Or poor statistics. "By the age of 21, every US and Canadian kid will be tasered" and you should prepare your kids to be taser resistant for the taser experience.
But considering both the buy now links point to a generic Russian bank webpage and the article is copyrighted in Chicago, I suspect its a very tongue in cheek joke, in spite of being all too close to the future.

We'll see. I sent an email to the city police department his residential telephone number is located in, Roselle, IL, asking them if he had all the licenses, tax forms, building inspections, permission to run a business from his home, and if selling this PoS was legal in Roselle, IL.
I suggested if it is not they at LEAST notify the local PTA at the elementary schools and the mothers in his neighborhood of what he's selling and his thoughts about its use.
The cops haven't replied, yet, which to me means they will look into it before responding, I hope....before too many kids are scarred for life. Here, locally, they found a 10-year-old girl who had been living locked in a closet by her asshole parents not too long ago. Both of them made it to jail, but probably won't survive when those big bruisers in the other cells find out what they did to her. She weighed 56 pounds and was a foot and a half shorter than other 10-year-old girls. She'd never been out of the house or had other contacts since she was a baby....and noone did anything to stop it until the firemen found her when the house caught fire. They heard her screams from the locked closet and broke down the door to save her.
Hook the bastard to 50,000 volts. I'll pull the switch to watch HIM fry.....with great pleasure.
Indeed he is. Mike Sandman's been selling quality tools to the telephone industry via the website and a paper catalog for many years. He's always had a few "odd" items like the electric bidet but I'm really surprised he put this up even as a joke.
