Physics teacher: One I was on the plane and I saw some lightning between clouds in the air. It was like fireworks, so pretty!

Class: So didn't you feel uncomfortable at all that you were in a metal thing in the air in a thunderstorm?

Physics teacher: Why would I be? A plane is in a cage, it is an insulator... (insert explanation about physics)... so the only risk is really rare, and is that the plane could catch on fire, but that's not going to happen.

Class: What about the people who DIDN'T know this on the plane...?

Physics teacher: How could they not have liked the lightning show?
