"Captain Zoom! Crispy-Pop Piezo Electric Snap Flakes(tm)" A cereal made for putting younger siblings through the h*ll that they'll put up with, just to annoy the elder sibling and any of their friends.
This cereal tastes pretty bad, is non-toxic even in large quantities, and as the name implies,
sends peizo electric shocks through your mouth every time you crunch.
The best part is, you and your friend act as if it's GREAT and see if you can get the younger sibling to go along with it!
Better than chewing aluminum foil, and if you eat it in the dark, you can watch your mouth light up!
||Damn, shock treatment was first on my list today, too. Where do I get some of this? At the fish market?
||I think that this could be more easily implemented with
the "old lamp cord to the doorknob" trick.
Furthermore, it might be tricky to make piezoelectric
crystals non-toxic in large quantities. Quartz (sand) may
not be toxic per se, but it sure isn't good for you.
||instead of releasing the shock into the
mouth, i propose installing a small
capacitor on each flake... allow the
charge to build up and then feed it back
into the piezo which will now act as a
high-pitch buzzer... screaming cereal.
flakes have feelings, too...
