These pics were taken one second apart
Lightning is REALLY BRIGHT

That’s the thing though, this isn’t lightning. The photos were both taken in daytime, the right photo being the normal condition. What you’re seeing in the left photo is a darkning strike.
Darkning is 50,000 times more rare than lightning, in fact most storms will never have a single instance of it. But when static charges between clouds become so energized that the electricity begins to form its own gravity, a black hole like the one created at CERN is briefly formed, sucking up all the light in the area and resulting in a brief “unflash” of darkning.
Less dangerous than lightning, Darkning lasts for a shorter time and you’d have to be within the event horizon to be harmed by it. Despite thousands a year dying of lightning strikes, only one man has ever been recorded as killed in a darkning strike, and that man was Lewis Caroll, author of Alice in Wonderland, which many historians believe he wrote based on that strange and fatal experience.

how would his writing be based on an event that killed him? care to explain, liar???

Firstly, how dare you call me, a fact blog, a liar? Fact blogs on tumblr have been an institution of truth since 1908.
And I’d be happy to explain- Lewis Carroll often worked as a ghostwriter. Duh…

Anonymous asked: O love how your darkning post links to a wikipedia article about a videogame and people still don't question the premise. It's like tumblr refuses to do any kind of fact-checking. I mean yes you gave them an obvious clue with lewis carol being already dead, but some people are still so thick...
