Fun facts about slugger Jose Canseco and lightning:
  • Lightning is seen as a bright flash, often coming down toward Earth. Canseco is neither bright nor down-to-earth.
  • Worldwide, lightning occurs about 40 to 50 times a second. Canseco turns the light switch on and off 40 to 50 times a minute for his own entertainment.
  • Fear of lightning is called "astraphobia." Change "tra" to "swipe" and you have the word for the fear of Jose Canseco.
  • Lightning strikes can cause, among other things, burns to humans. Jose Canseco has burned most of the people he's known.
  • Lightning creates ozone, which carries a distinct, metallic smell. Canseco also carries a distinct smell, similar to hair gel mixed with Chef Boyardee-brand ravioli.
