Some people say "Lightning never strikes the same place twice" and that's just stupid. Earth is 4.54 billion years old. Think of all the lightning strikes that have occurred in that time. Even though the surface area of Earth is 196.9 million square miles, according the National Weather Service there are 100 lightning strikes hitting the Earth every SECOND. That's 8,640,000 per day. So if the Earth is 4.54 billion years old, that equates to one trillion six hundred fifty-seven billion one hundred million days. Multiply that by 8,640,000 and that’s a shit load of lightning strikes. Then take into consideration that Earth used to have a lot more lightning than it does these days and it’s hard to believe that a few lightning bolts have not hit the same exact spot twice. If in fact this was true and lightning could not hit the same spot twice then after awhile lightning would have hit every single square inch of this planet (if it hasn’t already). Because it could never hit the same place it would always be searching for the spots it had never hit and when it ran out of space there would be no more lightning. Obviously that’s a ridiculous notion. So when you think about it, this saying is pure whore’s crap.
