Conan, you are not alone!

I have a huge problem with static electricity. I get shocks off everything - and I give shocks to other people to the extent that you can actually see a blue spark leap between me and the other person. When I used to work in retail, handing over the change would be a nightmare - I used to pray that no-one with a pacemaker would pick my checkout.

I once (no, tell a lie, it has happened a few times) had a huge shock off a metal filing cabinet at work - the entire office heard the crack made by the spark, and it burned my fingers. I can't wear digital watches, because they stop. I have shorted out PCs. The worst thing is kissing, have you ever had an electric shock to the lips? I always try to ground myself by touching wood or plastic before I touch anything metal, or another person - it hurts both of us. Synthetic fibre carpets are my enemy, they really build up the static.

Once I was on a flight, the cabin lights were out and I had one of those synthetic blankets they give you on overnight flights. It crackled every time I shifted - one of my travelling companions told me that they could see the sparks coming off me.

And yes, I have a lot of bad hair days.

Hey, I'm just electric

When I was a kid, I would scoot through the house on my bedroom shoes all over the carpet. When I could feel the energy coursing through me, I would go over to my light switch and put my finger about an inch away. A lightning bolt of blue energy would come out nd sting my finger! It hurt like hell, but was the coolest thing that a kid like me could do!

I have had no other electrical powers like the ones you mentioned above, but I do know that I need to ground myself on something before kissing my wife...unless I am feeling evil and wanna get back at her for something...~hehe...

Wicked Larry!
At least it's not just me that gets this, I was a little embarrassed mentioning it!

Maybe you are special.

I just know that I have to keep in contact with the car door before I touch the ground.
