The photo above shows an eerie lightning display above Bad Mergentheim, Germany. On this early June evening, a serenade of marches and classical pieces were played by torch-light was conducted by an orchestra of the German army. It’s a tradition here. The show went on despite the scary skies. I wonder if perhaps in a lab unseen, Franky is receiving a jolt of juice from one of these bolts.
