I bet commentator Jason-what’s-his name will say he once saw the Statue of Liberty get struck by lightning 601 times annually, saw 21 volcanoes eruptions worldwide, and/or ate 351 different shapes of pasta.
Here is the answer to how many times the Statue of Liberty is struck by lightning from the National Park Service.
“Does the Statue of Liberty get struck by lightning? Yes! Although the Statue is grounded through the massive concrete and granite base she stands on; the Statue gets struck many times each year. Just how many is not known. The Statue’s height and the conductive material she’s made of, copper, makes it a structure of choice for lightning strikes.”
600 times in a year would mean that it is struck about 1.6 times per day on average.
Those Italians must be really bored.
I wonder if that includes the various novelty pastas ( smiley faces, cartoon characters, etc.)?

20 volcanos at any given time? You got to be kidding.
I ate one shape of pasta 350 times
I guess those volcanos are in places no one cares about considering almost none of them make the news!
The main pasta, spaghetti, is not made, it grows on trees.
Miss Liberty is just another lightning rod but more attractive! ;o]
350 shapes of pasta, and in the store we get a choice of about 10. Woo!
(Granted, it would be hard to stock all 350…)
Lately, it seems to be getting hit by Bolts of Darkening…
What does a different pasta shape contribute to the dish it’s used in?
Finding just the right pasta is like looking for a noodle in a haystack.
You gotta keep that torch lit somehow.
And the 21st is my ex.
Take care and gesundheit.

I believe it!
“Oh yes: a bolt of lightning into a huge copper conductor. I thought you lived in a school.”
Bunch of number facts today!
With some batteries and a voltage regulator, NYC could put a dent in its electric bills…
20 volcanos at one time? Earth has a bad case of indigestion!!
15 more, and they will have 365 shades of pasta, one for each day of the year.
