The problem with attempting to store lightning as energy is the bursty nature of it.

Collecting a bunch of energy over a day, or an hour, or whatever is fine.

Collecting a bunch of energy in less than a second is gonna absolutely destroy virtually all infrastructure we can currently make.

So while it's theoretically possible to do, in practice it's not something we're ready for.

> How people wake up and regain alertness in the hours after sleep is related to how they are sleeping, eating, and exercising. Here, in a prospective longitudinal study of 833 twins and genetically unrelated adults, we demonstrate that how effectively an individual awakens in the hours following sleep is not associated with their genetics, but instead, four independent factors: sleep quantity/quality the night before, physical activity the day prior, a breakfast rich in carbohydrate, and a lower blood glucose response following breakfast.
