It all started when politicians and out-spoken celebrities and sports figures started being exposed for the stinkers they are.
The Integrity Implosions – New Fiction Writing by J. R. Kruze
Once some of these got delivered to a government building for inspection. The results were quite interesting. Because they were in an always-on state. The battery just held the charge that the circuitry was always generating. With a fully charged unit, the chronic hypocrite would disappear. With no battery, handling the device would make them immediately foul themselves.
Needless to say, there were quite a few soiled officials before they found out what was causing the disruption.
Of course, they were soon labeled dangerous ordinances, and had to be packed in enormous boxes to keep people (meaning: long-time and high-ranking officials) from getting close enough to be affected.
Unfortunately for them, we now get to the part of the viral effect.
When some contractors found out what was happening to their higher-ups, particularly those who had disapproved their financing, the circuitry found its way into various gifts, such as flashlights, electronic picture frames, and even electric staplers. Once these were turned on, they could make fatal disappearances, but just delivered in an unplugged state to offices would make several people nauseous as they handled them.
It wasn’t long before the circuit was out on the Internet as a gag toy. Integrated circuits were printed about the size of a tiny battery, with self-adhesive. It didn’t have to be hard-wired into the machine, but could be simply pasted inside the battery cover or any inconspicuous spot on or in it.
Toy bears with electronic pull-string circuits became poo-poo gifts. Several versions of “honesty” testers were developed, all powered by the people themselves and “no batteries required.” Someone funded a program to get wooden pens gifted to every member of Congress and all their staffs. A month’s supply of toilet paper ran out in a week.
And a religious TV interviewer found out that his button would affect his guests in different ways. He found that asking the person if they had ever taken money to throw a game, there wasn’t any reaction. The circuitry wouldn’t work on a bald-faced lie. But by asking pointed questions, such as “What they felt about people taking money to throw games?” That would get them leaving the interview quickly, and for obvious reasons. He later found out that he could root out sexual predators by asking how they thought people who sexually harassed others should be treated…
