Dude. WTF.
It hurts the EE in me to read it.

Frank Clewer, who was wearing a woollen shirt and a synthetic nylon jacket, was oblivious to the growing electrical current that was building up as his clothes rubbed together.

"We tested his clothes with a static electricity field metre and measured a current of 40,000 volts, which is one step shy of spontaneous combustion, where his clothes would have self-ignited," Barton said.

Firefighters took possession of Clewer's jacket and stored it in the courtyard of the fire station, where it continued to give off a strong electrical current.

Massive WTF indeed. It just does not make sense.

LOL, I doubt the original article was in the science section, but probably in the “offbeat” section.  And as long as it delivers the intended WTF moment (different from yours), it's all fine to me.  XD

For one, I wouldn't bash an article titled “Ex-President's Computer Destroyed by Computer Virus in Disguise of Adult Video Game” like “WTF, it's called a trojan, not a virus!”
