At first I thought this was real and immediately thought they would be issued to police for schools - no joke - cops have tasered 6 year olds. But - it was a joke once I read it. One hopes. It's a good thing kids don't come with a "pause" button. If they did, there would have to be a timeout, otherwise you might look around one day and ask "Where's Johnny?". Your wife would say "In the closet for the last 6 months". My father once remarked the problem with shock collars on kids would be overuse. When my son turned 13, I called my father and apologized. (Son turns 21 next week! Oye!)

When I read the title of the article and looked at the picture, my thought was that this is a taser designed for kids to carry around, rather than for being used on kids. Now, that could change the family dynamic. :-) The article referred to: "Tasered Youths Fare as Well as Adults, New Research Says" is actually on the Wake Forest Medical Center website. My guess is that the taser for kids website is a political statement about tasers in general.

Great, now we have a way to reveal latent heart problems in kids as well as adults! We had a recent death (revived with CPR, but now brain damaged) here in California caused by officers who tasered a lady for resisting a search of her purse. And there have been others who didn't survive. Tasers are deadly weapons - adding to the arsenal in a gun-crazed country! Of course, the makers have their heads in the sand, saying "no credible study ... blah, blah". I can only hope this ad is a joke! Incidentally, you can view complete patents for free at the USPTO website ... just install "AlternaTIFF", a free program.

Reminds me of a similar stunt we pulled years ago. We were designing kids toys at the time and had a "hidden" page with products like "Mr. Sticky" Super Glue Doll (keep away from eyes), "Kid Friendly Knives" with "Real Blood Effects", etc. I agree, a ton of work went into this (wish I was this bored)... The "tell" is if you look up the patents mentioned at the very end; one is for a "Portable Travel Potty" and the other is for a "Disposable Body Fluid Absorbent Pad" that one being for a diaper and 25 pages! You can look them up if you want using www.pat2pdf.org (if you use this site more than once, give'em at least $3.00 - that's what the USPTO charges!).

Max, you need to add the extra battery pack to boost the voltage to 250,000+ volts (only legal in Venezuela)

The Martian: A Delightful Exploration of Math, Mars & Feces

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
