    You walk across the rug, reach for the doorknob and..........ZAP!!! You get a static shock.

    Or, you come inside from the cold, pull off your hat and......BOING!!! Static hair - that static electricity makes your hair stand straight out from your head. What is going on here? And why is static more of a problem in the winter?

    To understand static electricity, we have to learn a little bit about the nature of matter. Or in other words, what is all the stuff around us made of?

    In the winter, dry skin can cause you to get more of those static shocks.

    You just have to release the static electricity before touching doorknobs are other metal objects. To do this, be sure to shuffle your feet rapidly just before contact with the metal object. Works like a charm. icon_biggrin.gif

    Always use fabric softner sheets when drying clothes in the dryer. This helps in making clothes less prone to static. Liquid softener does not do the same.

    For jackets as well as clothes..etc you could use Static Guard

    Move to south Florida.

    Lightning
    ...Lightning is a dramatic natural example of static discharge....The static charge in air typically breaks down in this way at around 10,000 volts per centimeter (10 kV/cm) depending on humidity...

    Static discharge in space exploration
    ...Due to the extremely low humidity in extraterrestrial environments, very large static charges can accumulate, causing a major hazard for the complex electronics used in space exploration vehicles...

    Energies involved
    ...Low relative humidity increases the charge buildup; walking 20 feet (6.1 m) on vinyl floor at 15% relative humidity causes buildup of voltage up to 12 kilovolts, while at 80% humidity the voltage is only 1.5 kV...

    I always get a huge shock from touching the handle on the dairy case at Safeway.

    Maybe that's why there are always fat women standing in front of the milk, just staring at it.
