Static electricity can also cause uncomfortable shocks to a person who becomes "charged up". To experience this shock, drag your feet across a carpet in socks, then touch your finger to a doorknob. Static electricity can be responsible for the ignition of flammable gases, such as the vapors produced by petrol (gasoline) when you are filling your car.
