If you have a wife or girlfriend who always complains about the unfair advantages men have over women, here’s one title they can gladly have. According to a new survey, guys are far more likely to get struck by lightening than women.

According to a new survey from the Chicago Tribune, of the 648 people killed by lightning in the United States over the past 12 years or so, 82 percent were guys. 82 Percent, what the hell are men doing to get struck so much?

Sad news is that the trend is continuing this year as the six lightning-related deaths in 2011 have all been male. So ladies, enough complaining about unfair wages and the “glass ceiling.” Guys are getting mowed down by 300,000 volts of lightning at every turn.
