ive acytually TRIED to get something to die by continually zapping it with static from my hands as i walked around the room rubbing bowling shoes on teh carpet( this kind made all sorts of static)...the old sound card wouldnt die..im convincer that you have to have quite a large buildup of static to actually damage any components...

I've never used any kind of wrist-strap, or even really taken much of any static discharge precautions... and I've never once fried a component. Hell, I've seen blue static shoot from my hand into components before, and they were perfectly fine afterward. As long as they aren't powered on at the time.

They don't want you to snip off the end of a plug and start running it down the board but I did short my printer board out. I kept it plugged in stupid me and I started connecting this plug in it -some ribbon cable- and it made a spark never heard a sound from that printer again.
