Get a shocking experience when I use my Satellite S855

I thought it was just me at first...then it kept getting worse.  When I put my wrists on the laptop to type, I get a slight shocking sensation.  

 

I then noticed that it all the metal on the laptop (including the top).  If feels like there is a current going through it and though not painful, it feels like when you put your tongue on a 9V battery.

 

Can someone tell me if this is a common issue?

 

Is this dangerous?

 

I noticed that it only has a two prong plug...could that be the issue?

 

I need to get this resolved ASAP...I cannot keep typing like this.

 

Thanks

John
