Cell phones attract lightning! OMG

Hey, is this really possible?



If yes then should I avoid using mobile phones outside or even in-car?
Seems to me that there should be some danger signs on phones then...

Not even going to view it. Mythbusters covered this. They don't although they will allow lightning to pass through if hit directly.

Yes, this has happened before and I remember reading about such incidences, even though there are no scientific studies conducted to prove it.

I think YES

Reports says that cellphones have some kind to UV rays. So I think This one is possible and can harm anyone like this one.

I think the video is fake, but the cellphone attract lighting is true anyway. You should avoid using cellphone under a wide plain area without a single tower or trees under the rain.
