"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

Foto Story Friday #36 A Shocking Experience


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


The remains of a taser....
from another angle... not sure if you can see the barbs that stick into you when deployed. I hope the video works so you can watch the action. The story is that on Monday, Troy had a taser class from 9 am to 5 pm. He learned a lot and felt a lot as well. They got to choose whether or not to take the barbs, he didn't take the barbs. Instead the simulated a miss-fire and he got the dry shock. This was not a choice, he had to attend for work and he stressed about it for days.

I'm not sure I'd want to feel any kind of shock. Working in a pasture one time with my husband I asked him if the hot wire was live or not. We were cleaning up a downed fence. He goes no, of course I touch it and get shocked. Nope, that was enough electricity for me to experience that's for sure. I think it's good to know what it feels like but sure don't want do it myself. ;)
