A better test would be to connect the -ve on the 9v battery to ground, touch the positive, and ground yourself (you will only ever experience this when you're grounded).

You obviously know nothing about how electricity works.

Maybe you could enlighten us on how the addition of a ground to this circuit would make a difference. I'm standing by to be "schooled".

TIA,
