    Say for example you had gloves made of this material and touched something with an electric charge wouldn't you get a worse shock?

    It would not feel as bad since conduction would be spread out over a larger area - but would potentially be more dangerous since the larger area would allow more current to flow. Note that the _charge_ is not dangerous, it's the potential - and the current available behind the potential - that is dangerous.

    (This thread isn't going to end up talking about the government making you go bald again, is it? I hope not.)

    You're going bald. It's not the government, it's your head. Accept it.
