    I received this via email in a Power Point, and figured it would be good entertainment here. Several I've seen before as these images pass around the internet over the years, however many I have not seen before.

    Enjoy-

    This is about half of them. I'll hold off on the others if you guys are interested in seeing them and to not peg the bandwidth meter. :)

    Is it just me or does the third pic in the first batch look fake?

    I thought that too when I glanced at these pics this afternoon before leaving work. Pretty sure it was 'shopped.

    I thought that too - great minds etc...

    It has the look of a film studio about it. Maybe it's a still from 'The Guardian' or a similar film?

    Agreed. The POV for that is near the water's surface. That close to the water, in such a strong storm, I would expect much spray and mist. Too much to see the distant lightning stroke so clearly.
