    Re: Can Your iPod Attract Lightning?

    Contrary to some urban legends and media reports, electronic devices don't attract lightning the way a tall tree or a lightning rod does.

    "It's going to hit where it's going to hit, but once it contacts metal, the metal conducts the electricity," said Dr. Mary Ann Cooper of the American College of Emergency Physicians and an ER doctor at University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago.
    The iPod didn't attract anything.
    It just provided an easy path for the lightning to follow over his body.
    Had he not been wearing the iPod he would have been struck by lightning anyway.
