Hello i was wondeing what makes a person fly back when hit with lets say a 
lightning bolt?  I know a funny or strange question, but i am curious, 
what makes electricity move the person?  is it that they are grounded and 
the person becomes a "blown fuse" if you will and throwing them back?  or 
what is it??  In general my question is, how do you make electrical energy 
or current move something with out touching it?  with no motor?  just the 
current and a material to move. thanks!
