  1. Reason – Men have a higher iron content than women. Not only does this increase probability of lightning strikes, it gives them a better sense of direction. They don’t need to stop and as for directions.

  2. hmmm – I suppose that could explain the fact that the person who sustained the most lightning strikes was a man

  3. sense of direction – While it si true that men genreally have a better sense of direction, some women have an equally good sense of direction. Theyre’ just less stubborn about asking for directions because who wants to wander in the middle of frickin’ no where?

  4. really? – well thats because women are more important then men …..they go through more shyt then guys do …. so thats why god made lightening hit guys more!!! LOL

  14. STOP!!!! – I wish Random Person and Mr_Rogers would be struck with lightning so they wouldn’t send messages NINE TIMES!!!!! Also, who says women go through more crap than men? What about all the men who are victems of PMS mood swings and bitching? What about getting KICKED IN THE BALLS?! Sorry to dissapoint you, but men are just as important as women (more important in some countries, but i don’t belive in that philosiphy).

  15. iron? – is it the iron content that makes them more important? is there a correlation between iron and importance? do the important men in those countries have more iron? will women who take iron supplements attract more lightning? in fact, if the common denominator is direction, do maps attract lightning? or does lightning hit the ground because it looks like a map [with iron in it?] deep thoughts…

  16. Real Reason – The real reason that men are struck by lightning more is because men are on sporting event fields more. This is a true fact that most men are struck by lightning on a golf course. Women must have enough sense to go inside while men don’t.

  17. And…? – Who cares what the reason is. It’s funny!! Oh is THAT why there are more women in the world? Men get struck by lightning more? Wow. Thats awesome.

  18. Its in the blood – the reason men have more blood is because its in their blood, and since women have their time of the month, they lose more blood, and therefore iron. so if they take iron supplements, itll only go back to normal. whoop dee do.

  19. Pshh….Whatever – Yeah, becuase men have sooooooo muuch iron in they’re bodies that get struck by lightning sooo very often. And who says men are important?? Excuse me but Woman are more important then Men. Oh yeah we lose “iron” becuz we get periods. But we have periods in order become pregnant, and who go through hell when we we are in labor? So what sperm fertilizes the ovary, ohhh i see you’re point….hehe

  20. blah – guys get struck by lightning more because of some reason or other w/e, but women are gon live longer anyway. we live 3 years longer than guys. to the people who asked “is that why there are more women than men?”…well there’s your answer.

  21. ;) – women do go through more then men. if you equate the pain of menstrial cramps to the pain of getting “kicked in the nads” women would get kicked EVERY month! and women, if you are thinking of taking iron supliments either to have a better sence of direction, be important, or to be hit by lighting more frequently, think twice, because high iron can cause intence stomach pain!!! not fun!! ;)
