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.

How old are you, you don't know what static electricity is?

GuilinRaf:

Growing up in Puerto Rico, I did not experience static electricity until I went to college in St Paul, MN.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
