But then you don't have "tactile feedback." 'Course, you can always make
sure the kids are nearby... ;-)
Dontcha just need to put a 1MegOhm resistor between the "Grounding Station"
(i.e. foil) and the earth ground connection?
Come to think of it, I should build a grounding station area near my
TV/stereo/TiVo area - getting off the couch and welding your finger to the
TV can't be good...
