If there's one thing we can all agree on it's hell, apparently. Whether it's the Upside Down of Stranger Things, or the hell-on-Middle-Earth that is Lord of the Rings' Mordor, we love to talk about it, and we love to see it in action. So it's pretty easy to see how everyone leapt to all these conclusions when they saw this tweet of a tree struck by lightning.
Alabama meteorologist James Spann first tweeted the photo taken by Twitter user @jkroxie. It's the remains of a tree struck by lightning in Baldwyn, Mississippi, after intense storms and three reported tornadoes. Since the tree was dead on the inside, but moist from rains on the outside, when lightning struck it, its core caught fire before its bark did, leaving a terrifying look at the embers within, reminiscent of Sauron's peering eye from Lord of the Rings or the Hellmouth from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
