Yes, I don't blow over easily in the wind!
That's pretty much the same concluson I came too. I'll have to limit my barefooted frolics to soft grassy lawns and warm sandy beaches.
I've heard of the electrical thing for years now. I haven't read in depth the science behind it but my work involves high voltage electronics and I have lots of pricey measurement equipment at my disposal. So it is interesting to me. I'll have to read up on it.
There's lots of argument about accurate ways to measure electrical potentials that humans may store capacitively. Since our skin basically acts as a resister, we do not pick up the full potential of environmental charging and we continually partially discharge to grounded objects we are near to or making contact with.
Since current flowing during this charging and discharging is below the reaction level (about .5/1000 of an Ampere), we are generally not even aware of it. Sometimes we are (like when we walk across a rug and touch something at a lower potential and discharge into it painfully).
It's best to not get me started... I'm sure I've blown many dates about the time they ask, "so what do you do for a living?"
But no matter, there is an undeniable feeling of well being touching the Earth. Swimming in the ocean also provides this, in an efficient form. Lakes too and rivers. Pools too I imagine.
