    I'm in the middle of an enormously long and unbroken row of terraces so I'd have to be very unlucky for it to single me out. Electrical storms are very rare around here anyway.

    My father had a work colleague whose house was actually struck by lightning. It demolished a good part of the house. Some broken electronic gadgets were the least of his worries. Fortunately no-one was in the house at the time.

    Landlord sent a sparky around, says all is fine, then why have 3 amps blown on me? Me think sparky just came around and made himself tea. Anyway I bought one of these for the amp socket. Only 20, can't be arsed to spend more than that. Thanks to Primalsea.
