Alertness Enhancing Device is a harness for self-conditioning. It emits mild electric shocks on demand that can be increased by turning a dial. The device claims to be a training tool for people who want to fear the right things in a plethora of scare scenarios presented to us by mass media.Stimulated by the electric current, the wearer’s neck hair starts to raise, imitating an instinctual reaction and indicating a state of increased alertness.

if this exists can someone please make the opposite bc my anxiety is so high i constantly startle from my own movements and braids, let alone other people and loud noises~
from when i was imagining ways i would build on to abandoned houses. i’d feel bad making something like this without the community thinking it was a good thing to do. someday i really want to build a house and make it exist for all the things i envision and whatever is needed. people in the neighborhood can stop by here and look at a treasure trove of made and collected items. a garden outside with food growing there. a museum/swap/shop. dress ups and crafts out and ready to use. shelves upon shelves, wooden and colorful, holding supplies and showing creations. the outside made of earth sculpted by people using their hands. a dream of mine.
