    I bought a new shirt today which is made of polyester. I'm getting ready to go out and experience a series of sparks flying out of my hands. I dismissed my first idea about turning into a comic book superhero and put it down to the shirt. I'm sitting here with sparks flying everywhere, I'm like a walking, talking powerplant :o

    How do I resolve this without changing the shirt? I can't even go close to the speakers without them emitting random zaps of interference.

    Thanks.

    Ground yourself on a radiator or something? Wear different shoes?

    Ps. Don't touch any PC components.

    Heh heh

    The shirt is rubbing against the top of my trousers so I guess that's what is causing the static. I'm afraid to open the door now :o

    That's given me an idea. I'll just attach an anti static wrist band to the bar when I'm out :D I'll have to drink from bottles though so that I have some containers which will be needed due to the inability to leave the bar ;)

    My only other pair of clean trousers are made of exactly the same stuff. I can picture trying to get off with a woman tonight, I'd go in for the kill and end up shooting her across the room at warp 7 :D

    I fear the effects will be similar to that of electrolysis. I like my manly hairy look in that department.

    Having read this thread and carefully considered the evidence placed before me, I think the initial "Super Hero Transformation" idea is the most plausible explanation.

    It would also explain the 36 hour erection. I had to come home in the end, I was electrocuting anyone I made contact with. I enjoy the forums better anyway :D

    What is the reason behind getting a shock from a car door? I quite often get that when i get out the car and close the door.

    Haha, this is incredible!

    Hmm, tried washing those clothes a few times? Maybe separately? Hmm, but it must be funny having all these sparks fly!
