so, the other day I was at the local "kids science center" where they do all kinds of cool science stuff aimed at kids. It's a great day trip to get the kids into something fun, educational, and a wholesome family activity.
Anyway...i was carrying concealed.
And I saw them using the static electricity generator thingy. (the guys name it's named after escapes me currently)
but you've seen them. a human chain touches it, they turn it on, a static charge is built up, then the last person in the line gets quite a jolt of static as it discharges.
It got me thinking....I know that munitions in our military are often electrically fired and static can set them off.
How "statically safe" is our ammunition, which is impact fired? I played it safe and didn't go anywhere near the static generator, but it still got me wondering.
