Whenever I touch my Xbox 360 after playing it for a while, it shocks me. It's really fucking annoying. It hurts too. It's made my finger go numb at the tip a couple times. I put a piece of a static cling fridge calender over the drive eject button, and that works most of the time, but any time my finger is a little bit off the piece of plastic and touches the Xbox, it shocks me. It gets me if I touch a thumb drive I've had in there a while too. I think it might have something to do with me not being grounded to the console via a controller wire, because my controllers are wireless, unlike my GameCube ones, which I would never (or rarely maybe, I dunno) get shocked from. I have another problem too, I have this mouse pad with a wrist rest, but the mouse pad part of it is fabric on top, and always catches hairs and dirt and stuff, so I cut it off. I have the wrist rest taped to my keyboard tray now where it would normally be, but I'm using a Dell mouse pad that came with my computer. The problem is, ever since I've started using it (yesterday) my cursor has been twitching, anywhere from a few centimeters to going all the way to the edge of the screen. This happens constantly, probably once a minute. This is also driving me crazy. I've heard that having a mouse pad with colours and stuff like that all over it can make optical mice twitch. The one I'm using now is just different shades of grey, I don't think it should be this bad.
