Personal Safety And The MP3 Player

Sound interesting? Today's required reading comes from the Arizona Republic. A leopard print taser, for your personal safety, and a holster which includes a 1GB MP3 player for your listening pleasure. Hmm...interesting. The only possible reason for this that I can think of is, people who are "rocking out" to their MP3 player are more susceptible to being attacked as they are usually not paying attention. So, enter the handy-dandy taser to deliver 50,000 volts of electricity from up to 15 feet away. But not in DC, MA, RI, NY, NJ, WI, MI & HI...they're not legal in those states! I wonder if the music industry is in on this holster idea. Maybe if you're caught downloading music illegally, you will be tased? Now that would be innovative!

Apparently tasers are becoming a big item everywhere. I've even seen commercials for them on TV. I would get one, but I'd probably just end up tazing myself.
