You know static shocks are frequently around 10kV, right?

I had a friend who told the class when he was 16 that he still removes toast from the toaster with a metal knife while its still on and had no idea what the problem was with it

I do that sometimes on a morning when I'm still a little dead <.< Only with crumpets though, toast comes out easily.

My old computer was a hunk of shit, one time I turned it on with the on button (REALLY?) and it electrocuted me and knocked me across the room. Shit was cray. It was in the skip the next day.

DVD players man, you should unplug them when you load the disc tray back onto the rails.

I get static shocks off everything in the recording studio at university- the mixing desk, the computer, the chairs, the mics, even the windows.

I get so traumatised that I can't work anymore and have to leave.

I cry when I go up escalators and get an electric shock.

This is why when I was a little kid I stopped messing with my dads guitar.

From the strings/pickups or something I felt slight buzz/shock feelings.

It's torture, when you don't know if you're going to get a shock off something, or you know you will and you're trying to build up the courage to touch it.

Some people seem to think it's right to mock a person with this phobia.

My parents told me that when I was like 2, they found me with a pair of metal scissors mere seconds away from cutting the television wire.

Those McDonalds plastic play parks with all the tubes and stuff. Those were static shock habitats. I hated them.

Isn't it that amplitude that kills you and not the voltage?

Roughly 65mA (milliamps) = 0.065 across the heart is enough to kill.

Current(amperage), if you want to get technical.
Potential difference(voltage) can, if high enough, cause electricity to spark, which is awesome.

That's what I meant.

This is one of those moments where I realise I don't even have a fundamental understanding of something that's actually important to know.
