overall this seems plausible to me as a way to minimise lightning strike injuries RT @Er1s_Wh33l: @bengoldacre content.artofmanliness.com/uploads//2014/…
now, @Suw suggests putting your arse in the air, so the lighting bypasses your chest and heart on its route into the earth.
or would being a few inches above the ground 70% of the time make no difference?
if you feel your hair standing up, meaning you're at high risk of a lightning strike, surely you shld start hopping? minimal ground contact?
@bengoldacre here's an idea: have @flightradar24 running on a wee 4G smartphone in every missile battery. ADS-B integration on the cheap.
