I’d never heard of this thing until I was sent a YouTube link about the Oregon stand-off this morning and found myself enchanted, instead by the completely hilarious advertisement preceding it (I didn’t even watch the thing about the stand-off).

Surely, I must have been living under a solid chunk of frozen Rocky Road ice cream since this product, which may yet undergo FDA trials and become an officially prescribable and insurance-refundable medical device was released, in 2012!
