What is freakier is that everything on the ground sends out its own seeking leader and it's when a leader from the air meets a leader coming up from the ground that you get a giant electrical discharge. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning#Leader_formation

Incredisome! O_o As said, the searching it performs is something I've never seen before. It gives lightning a different character, a bit more evil as it actively locates a target by itself, stretching out, but also a bit mechanical as it uses a premade path once it has located where to go... I got to stop watching this now, I can feel it approaching my back!
