    How many times have you joked about getting zapped because you were doing something the gawds wouldn't like ?

    Well.......

    TAKE THE HINT !!!!! :)

    There's some more background to this article that comes close to provoking a religious debate, so please PM me if you want it.

    Looks like someone is unhappy about the movie. but...
    if the powers that be are unhappy about this, why wouldn't they go after the director or producers?
    Just my strange brain working again. I don't know, maybe they are next.

    useless bit of info on lightening...if you get struck your chances go up by quite a bit on getting struck again.

    I am interested in seeing this movie made and to watch it because of attempts to censor it.

    FYI: Among other cultures, being struck by lighting is not a negative thing but a positive thing. Not necessarily a Zeus thing.

    I'd like to know how having that much electricty ram through you would be a positive thing. From what I hear, it doesn't feel too good.

    USELESS FACTS: :p
    Odds of being struck by lightening: 1 in 10,000,000.
    Odds of winning the Lottery: 1 in 230,000,000.
    Odds of having a royal flush: 1 in 649,739.
    Odds of becoming a millionaire in a casino: 1 in 600,000.
    Odds of getting in a car accident: 1 in 7,000.
    Odds of being in a plane crash: 1 in 1,000,000
    Odds of being hit by an asteroid: 1 in 20,000

    (this gives slightly different odds on some)
    You're just as likely to die by falling out of bed then you are to get struck by lightning; each is a 1 in 2,000,000 chance.
    You have a 1 in 3,000,000 chance of being killed by a snake.
    The number of possible ways of playing just the first four moves on each side in a chess game is 318,979,564,000.
    In 1950, at the Las Vegas Desert Inn, an anonymous sailor made 27 straight passes (wins) with the dice at craps. The odds against such a feat are 12,467,890 to 1. The dice today are enshrined in the hotel on a velvet pillow under glass.
    The odds of someone winning a lottery twice in four months is about one in 17 trillion. But Evelyn Marie Adams won the New Jersey lottery in this period during 1985-86.
    Odds of being killed by a dog: 1 in 700,000.
    Odds of dying while in the bath tub: 1 in 1,000,000.
    Odds of being killed by space debris: 1 in 5 billion.
    Odds of being killed by poisoning: 1 in 86,000.
    Odds of being killed by freezing: 1 in 3 million.
    Odds of being killed by lightening: 1 in 2 million.
    Odds of being killed in a car crash: 1 in 5,000.
    Odds of being killed in a tornado: 1 in 2 million.
    Odds of being killed in a plane crash: 1 in 25 million.
    Your chances of dying of panic are equal to your chances of getting hit by lightning, winning the lottery, AND being in a plane crash, all in the same day. (I'll remember that next time I ride on X at Magic Mountain) ;)

    Odds of being injured by a toilet seat in your lifetime: 1 in 6,500. [face_laugh] "Attack of the killer toliet seat"??? :p
