Hey! I actually knew that knot-tying trick /wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif I learned that from my sailing hobby. The chainplates (where the wires that hold up the mast attach to the boat) usually have copper cables run from them along the hull to the lead keel in the water or to some other anode to allow electricity to ground through. If you have sharp bends in the cable somewhere the lightening would shoot out of the cable into the water, blowing a big hole in the hull...

The perfect surge protecter is the AOL one you can get from Wal-Mart. It has a surge protecter, phone-cord protector, and 4 USB ports built into one side. Very good design and it has a warranty for up to $100,000 worth of damage if it fails. Costs $60.
