Is that for your stereo, your computer, or do you plug it into your (pardon my French) derrière?

As I understand it they sell gizmos to "ground" anything, but these are for your body. Your sleep is so much healthier when under a wave-repelling blanket connected to Mother Earth, stands to reason.

Yet I've seen no tinfoil hat in the catalog.

It insures regularity, lowers your chance of colo-rectal cancer, and it vibrates in any one of 8 different patterns via remote control! It also has the awkward property of turning you into a lightning rod. But hey, if Gawd wants to get you, he's gonna get you. So vibe on up there you damned deviated preverts!
