Q: Has anyone else been feeling the electricity when you go out?


I'm not exactly sure what it is, but everytime I go out I always feel the electricity. Whenever somebody touches me it always happens. What can this be, is it something I have to watch out for?

That is called static electricity, and it does happen during dry spells on winter time.  The layers of cloth you put on to feel warm, as you move create friction aqnd build an electrical charge on you.  When you touch something, it will discharge and only then you will feel it.  It is normal, nothing to be worried about.
The only way to avoid it will be to tie a bare copper wire to your ankle and let it run on the floor, so the electrical charge will disipate as made,m and will not accumulate and give you a shock when touching something.  But since it is not practical, no one does.

A: This won't help overly with your situation, but maybe shed some light
A:This won't help overly with your situation, but maybe shed some light on what's required. When I had my criminal history thing done in Australia, it needed to be an original document, which was notorised by the Department of Foreign Affairs, before going to the Chinese consulate to be apostilled. Fortunately, our government has its shit together, and it was fairly painless... the Federal Police let me order the check online (and I even emailed them to request more copies, and I was replied to within hours saying "sure, no problem - but the max we can send is 3, which I'll send for free!) DFAT also knows the deal, and has a pretty quick turn-around time ("Oh, you want this for China - yeah, no problem!") My biggest problem was determining if the Chinese stamp could be done at any Chinese consulate, or ONLY at their embassy (in Canberra).... after LOTS of emails with incorrect information, the local consulate in Brisbane said "we have exaclty the same powers (red stamps) as the embassy, so yes, you can get it done with us!" But... it had to be done in person!!! So, no mail-ins... and as with all things Chinese, passports and other ID and such BS was needed!!! So - as NZT suggested - ask the Chinese embassy in London. -- Shining_brow
