I doubt they'll continue to make the other books into movies, much like they've completely botched the movie versions of my favourite books His Dark Materials , but considering a major part of the plot was removed, it doesn't really matter much. The creator and cast shared their feelings on the big night and the power of love.

The third strike, a year later, happened while Sullivan was off-duty.
He was tending to his garden at home when lightning hit a nearby transformer and jumped to his shoulder, knocking him down and burning him lightly. Number four set poor Sullivan on fire. It was my hair on fire.
The flames were up six inches. August 7, , brought the fifth strike. Again, Sullivan was in a park truck, and saw storm clouds coming. All too aware of his track record, the ranger tried to outrun the lightning. Big mistake. It even knocked off one of his shoes, leaving the lace tied. Sullivan was walking along a park trail in when he was struck a sixth time. It was the final straw for the Spark Ranger—he retired five months later.
Unfortunately, the lightning found him anyway. On June 25, , Sullivan was trout fishing when the hair on his arms bristled. This strike to the head burned his chest and stomach and caused hearing loss in one ear.
To top off Lucky Seven, Sullivan ran into a black bear on the way back to his car. The odds of getting struck by lightning seven times are 4. When Sullivan did pass away, it was a bullet, not a bolt, that did him in.

He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in at the age of 71, perhaps tired of constantly fearing a fatal strike. In the late s, the rumor started circulating among Beatles fans that "the Cute One" had died in a car crash in The band felt bad about lying to loyal fans, however, and began leaving clues in the album artwork to tip them off. One such "clue" was the entire cover of the Abbey Road album.
Fans deduced that a simple picture of the band crossing the road was actually meant to depict a funeral procession. John, in white, was the clergyman. At some point during the brief shoot, he kicked them off. Next, there is the specimen. Not only is Samad's proudly preserved fish far too large, it bears no signs of having inserted itself anywhere. The doctor claimed that he had snipped the spines off the fish, which would have been crucial if the fish were to be removed successfully, but the preserved fish was entirely unblemished. Still, Spotte is unwilling to entirely write the incident off.
Nevertheless, when pressed on how likely he feels a candiru attack actually is for someone urinating in the Amazon, Spotte describes the chances as being "about the same as being struck by lightning while simultaneously eaten by a shark". What emerges from their writing is a nightmarish picture of riverside communities scared to go near the water for fear of candiru attack. They describe infrastructure, rituals and medical procedures, all established to deal with these parasites. Unless we write these men off as liars, it is important to investigate their claims further.
In her analysis of candiru literature , Bauer asks a seemingly obvious question: do these parasites pose a threat to the millions of people visiting the Amazon region every year? In doing so, she compares the experience of travelling in the Amazon now with how it was in the 19th century. For those intrepid early travellers, penetrating the dense forest and hearing endless stories of bizarre creatures, it would have been difficult to sort fact from fiction. Language barriers would also have been a problem. A lingua franca is widely used in the Amazon, based on the language spoken by the Tupi, one of the area's most important ethnic groups.
The European interlopers may well have spoken it, but we can safely assume they were not fluent. In this scenario, writes Bauer, "there is still a great potential for misinterpretation of language, postures, and gestures.
