    I think it quite unlikely; especially in this climate at this time of year. I've lived in the tropics since 1978 and have yet to experience a static electricity discharge, something that was quite common during my early years in California.

    This morning she had just finished her run and was wearing nylon shorts and a cotton t-shirt. She describes the "shock" as sort of a continuous tingle; not a one-time zap.

    Mike,

    It just means that you've still got that something that makes your wife tingle.

    Maybe that's why Apple hasn't had a large advertising campaign about using a portable Mac that can be an electrifying experience. Especially if wearing sympathetic fabric undies.

    That could be quite shocking.

    I'm not sure about that, as we have more than enough stuff to be shocked about with considering all the Left Coast politics we have to deal and contend with. That alone could be quite shocking to some.
