    Nice link, thanks Wolram. :approve: I added this to the Ball Lightning section of the Credible Anomalies Napster above.

    I think I have an old post somewhere around here in which I suggested the form of ball lightning should be a thickened torus. I suggested it because the torus is the only two dimensional manifold that can support a nonvanishing vector field.
