    You can put it on anything. Just make sure "you" are properly grounded and free from stray electrostatic charge. Use a ES strap, or be bare foot standing on a non-wooden flooring. Best thing to do: Plug in your PSU, take off your footwear and touch it. That'll send all your charge into the earth-pin of the PSU and you're safe to handle your stuff.

    Ofcourse NOT. Just touch it once, disconnect it and proceed with whatever you're doing.
