From msn.com: the Morlock family was driving home through a terrible rainstorm to Church Wells, Utah (great name, by the way, considering the story), when one child piped up that he really hoped they would get hit by lightning. From his mouth to, well, you know where we are going with this. The lightning blew out three of the family's SUV's tires, the electrical system, and the antenna. Fortunately, no one was hurt. On the positive side, according to the family, apparently the energy from the strike charged up some of its cellphones. Now, I don't understand how that's possible--I would have thought that lightning would fry cellphone electronics, just the way it fries car electronics. Maybe someone can enlighten me (okay, I'll stop with the puns). At any rate, the Morlocks apparently caught the event on video, which is good for insurance purposes, and the young Morlock who wished for a lightning strike will undoubtedly never wish for one again.
This sort of thing is why some species eat their young (just so it's clear--I'm kidding...not suggesting anyone should do away with or squelch children with imaginations...Geez).
