Given some of the places that get pierced, it could have been a lot worse.

What exactly does a "special service agent for Virgin" do, anyway?

Nothing like having your tongue turned into a bacon strip.

This storoy begs the question: did she subsequently remove the metal paraphrenalia -- or not??? If not, I hold no sympathy for this bimbo.
Lucky she didn't have braces in her mouth.
The 26-year-old special service agent for Virgin at Heathrow is still shaken and recovering at her west Reading home after the lightning bolt zeroed in on her lip and tongue piercings.
This is typical pig ignorant media reporting. Lightning is not "attracted" to metal. Lightning is just trying to follow the path of least resistance to ground. After breaking down normally non-conductive air, thousands of feet worth, a tiny bit of metal in the path makes no difference.
She was hit because she was standing in the path where lightning was going to strike anyhow. It had nothing to do with her, or any small amount of metal in the vicinity.

I wouldn't thank Him, sweetie, it looks like He was trying to kill you. Just be thankful He's apparently not a marksman. LOL!!
I'm ashamed to admit I was more concerned about he families and loved ones of those killed in our war on terrorism.
My abject apologies to the Beckys of the world.
Oh, and by the way, what color ribbon should I wear to make others as shallow as myself more aware of the plight of brain-dead dimwits such as Becky?

I hate the annoying static shocks of carpets and car doors, in Winter. I can't even relate to you folks getting zapped with KVs! Blows my mind.
