From NZ where lighting
is not regular. Regarding your first post in this chain, I'd also be wearing my rubber gumboots or thongs (the ones for your feet, not the undie ones) if ever stuck in lightning
How thick d'ya reckon the rubber gloves should be? Surgical? Dishwashing (those pink ones)?, or the neoprene dive gloves.
I guess its a question where the answer is "what's the length of a string?".
Don't s'pose anyone's been on a lighting struck boat
with crew wearing rubber, and other crew not wearing rubber, and compared results?
A mate in the recent Sydney
storms touched a waterfront lampost for support, as lighting struck. He and his son got tossed off the seawall onto the beach, luckily between wave surges. Bruised and stiff and a few cuts from the landing, but no burns. I didn't ask if they had rubber soles shoes.
