I love the internet.

I was watching Dirty Jobs, and Mike was helping a guy install lightning rods into this house that was built to resemble a castle. In the process, they talked a lot about various sorts of lightning. Researching it, I was looking at unusual triggers for lightning including volcanos, which led me to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pliny_The_Elder and his documented record of lightning during the 79AD eruption of Vesuvias. Well... my world geography sucks, so that had me hit google maps to go see Vesuvius and figure where it was. And lo there is street view in Naples round about Vesuvius. So I wandered around a little and found a business with a sign.. and as I finally zoomed in, I discovered that it was a restaurant. And the sign made me smile.
