When I was a kid I fried an Original IBM PC's CGA card by taking off my sweater before sitting down and then touching the case/power switch. Electricity shot out my finger like a tesla coil or jacob's ladder or the Emperor from Star Wars. Computer turned on and booted but no picture. Dad took it to get it fixed at work; fried card!
Ever since then I respect static, but truely it's nowhere near the danger it used to be.
