lightning conductor
 
My dad visited me from czech, he looked at my roof and said, you got 6 chimneys, but no a lightning conductor. I don't have 6 chimneys, those are vents. Plumbing is different there, only one central vent (usually).
But why we don't have lightning conductors here, they're mandatory there....

Michal,

There are two schools of thought. One says lightning rods/conductors channel lightning down to the ground. The other says they attract lightning that might otherwise strike somewhere else. :)

Electric systems over here are individually grounded.

I wired up a shop building not long ago and had to use three ground rods. One at the meter I installed on the utility pole, one at the building where the power lines went in for the panel inside, and a third rod at least six feet away from that one.

Gross overkill in my opinion, but it's not like a fella gets to pick and choose the electric company to use.
