Blame of thrones: Those viral vids of PC monitors going blank when people stand up? Static electricity from chairs

Radio Luxembourg....

"For those interested in evaluating a chair without an oscilloscope, Smith advised taking an AM radio, tuning it to static, and placing it under the chair in question. If sitting on the chair's cushion (or standing up) generates ESD, the radio may capture the signal as an audible crackle or pop"

Which suddenly reminded me of getting undressed from 1970's school uniforms and those horrible nylon shirts whilst listening to Radio Luxembourg on the bedside radio.... Was it really that long ago? Kids today, etc........
