    ^That still happens here in Arkansas...

    I`m pretty sure that those will not catch on in my home town, for one I don`t know of any business that has the money to splurge on one of those.

    I also see future law suits coming out of this. Someone is going to say this messed up there kids hearing just to try and make some money.

    Noting that the acronym of this device is STD (same as sexually transmitted disease), I was inclined to think it was a joke, but, I googled it ( and sure as poo, there it is!

    Think we can make one that attract women, even against their will? ;-)

    But if it`s for shoplifters what are they going to do about the old shoplifters? And that would be really annoying to the good kids.

    These are the dumbest idea. You should need a permit to use it or something. I remember one day I was going into deli and I heard this loud sound. My ears actually started to HURT. So I was like WTF? I went up to some guy and said do you hear that and he said no. It got bad, so I left. I went back the next day and saw some little girl crying and her mother look really pissed.

    I have a bad feeling about that. It`s almost as if they`re saying most teenagers are violent, mean punks. Kids could be discriminated against.
