TASER XREP Causes Incapacitation for 20 Seconds

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech, Science,

XREP

This is just too much taser for anyone to have to endure. The XREP is a projectile that is wireless and self-contained and can be fired from a 12-gauge Less Lethal Shotgun. It can go a distance of up to 65 ft. and autonomously creates neuromuscular incapacitation (NMI) for 20 seconds. But it is this description of what happens should the

victim

subject intervene that makes us recoil in horror and silently scream, “Don’t tase me, bro’.”

“If the subject tries to grab or disconnect the XREP projectile, the reflex engagement electrodes complete a circuit allowing TASER NMI to discharge from the nose, through the subject’s body, out to the hand that grabbed the projectile. This reaction creates a significant spread that allows the XREP projectile pulses to affect a large body mass, causing overpowering NMI.”

By the way, if you wanna see one of us get TASER’d, hit the jump for the video.

‘One Life to Live’ Star Arrested for Assault

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Daytime, ABC, Gossip, News, Rumors,

Nathaniel MarstonActor , who plays Dr. Michael McBain on ABC’s , was arrested Sunday morning in New York.  Unlike other celebrity scandals which usually involve misdemeanors, Marston is facing at least one felony charge.

The actor, who was reportedly enraged after exiting a cab, used a crate to assault three men; one of his victims suffered a broken leg.  It’s unclear what ignited his attack, though officers believe he was under the influence of a narcotic at the time.  Nathaniel, 32, was arrested for felony assault, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest.  He was later transported to a local hospital where he was listed as ‘emotionally disturbed’.  This would not be Marston’s first brush with the law.  Back in 1999, while he was working on CBS’s , he was arrested for taking his rage out on an ATM machine.  (Dude, no money means no money.)

It is unknown what the producers of One Life to Live will do about the situation at this point; Nathaniel is currently involved in a major storyline on the show.  Meanwhile, a rep for told TVGuide.com that they ‘are aware of the incident and are reviewing the details.’  If fired from OLTL, this would be Marston’s second time around.  He was killed off back in 2003 (reportedly due to questionable work habits) but later brought back as a different character due to strong fan reaction.

And yes, there’s a safety switch, so you won’t accidentally shock yourself if you grab this phone instead of your real Nokia. Ouch. The Cell Phone Stun Gun is available for $60 USD, however the website is prohibited from sending this weapon to a handful of states, for legal reasons.
