Nothing would happen, because they would not work (kernel modules). MacOS and Linux have 2 completly different kernels. It's like trying to put engine from one car brand to another: it will not work because all the connections/specifications are totally different.

If you run around naked there is no static build up. But that is not always a option. So it is the clothes that charge up. Some clothing materials are worse than others. Siting on a chair with wheels is not good, but then you can have a static discharge mat under it. Dry air amplifies the problem of static charge The key is your shoes, or no shoes. ...
