Not much more to add here, I've just always wondered if static electricity was discussed in any Chazzal or Rishonim. Someone from those times must've gotten a good zap and I'm wondering what they had to say about it.
EDIT: Birshus Double AA. To clarify, I am not necessarily looking for a halakhic discourse on the subject. But being that there was always available glass and fur and silk and other common household items that aid in the production of static electricity, I'm wondering if any of our great Rabbis ever discussed experiencing just such a phenomenon. Whether it was an unexpected spark, or a piece of paper sticking to a glass cup. Anything that would have seemed curious. Perhaps they might have even given an explenation. Considering that words like ברק, חשמל, פולתא דנורא abound in all our holy books I would think if someone experienced anything close to the aforementioned it would peak his curiosity. Various other natural phenomenon have found their place in our sfarim. Rashi and Rashba both mention magnets for instance. And considering that amongst our Rabbis there have been alchemists and mention of alchemy for almost a millennia, scientific curiosity was not something they would shy away from. So perhaps this was mentioned in a professional, scientific way. This is what I seek. Someone mentioning something.
