My System Specs

Default Metal bits and shorts

So another foreign particles in case question:

I was eating a chocolate bar wrapped in metallic foil, and I also tore off a strip of aluminum foil while cooking something. I then worked on the inside of my PC. I then wondered if perhaps some bits of foil may have landed on my shirt or pants. What if these metal bits fell into my case while working on it and shorted something out? I have already started working on my PC, so now I'm a bit concerned.

Does this sound like a reasonable scenario, or a bit far fetched?
