explanation time:   
   
those little lines that are spreading out everywhere are called step leaders, and theyre actually tunnels of plasma that electrons can travel through.   
they come down from the cloud and branch out in segments until one gets close to the ground.   
when one of them is close to the ground, the positively charged earth (the earth is positively charged during a thunderstorm because the massive amount of negative charge at the bottom of a cloud actually pushes the electrons at the surface deeper into the earth, so the top is positive) sends up another step-leader type thing called a streamer, and streamers are positive. the streamer meets the step leader that is closest to the ground, and then there is a complete path of plasma from the cloud to the ground.    
the electrons flow through this plasma at the speed of light. this action is the only part of the video that actually goes at the speed of light. the step leaders that were attached to the one that connected to the ground send their electrons back the way the came, into the primary plasma tunnel, and they also go to the ground. the plasma tunnel remains in place, and more flows of electrons follow the first one, which is why the lightning bolt looks like it's glowing.   
   
ITS ******* COOL AS ****

HOLY *********** MONKEYS ON A BUS.

Did you know that Nikola BADASS ************ Tesla used to bathe in Electricity?
He was all "You know, **** your water, i don't need that ****, i bathe in Zeus's product while you gargle in Neptunes sweat."
You think that's hardcore? Think twice douche fag, **** gets more intense.

Nikola Tesla died without banging single chick... Because, who the **** needs dames? He didn't, and he was a hard ass awesome son of a bitch, and hard ass awesome sons of bitches need no dames, he was married to SCIENCE, and they ******* made mad sweet love every night in the lab, giving godly birth to Alternating Current, The Modern Electric Motor, X - Ray, Neon, Robotics, Wireless Communication Systems, Advanced Laser and Radar Technology and even STAR WARS TACTICAL WARFARE.

Science was his Bitch, the world was his bitch... But he didn't bragged about it, because **** YOUR SWAG, he had class.

He created a ******* monster Tower called "Wardenclyffe Tower" that was able to light up electronical equipment WIRELESSLY (That means, Without Wires you dick goblin), using only the Mother ******* air as the vehicle for Electricity.
You think that's ******* Amazing? No, i'l show you whats amazing you small minded vermin.
This Wardenclyffe tower, could also ELECTRIFY THE WHOLE ******* WORLD, using the Ionosphere to conduct electricity, using Earth's own rotation to get electricity. (That's ******* badass, Zeuz would cry in shame.)
That means, FREE ELECTRICITY, for everyone, everywhere, mother ******.

Yet this guy, a ruthless capitalist with ideas limited to user interface alone, is celebrated as "one of the greatest inventors ever".

Benjamin Franklin? Yeah, i got them Benjamins lol.
Nicolai Tesla? Isn't that the guy from Enemy At the Gates?
Tim Berners-Lee? Sorry i dont like his movies.
Microsoft made a tablet? Totally stole that idea from Apple.

Steve Jobs? OMG HE IS THE GREATEREST PERSON EVER. PLEASE EXCUSE ME WHILE I PISS MYSELF LIKE AN EXCITED DOG!

i think you are only seeing one side to this argument. did you know that he only took $1 every year as the CEO of apple, the least he was legally aloud to take?

I have seen plenty of phasets of the argument. The low cash payment allowed him to be compensated with company gifts, most notably a $90mil Gulfstream Jet. Infinitly more than he would have been payed in with a regular monthly paycheck. Besides, with the already 2-figure billion dollars invested, the cast off from that made him economically independable long before he returned to Apple in 1997.

Steve Jobs was as much a living billboard as he was anything else - he needed a flawless image in order to make Apples products market viable. As such, a yearly pay of $1 was worth much more in publicity than any cash payment would have been.

If you see my comment #516, you'll see that we very much agree that Seteve Jobs is indeed a glorified salesman.

Some of the loathing that i have for everyhting that he touches may rightfully be redirected towards the people exhalting him, not being able to see im for what he really was.

Topsy was considered a danger and was due to be executed ( Edison had no part in this ) .

How are you supposed to execute an elephant ? Electrocution was actually quite an efficient and effective method .

Plus , the thing he was trying to prove was that AC is dangerous............which it is and which he proved !!

lol, you're actually saying AC is dangerous? You know, the AC you're CURRENTLY using to post you ****? Oh, did you know they also gave Topsy arsenic, gave him copper layers under his feet?    
   
Seriously, you're a complete dumbass. Go be a troll somewhere else.

er...ac is dangerous...any current over .1 amp can kill you. body resistance can be as low as 300 ohms which puts any voltage over 30 into the 'dangerous' category.

for the same voltage, dc is more dangerous than ac because your heart will tend to 'seize' when zapped with a dc voltage and tend to 'fibrilate' when zapped with an ac.

when you get to higher frequencies, like 400hz...electricity tends to travel across the skin causing burns rather than through the body tissue.

tldr: ac is dangerous (at the right voltage)

Yes , you dumb idiot , AC is dangerous . Try touching a live wire right now . Go ahead , do it .

If you had DC , you wouldn't even have to hide the wires . You could even go as far as to use lines of conductive paint on your walls , touch them and still not die .

this makes entirely no sense...its not the voltage or the type of voltage that kills you...its the current flow...both ac and dc voltages would produce the same current flow through the same resistance. i=e/r
try touching a 120v dc wire right now...or better yet..just stick a 9v battery on your tongue...

Well, you could touch 1 MV, with a frequency of 1 MHz and you would be still alive

(07/11/2012) [-]
That because a high frequency ( 1 MHz ) high voltage current like that just would throw you away from the source .

But we don't use that in our homes now , do we ? And changing to mains line of 1 MV , 1 MHz wouldn't help as it would defeat the purpose of AC ( stepping down to usable voltage ) .
