I get that everyone has a computer now.  I get that people like making videos of themselves and putting them up on YouTube or whatnot.  I also get that there are an enormous amounts of fucking idiots in the world.  Well, this week we have that dude playing with a Taser.  I’d feel bad for this guy if he hadn’t of been all up and posing for the camera with his macho bravado.  The best is his cousin and girlfriend giggling their asses of while this guy writhes around on the floor after electrocuting himself.  Here’s a bit of what the interweb has to say about Tasers and potential hazards regarding them.  Play safe, idiots.



Critics argue that Tasers and other high-voltage stun devices can cause cardiac arrhythmia in susceptible subjects, possibly leading to heart attack or death in minutes by ventricular fibrillation, which leads to cardiac arrest and—if not treated immediately—to sudden death. People susceptible to this outcome are sometimes healthy and unaware of their susceptibility.

Although the medical conditions or use of illegal drugs among some of the casualties may have been the cause of death, the electric shock of the Taser can significantly heighten such risk for subjects in an at-risk category. In some cases however, death occurred after Taser use coupled with the use of force alone, with no evidence of underlying medical condition and no use of drugs.
