At that price I think I'd sooner die

I've been seeing those commercials on tv for the Phillips home defibrillator and was curious enough to check it out. I was intrigued that they were choosing to sell it through amazon as opposed to direct mail or through some sort of hospital/clinic. I can't imagine most people would know how to really use one of these things short of watching old reruns of ER. Not to mention that I could see kids playing with it by shocking one another for shits and giggles. Anyway, I went to the website to took a look and found the damn thing costs $1,300! Holy crap. That seems a bit pricey for a glorified cattle prod, no? I'm not quite sure the average human life is worth 1,300. Maybe they should think about selling a home kit for $50 where it'll tell you how to hook someone's nipples up to a car battery and accomplish the same thing.
