In which I use my critical thinking and deductive skills to determine that an escaped horse of the apocalypse is responsible for some weird lightning.

I observed a most curious meteorological phenomenon the other day.
Skye Smith-Gill @UnseenLetterbox
@chirpinator okay.. what was this curious meteorological phenomenon. Are you sure it wasn't meteor-illogical?
Chirpinator @chirpinator
@UnseenLetterbox It was pretty damn meteor-illogical, alright.

'Twas ambling down the side streets of Tokyo at dusk, pondering the gray sky above, when all of a sudden...
Chirpinator @chirpinator
...a flash of lightning set the sky ablaze!
Chirpinator @chirpinator
@AngryBlackLady Just one, and his horse had some bigass feet.
Chirpinator @chirpinator
I awaited the customary growl of thunder to answer this heavenly illumination. But none came!
Chirpinator @chirpinator
Minutes passed. No thunder. Then, just as my legs were getting stiff...POW! Another explosion of blazing light!
Chirpinator @chirpinator
And still, no thunder. The heavens were spiting my sense of natural order.
Chirpinator @chirpinator
A quick buzz onto the old Twitter, and a few friends suggested that I might have witnessed "heat lightning." Seems sensible enough...
Chirpinator @chirpinator
...however! This lightning was intelligent! I kid you not, it struck at the *precise* moment when I was at my most flummoxed.
Chirpinator @chirpinator
My conclusion? One of the horses of the apocalypse has gotten loose.
Chirpinator @chirpinator
Not one of the horsemen, mind you, but one of the horses. And I'm gonna guess that it was the little known Horse of Pyromania.
Chirpinator @chirpinator
You see, what I was in fact witnessing was a giant horse boogieing up in the heavens. Every time it twisted about, lightning flew.
Chirpinator @chirpinator
And being a horse of the apocalypse, it *knew* that its little jig was flummoxing me. Hence the perfect timing.

This concludes my lesson in scientific reasoning for the day. I hope you all feel edified.

Scratch that. My lesson concludes with a gunpowder recipe courtesy of @UnseenLetterbox: http://bit.ly/oxw889

You know, because you never know when you might need to throw a party for an apocalypse horse!
