I believe it's safe to say that this is proof of GOD CUMMING ALL OVER THE EARTH. That loud noise that accompanies it? His O-face.

simple explanation:
1. an electrical charge is contained in the clouds.
2. it releases its energy.
3. the energy that is released needs to find the nearest ground (ground is positive while the lightning is negative)
4. when the nearest channel reaches ground (first strike), it releases all its energy left called a re-strike (second strike).
the first strike produces thunder and is prolonged by the second strike

Too bad lightning strikes actually go up. When a storm cloud discharges electricity to Earth, a small "leader stroke" zigzags toward the ground in about one one-hundredth of a second. Once it touches something-a tree, a pole, a barn or the ground- the electrical circuit is complete and a vast surge of electricity, the lightning bolt, roars up the path established by the leader stroke. Thus the lightning stroke generally goes from the highest object on the ground up to the cloud. It looks as if it happens the other way around-from the cloud to the ground. The human eye cannot follow the formation of a lightning stroke because it shoots skyward in about one-millionth of a second. What the eye sees is the electrical discharge of as much as 100 million volts of electricity, which heats the surrounding air to a temperature five times hotter than the surface of the sun - 30 000 degrees C (54,000°F).

This is the slowest lightning strike recording i have ever seen.  I mean, most    
cameras used for lightning strikes have to sacrifice the FPS rate for brightness    
adjustments, and some of them don't have a good FPS rate to begin with.  But the    
camera used to film this must be fukken awesome.

Relifags must be really confused today because of the science posts, poor them.

FunnyJunk knows very well how to take something funny/interesting, make a channel for it and then beat the crap out of it until it becomes stupid and unfunny/boring.

This isn't science, it's astronomy

It's not astronomy if it's not in space dumbass.
