Christmas gift idea #1

The marvels of vibration!

vibrating fun?, originally uploaded by drewzel.

My initial thought on reading “your choice of the three greatest curative forces- Vibration, Galvanic and Faradic Electricity” was that this was a load of hyperbole, and the two types of electricity were the same.  But not being scientifically minded I headed here to check it out.  And besides finding out the difference between galvanic and faradic electricity, I found this fun snippet of info, and the following pic:

Many Victorian scientists believed that if the right amount of electricity was charged into the brain, the corpse would come back to life.

So it’s “health and beauty”…and vibrating fun…and uh, raising the dead.  Who knew?
