The humidifier on our larger furnace conked out a few months ago, so we've had an extremely dry & staticky winter. I've been zapping everything I touch, including tap water.
I've received several painful jolts just plugging USB devices in. Surprisingly, none of our electronics seem to have been damaged by the frequent ESD this winter. I would've expected at least a reboot from some of the lightning bolts I've unleashed! Guess as long as your rig isn't built around an Asus 865PE motherboard, you're OK. 😉
