Can anything get static electricity?

    No.  Static electricity only occurs in materials that have a tendancy to become positively or negatively charged.  The imbalance in electrons causes excess electrons to “jump,” as it were, from a negative surface to a positive one.  Some common materials that tend to have a positive charge (ie., a lack of electrons) are dry skin, human hair, and fur; a negative charge, copper, rubber, and polyester.  Substances with a neutral charge will not conduct static electricity.  These include wood, steel, and cotton.
