When you narrowly escape something horrible, you tend to take on one of two mindsets. The first: “Whoa! That was close. I must be really lucky.” Or the second: “Holy crap! Someone or something is out to get me. I better be careful from now on.”
I’m not sure what camp this YouTuber falls into, but I’m leaning toward the former. If I narrowly survived an almost direct lightning strike like that, I might start thinking that I was on a lucky streak.
On the other hand, maybe the gods have cursed this guy and they’re trying to get him. I read somewhere that Zeus was actually a pretty lousy shot with his lightning bolt.
