To receive a severe shock from
an electrical current is unlike just about anything you can
experience. The sudden impact of receiving it leaves you completely
helpless for a moment or two. I have received such shocks because I
wear a defibrillator in my chest that gives me a shock when my heart
starts going haywire or tries to quit.
It is a love/hate relationship I have with the implant. I love it
because it has saved me from dying several times. I hate it because
of the sensation that goes through me when it goes off. It is the
same as those paddles you see on the TV shows only it is miniature
and runs on a battery.
All in all it is a wonderful thing to have and I think with just a
few tweaks you could come up with a lot of different applications
for the unit. I think we could tweak it so it would work as a lie
detector. I think I would call it a Truthalater. As long as the
person with the unit tells the truth it will just sit there, but if
it senses that they are lying, then it would zap them the same way
it does me when my heart starts to fail.
One applications for the truthalater would be good for the entire
country. I think it could be used to help the intelligence community
get information out of a terrorist. It would be much more humane
that water boarding and it would get even better results. I think
after a while just the thought of being hooked up with that thing
would get us all the information we need. As long as the terrorist
tells the truth he will not have any discomfort.
It could be used on drug dealers to get information on their
operations and pretty soon the streets could be cleaned of illegal
drugs. It could be used by police in getting information in murder
cases. And just remember as long as everyone tells the truth the
unit doesn’t bother them at all.
This device would work wonders if all persons who were hired as used
car salesmen had to have one installed. It would be a supplement to
car-max. I dare say that a lot of little old ladies who only drive
from home to church and back would disappear like the dinosaur.
I believe the best use of the unit would be in politics. Everyone
running for any office higher than city or county should be fitted
on the day they announce their candidacy for office. This would be a
must for national office and optional for county and city elections
for populations under fifty thousand. That way there are not
exclusions, no party lines and everyone gets the chance to be
You would still be on your own with all the printed material and
smear ads they put on the media, but it is for sure that if they are
called on to explain the ads that the truthlalater would catch up
with them real fast. But the wonderful thing about it is, as long as
they tell the truth, they have nothing to worry about.
Until then we have to use good common sense and go to the polls and
If you don’t vote, you don’t have a voice but the truthalater shall
set you free.
