Lightning strikes Empire State Building — not once, not twice, but three times in a row

From LikeCool: "Caught three direct strikes to the Empire State Building lightning rod after midnight on 4/13/11 [yesterday]. I actually saw a fourth direct hit, but sadly wasn't filming at the same time."

"Lightning never strikes twice in the same place" is now inoperative.

Note by the videographer on YouTube: "As for the time stamp on the video, I uploaded it at 1:39 a.m. Eastern time on 4/13. YouTube videos are time stamped with Pacific time, which was 10:39 p.m. on 4/12."

"lightning never strikes twice in the same place" was wrong the first time it was said and has been ever since.
