Um, I don't think he was asking what static electricity is...given that we're all over the age of 6, I'm pretty sure we're all familiar with the concept.  I think he was asking why enough static electricity builds up in the body of the tC to  cause a shock every time one gets out of the car.
I just like insulting people's intelligence... plus, I'm a big geek and I thought that site was funny.
It's like watching Bill Nye the Science Guy!

Another sillier method: always drive barefooted, so the charge will leak away when you step outside the car. Not good in winter[/b]
I'm pretty sure it's illegal to drive barefoot.. at least in VA, but I'll have to check on that.

By the way, I figured it might be the floormats since some people are affected and others aren't.

I also tried to think of some lame joke about Scion-ce, but... yeah, I guess not.
