lol..it's true! Some cat came up with a cool invention called the Pavlok.
It's a bracelet that can be programmed to shock you if you do certain actions or if you want to change a bad habit you shock yourself while doing that habit.
I was surprised to find that the internet is LOADED with testimonials from people who have quit smoking, lost weight, got off their sugar addiction...and on and on...it's quite amazingly effective.
lol..look at this lady. Put down that apple pie! She won't be doin that for long.
At first I thought it was a gimmick but when your body receives those shocks the brain turns off the desire for the action that causes those shocks!
Turns out this invention is a brilliant, biological and science based piece of equipment.
The name is clever too and I know that 99% of Steemians already know the name Pavlov because y'all are so smart, educated, and highly intelligent.
For that one percent, Ivan Pavlov was a Russian physiologist who did experiments with dogs in the 1890's and discovered that he could condition them to respond to certain stimuli.
Same type of conditioning with the Pavlok. Actually, I think he should have called it the Pavshock! But perhaps that would project a negative connotation.
The price is $179 or if you're short on funds you can pay $30 a month until paid in full. But as the new models come out you can trade your old one in for very little cost and get the new one.
What do you guys think...anyone that could use one of these? Get shocked if you don't get a post out? lol. The website is full of more information and testimonials here.
Thanks so much for stopping by folks, God bless you all!
PS- You wanna see what the world's largest dog looks like? Or at least the world's tallest? Freddy the Great Dane is in the Guinness Book as the tallest. Check him out:
His owner has to walk him before daylight every morning so he doesn't intimate the other dogs. Plus, if he decided to run..she wouldn't be able to stop him! lol.
She's 5 ft 4 inches, he is 7 feet tall when standing:
He weights 14.5 stones(203 pounds) and pretty much does what he wants. She said he's destroyed 23 couches so far!
And yes, it costs a fortune to feed him. Between Freddy and her other dog she spends well over 12,500 pounds each year!
I like that bowl..The Boss! lol. Exactly.
I bet she feels secure with him there though, I bet he's a good watch dog. Can you imagine the bark on that guy?
