A static shock is the jolt you experience when you have a buildup of static electricity and touch something. There are a few easy ways to experience a static shock. You can rub a balloon on your hair for a few seconds or you can take off your shoes, shuffle around the carpet in your socks, and then touch a doorknob. If you do it right, you’ll see a spark and feel a jolt. That’s a static shock. It doesn’t really hurt, but it feels weird and slightly uncomfortable. It’s more annoying than painful. You can use it as a weapon. Build up some static electricity and then zap your little brother. And repeat the process over and over again until he cries. Then do it some more and punch him in the shoulder if he threatens to tell on you. And then zap him again.
