Post TASER
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...

Somehow I have never before learned the meaning of "TASER." It was in an article today - the inventor died last week.

No, I won't tell you. Go look it up. Wikipedia's fine for this one. Be sure to find the whole backstory of why it's named that.

Heh, never knew that.

I like the "confetti" Taser model theory.

I didn't know the origin, either. Neat.
