Unexpected Shocks Leave Retirees Without Adequate Income
Written By Mark Ohnsted
Last winter I was watching my nephew run across the carpet and his response to a static shock he received. There was of course pain and crying as a result of the static charge leaving his body. He immediately ran to his mother with the probable expectation that she would make the pain go away. As my sister tried to explain to a four year old the physics behind static electricity, I chuckled to myself not so much at the possibility that my sister may have thought she had a young Benjamin Franklin sitting on her lap, but that he would repeat this event for the remainder of his life – metaphorically speaking of course.
