IIRC it's as simple as friction and socks on a carpet.

Only imagine a much larger carpet and some pretty big socks. Cosmic and solar radiation + the atmosphere/ozone/and natural magnetic shielding of a spinning metal core.

Earth would be the sock...

That is cool, but I still think that blue jets are the most amazing.

Hmmm. It looks a lot like regular lightning. Only slower.

you're rather quick

it is indeed regular lightning, but it has been slowed down with our regular lightning slower downer gun.

We developed this gun for those horribly awkward moments that you need a light, need some heat, or just need the power to run your flux capacitator.

it's soon to be on tv and we signed up billy mays to do the ads for us

it will be a huge hit

I would like to borrow the slower downer gun, Mr. J Diddy. To use on traffic, I mean. And this one girl I know from Boston who talks so damn fast you think her teeth are going to explode.
