Retired and loving it. If I'd have known about retirement befor I started my 40 year career with the government of Manitoba I'd have retired first. :)

August 30 1980
Lightning struck a Scarborough, ON, man while he stood in front of his basement apartment kitchen sink. The electricity travelled through his feet and hands. A bright flash in the sink hurled him 1 m into the air, but the only thing damaged was his watch, stopping at 11:50 AM. The victim received a nasty shock, felt dizzy, but was unhurt.
