Firstly, I would like to apologize, especially to Gwildor, about my insensitive comments about bullying. I stand by my position that cyberbullying is ridiculous; I really suggest to get out and do your bullying in person. And, if you’re the one being bullied, stand up for yourself, as best you can.

Now on to more pleasant (?) things … There is a big thunderstorm outside right now, with really cool lightning. I’m really fascinated by lightning, so I was interested to see some lightning that did not seem to result in thunder. I was always under the impression that thunder was produced when the lightning hit the ground, and that it was the resulting shockwave. From what I have read, that does not seem to be the case… I also found some cool lightning pictures.
