Have you joined my incredibly non-annoying, once-in-a-while email newsletter?
The things we do for fun at CES.
Strippers? Boring. Hookers and Alcohol? Nah, too plebian.
I got it: LET’S GET TASERED!!
Added to my list of things I’ve done in my life:
I’ve been Tasered.
And HOLY CRAP, IT HURT.
It really, really, really hurt. 50,000 volts running through your legs will do that, I suppose.
Taser was demo’ing their new “cooler-looking, in color” Tasers. Two guys held me, one on either side. I found out it was to lower me down slowly. I was like, “yeah, whatever.” Then it felt like I was freakin’ SHOT. I went down like a rifled Hippo. I mean, I DROPPED. The guys were nice enough to lower me gently to the ground, since I no longer had control over my legs, or any other part of me.
Yeah. Ow. Screenshots and Video Captures below. Holy crap, it hurt. What does it say about our society, though, when Taser, Inc. takes a 15×15 booth at the 2007 CES? Heh.

And he’s down.
Done. There’s a reason police like these things, guys…
