Serious answers then...

No, they don't make Bri-Nylon anymore. It was simply the trade name of particular mix of nylon fibres used for making horribly scratchy "non-iron" shirts, and as you say women's undergarments.
Nylon itself is still made, obviously, but not under that name.

As for the static electric thing, well for all the amazing things science can explain, that isn't one of them.
It has a name, Triboelectric Charging. But just because they gave it a name doesn't mean they know how it works.
It's something to do with the transfer of electrons from one material to another, but the finest physics brains on the planet still have not got a proper explanation for how or why.
One thing that is known, is that the effect is much more pronounced in materials that are good insulators. Nylon is an excellent insulator, and so the old type nylon clothing got a reputation or giving everyone a "belt" at every opportunity.
In a modern car it's much more likely the seat covers are the cause of the charging, not your underwear.

One way to avoid the effect is to wear clothing made entirely from tinfoil, or a good suit of armour, and to touch the lightening conductor on the local church steeple (with your wonky finger, if necessary) before you shut the car door.
Hope that helps... ;)

Welcome to the forum Kromercap - thanks for your enjoyable reply.  :))

The seat covers may be a possibility as they were much cheaper than we mostly buy - but why is it only me that gets the shock?

I've actually started stuffing a hanky down my bra  :-? ( it's a bit embarrassing fishing it out  :-[  ) and I use it to shut my door - get some strange looks I can tell you !!  :o :-?

You can buy anti static straps you hang from your rear bumpers.

Rear bumpers  :-? :-? :-?

Just an example from ebay, you can get them much cheaper, or make your own  (y)

 -----but it did cause a chuckle when I asked a friend.

My car is not yet two years old,  I get a static shock when I've got out of it and touch my door to close it!
I've started using a handkerchief so I don't come into contact with it.
I mentioned it to one very dear elderly gentleman freind - his first response was

Do you wear Bri-nylon Panties  :-?  :-?  :-?

Pardon  :))  :))  :))

Two questions here actually - do they still make Bri-Nylon Panties and WHY does it do this???

Do you think it's because of my wonky finger   :)) :))

at 62 i am no spring chicken myself however without going into it i have witnessed and been subjected to way to many injustices in my life and i will not let it go, this matter is still in the second stage of the councils complaints process though it must be said they are dragging their heels i suspect that they are hoping i will hurry up and die of old age

Only 62 eh - lucky person - wish I was  ;)

Anyway, good luck with your mission hifimad, all I'm saying is don't let it take over and eat away at your mind and soul - these things we feel passionate about very often can x

TBH I reckon very few who voted really understood the implications of leave V stay.
We were fed so many different stories - its good - it's bad how were we supposed to really make  a sound choice which was the right choice - if the Politicians can't agree on In or Out ( shake it all about  ;D ) how can we??

I'm fed up of hearing about it on the news now - we are out ( well not quiet ) - so just get the @@@@ on with it.  ;)

if I read the post correctly, person/s were accused of shoplifting but no evidence  was found ? What happened 'after' is the main issue hifmad has ?

Please correct me if I' wrong.

Hifimad, you have two options here, one is to pursue this with the authorities in order to get the justice you feel should be done.

The other is to drop it and move on with your life even though it must be a bitter pill for you all to swallow.

I can understand your anger and your need to want your claims proven - it's only natural -

but - sometimes the best thing for our well being is to walk away from a situation which will never seemingly be resolved.

This has gone on for a long time and will eventually put so much stress onto your health - take a tip from an old lass and try and put it to rest. x

Take it to the Law Society if you haven't already done so.

You are obviously very upset by events and very passionate about injustice done towards you - don't give up x

thanks, however it is not that the council do not like confrontation as they have created exactly this by engaging in two unlawfull acts on one day and the compounding it by comitting more ulawfull acts in their subseqent cover up, which include assaults, lies, numerous breeches of the data protection act, the town hall represents to me and my abused family a wretched hive of liars criminals and villainy. i will continue my policy of lawful protest and very soon hope to create a page on the internet to spell out all of the wrong doing, what was done and by whom.

Strong accusations hifimad.
Maybe they didn't expect you to pursue your confrontation of them as many wouldn't.

i know i made a joke of it but it is indicative of the state of the institutions in this country, the most annoying thing to me is that when some politician brings something out that is controversial they will always say that any negative effects will be tempered by "checks and balances" these do not work and i do not think they are meant to work they are put there as a sop to dissenters, i have been in a battle with chesterfield council for the last four years regarding thier illegal acts and the institutions in place to hold them to account are totally inefectual.

Good luck with the council battle hifimad - you'll be lucky to get anywhere, they don't like confrontation. Let us know how you get on

Doubtful you'll upset anyone on here. We're all pretty normal  :D (y)

mmm well maybe we have just got hifimad if we are in fact 'normal'  ;D

Hifimad to answer your post, I know what you are alluding too and they were very naughty, we trust that these people will be sensible but just goes to show we can't really trust anyone can we  ;)
