As part of the sudden increase in shark attacks and lightning strikes– at least from the media’s point of view– comes the story of seven-year-old Kaylee Shriner of Tonganoxie, Kansas. She was asleep in her bed when lighting hit the house, blew through her ceiling, and struck her bed. The bed, which apparently wasn’t manufactured to withstand a lightning strike, promptly burst into flame. She jumped out of bed and told mom and dad, and according to her statement to the media:

“Dad said a bad word, and then Mom heard it, and then she went upstairs, and then she said a bad word, and there were lots of bad words around here.”

Ahh, kids are so much fun because they’re so brutally honest…
