Things I Don't Give You Permission To Do, Vol 1: Use the Taser

News article with commentary: 10-year-old girl tasered, with mom's permission.

As a kid, I had a few run-ins with electric fences used to keep cattle in, and I can report that being shocked sucks, sucks, sucks.

I remember once playing a game over at my friend Jim's house, and running full-tilt-boogie into a wire stretched about thigh-high. I was lucky that I hit it sideways and not straight on, but I can still remember the twin traumas of the shock and bouncing off the ground when I came away from the wire.

(In other gaming news, played Dominion with Lee a couple nights ago, played a modified Ticket To Ride with Alex, and played Dominion with Beth and Lee last night.)
