Electrifying News

Electroshock therapy is making a comeback.

Mind you, there are those who say that it never left:

According to the Economist,

Not only does the treatment work, but its effects appear to be long lasting. A study led by Charles Conway of Saint Louis University in Missouri, and presented to a recent meeting of the American Psychiatric Association, has found that 70% of patients who are better after one year stay better after two years as well.
I'll buy that. If you put 10,000 volts through my brain and asked me any time in the next two years if I was feeling better, I'd sure as Hell say "yes" if it saved me from a top-up.
