Sunday Citation

“After the fourth time Roy Sullivan was struck by lightning, he allegedly told a reporter that a higher power was trying to kill him. That’s ridiculous. A higher power was not trying to kill him. That would have been easy. Every last one of us is bagged in the end. The more impressive trick is striking someone with lightning seven times and keeping them alive.”

-Nate Wilson in Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl (2009), p. 86
