    mm not sure what to make of it for us.

    I wonder how well they slept after being shocked awake for longer then they would normally have been awake for??

    I wish they could shock us to sleep, i think i would prefer that ??? maybe???

    Using shocks to keep their personal awake... I guess just shows how much defence forces care about the ones who work for them health.

    At least one study has shown that ones immune system goes down with less then a week of poor nightly sleep.

    Anyone want to bet that this will be trialed on those who have ME/CFS? .. "sleep deprived" people. How long before the defence force does a trial of electric shock treatment on its GWS people. (I refuse to call them that new name.. I suggest all boycott it).

    Dr. Cheney thinks that CFS is a minor seizure disorder, so I would think that electrical shocks would just make it worse.

    To boycott it, we would first have to remember it. I doubt that many of us do. o_O
