almost.  It was my final day in Melbourne, and I was visiting my cousin in a hospice in the city.  It had just started to rain and I was leaving the building. I took ONE step into the car park and there was an explosion.  You know how your brain works when something suddenly happens? A thousand thoughts race through your mind in a second? At first I though it was kids letting off a firecracker, but I was surrounded by an orange light, and I thought a firecracker wouldn’t have that effect, it must be something big.  I was in a car park, so I thought it was a car-bomb.  My mind was racing so fast, I actually thought how ironic it was that I come to the other side of the world and be caught in a bomb blast. It was only a second later when I realised I was still in one piece that I realised what had happened.  Lightening had struck the ground about 10 feet in front of me, and I've never felt anything so powerful in my life.  I was shaking for about 5 minutes afterwards, my heart still racing.  I suppose it could've been much worse; I could've shit myself.
