Really shocked I mean. A while back I posted in this thread , about how I was prompted by an anonymous co-worker to get a set of earphones for listening to music at work.
All is great and happy, except that I’m getting shocked by the earphones! It doesn’t happen when I’m just sitting down, and it’s not much of a shock, but it’s in my ear!
I can recreate it at will, and I’m pretty sure that it’s a result of static buildup. It happens as follows:
- I grab the chair arms,
- Keep my feet on the floor,
- Raise my butt off the chair,
My question, this being GQ and all, is this caused by static electricity? Or is it possible there’s some sort of short in my laptop. For the record, my earphones are plugged to the earphone receptacle on my Dell laptop.
