You know what nobody ever tells young kids? That someday your genitals might save your life. But that's exactly what happened to Zoran Jurkovic, 41, of Croatia.

Cyclist struck by lightning saved by his genitals because life is magical sometimes.

Zoran was cycling through his town, Petrovci, listening to some tunes with not a care in the world. Suddenly, a storm hit. He began to rush home, but not soon enough. A bolt of lightning hit Zoran (hopefully just as "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey came on). Instead of flowing through his body in the traditional manner, starting in his head and ending in his organs, which would have killed him, the electricity went through his head, along the path of his headphones on the left side of his body, down to the small radio clipped to his belt, and finally exiting his body at the first possible place: his penis. He told The Daily Mail:

I saw black clouds and flashes of light appear in the sky and thunder could be heard booming across the nearby fields. I tried to ride faster to get to shelter in time, but I was too late.

Doctors said that because Zoran was wearing rubber boots, the current of electricity was unable to "earth," which would have had been very bad for Zoran and his incredibly lucky genitals.

He says his friends tease him, insinuating his penis had extraordinary ability now, but he says, "...it doesn't."

Not for nothing, as of the most recent reporting, Zoran is single and lives with his mother.
