The Daily Sheeple – by Melissa Dykes
We are not only becoming techno zombies in this society, but now, people are lining up willingly to pay $200 to get their own shock
collar bracelet that will help them “retrain” their behaviors with a few (hundred) painful zap treatments (oh, and mild vibrations). It’s even actually called the The Pavlok, named after you guessed it, Ivan Pavlov, the Russian physiologist who came up with Pavlovian conditioning.
The aversion (shock) will program a person to avoid whatever bad habit they are being trained against, and the company claims it works in five days or less to “delete temptation” by associating a zap with a person’s bad habit, training their brain to dislike said habit. No, they don’t know what the long-term effects to wearing the Pavlok are, but the local news station below calls it “340 Volts of Wearable Willpower”.
Can you imagine what would happen if parents start putting these on their children? Would CPS step in?
By the way, the TSA has already discussed putting taser bracelets on passengers, you know, because terrorism.
Oh, and the Pavlok can be programmed to be triggered by sensors, apps, manually… and via remote control.
Apparently it “hurts like a b*tch” — with shocks from 50 volts up to 450 (getting stung by a giant bee).

This wristband doesn’t seem malicious to me, but merely stupid. It relies on the wearer to punish himself by pressing the button each time he engages in the habit he’s trying to quit. What if simply decide to stop pushing the button whenever your discipline breaks down? If you have the willpower to shock yourself repeatedly, then you also have the willpower to simply refrain from whatever behavior you’re trying to rid yourself of. Or you can punish yourself in other ways that cost no money (e.g., doing pushups).
Those who say the device helped them probably benefited from a variety of the placebo effect.
A wearable shock device that can be remotely activated by another person is a whole different ball game. Anyone who willingly wears something like that is a complete moron.
“New policy, remote controlled “cattle prod” up everyone’s “ying-yang” for behavior modification purposes.” I’m certain that would get everyone’s attention! But that’s exactly how twisted they are!
Absolutely true. The add-on/upgrade should be a .45 ACP habit breaking helmet. Instantly cures ALL their bad habits!
I guess freedom and autonomy is too much for some idiots to handle.
Jolly, the fact is some folks just want to be slaves! That way, they don’t have to take responsibility for their actions. Some folks just can’t handle that, and some others just can’t handle non-conformity.
When I was getting my Masters Degree in Counseling back in the early 90s, “Aversion Therapy” was the latest craze in Counseling…gee I’m surprised it took someone this long to come up with this nonsense!
