today on my lunch break i tried on my coworkers electrical shock bracket and shocked myself with it

it didn’t work the first time so we had to try it two or three times

@hyperlink hype they're feeding you animal chow and physically punishing you at work.


@selontheweb to be fair i volunteered for both the animal chow and the electrical punishment

@hyperlink @selontheweb ??? how does that work? they see something that’s on sale and then shock themselves manually?? how does the bracelet know?

@Sapphicgiraffic untagging sel because they hate this but yeah they shock themself

@hyperlink and they paid money for this device? why not just steal a rubber band from the supply cabinet and snap it on their wrist like a normal person?? like you wanted to stop spending money and your solution was... spending money?? please tell me they bought the shock bracelet during a sale, please!!!

just own up to being a masochist at that point, be honest with ur self, smh

@Sapphicgiraffic @hyperlink there's gotta be a better way. Like a Bluetooth shock bracelet so you can have your phone trigger shocks for some event so you can give yourself a complex about whatever you want

@hyperlink @tiff @Authoritimmy Improve Your Sleep (With Shock Clock 2) omg i’m dying what??

but also, the important question here, did they pay full price, or was it on sale???

@Sapphicgiraffic @hyperlink @tiff 200 is the sale price, 100 dollars off lol.

The app is very bad and most functionality doesn't work without a zapper paired so I can't find out if you can do anything fun with it. The permissions are very bad and misleading too


@Authoritimmy @Sapphicgiraffic @hyperlink they got a list here, and also IFTTT integration:

tbh the shock alarm has uses, a friend who's on-call gets a zap when he's paged so he doesn't wake his wife.

but then they call their users Shockers and "Our Facebook group is full of Shockers" was painful to read

@Authoritimmy @tiff @hyperlink can’t wait to see amazon making these mandatory for all distribution center employees

@Sapphicgiraffic @Authoritimmy @tiff @hyperlink can’t decide if it would be very good or very bad to tell the folks on r/nofap about this...

@Sapphicgiraffic @Authoritimmy @tiff @hyperlink wait, are the “volts” redeemable for anything, or is it just like a personal scoreboard kinda deal?

@Authoritimmy @Sapphicgiraffic @hyperlink "fellas, does it count if the pavlok around my nuts got me off by accident?"

@tiff @Sapphicgiraffic @hyperlink can you set it to zap you every time you lose the built-in flappy bird knockoff they bundle in the app(???!)
