What is an easy and efficiant way to harvest static electricity?


Technically, it's no longer static while you are in the process of harvesting or using it.

Wikipedia lists a number of different electrostatic generators, including the ever-popular Van de Graaff. Instructables, of course, has directions for building your own.
Make a Leyden jar. They store static electricity very, and depending on the size, you can even make good size (5 in) sparks!!
Rubbing your back against a plastic chair or if you have carpet and slippers rub those together
