You're at a party. There's balloons, music, dancing, and a carpet, when suddenly — blackout. What causes this? And where does the electricity go? We're all familiar with the effects of static electricity. Just rub a balloon over your head, and you've got yourself a fancy new hairdo. Then touch a doorknob and ZAP! You're electrified when a small lightning bolt shoots through your body. This is especially common during wintertime when an innocent kiss can take a, well, shocking turn. Is static electricity standing still? Or indeed moving? We've gotta know!
