time for some godspeed methinks.
At least i think it is anyway, im pretty sure i just heard some thunder...
all the time in Minnesota. I saw a tornado lift some dude's garage into the air though..that was rad!
SoCal doesn't rain ...y'know, unless I've just washed my car. :(
Even though I was a math major I'd always try to calculate how far the lightning was by counting the thunder which follows...and end up with some weird number. "oh, it's 16,000 miles away...can that be right?"
i think its something like one second per kilometre or something.
I went to florida for two weeks once and there was one EVERY night. I liked that.
the speed of thunder = 344 m/s
Basically, you see lightning instantly and every 3 seconds after, the thunder is 1km away.
*notices how midwestern and boring minnesota looks*
i dotn think i want to...
actually, looking at this, i think sufjan stevens' Iowa is going to b hilarious. Expect emotional highs about corn....
