Do you own a taser?  Have you never used it, are considering not carrying it around any more, and are now wondering what to do with it?

Zap your veggies.

Today I heard on The Splendid Table that a scientist in Japan found that “stunned” potatoes are healthier for you.  Apparently shocked potatoes produce more antioxidants.

You can hear it here too, it is the first 50 seconds of the program.

The scientists, however, used a low charge for up to half and hour.  Not exactly what your stun gun was meant to do.  You can read an article about it in the Daily Mail.

DISCLAIMER:  I am NOT recommending you try this at home.  And, if you do so, I bear no responsibility. Take a self-defense class instead.
