Nope… never, NEVER AGAIN, will I ever sit on the toilet during a thunderstorm.
I’m not trying to take a lightning bolt straight to the junk…
Firefighters from the Okmulgee Fire Department in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, responded to one of the strangest calls they’ve probably ever received at the Oxford Apartment complex, according to FOX23.
Apparently, lightning struck the apartment, went through the roof, and struck the toilet, practically shattering it into a million pieces.
The only thing I could think of that would send lightning straight to the toilet is the fact that anything metal can be a lightning rod in a storm, and the toilet must’ve somehow been metal.
However, if that was the case, wouldn’t we be hearing about this stuff more often?
You would think.
Check it out:
Luckily enough, nobody was living in the apartment yet, but how are you gonna sell somebody on an apartment that had a toilet that got struck by lightning?
Nobody wants to think about the possibility of a commode being a one way ticket to the afterlife.
I mean, Elvis died on the pot, but still… what a shitty way to die.
But you know what’s worse? Getting assassinated by a man with a spear hiding inside your toilet, which believe it or not, used to be fairly common way back in the day.
Jaromir, Duke of Bohemia, was assassinated by someone under the toilet with a spear, as was Wenceslaus III of Bohemia in 1306.
The more you know…
Anyways, now that we’re going off the rails on this blog, here’s a video on Medieval Toilets.
