Shock (stun) Guns
« on: October 12, 2006, 03:46:54 PM »
It was strange that Sawyer couldn't use the shock gun...I was thinking that maybe they don't have a "safety" switch and MAYBE the Others power them with their bodies or something...

Just a throwin' out there...any thoughts???

I first thought that it was a fake and maybe the rifle was empty too. To fake the security and not be screwed if somthing like that happened.

Too far out there... I think there is a safety switch, exactly for the situation that happen and so they don't accidently shock themselves...

Haha, would be great just to suddenly see a random other roll around the floor in pain after accidently shocking themselves.

Ok, I'm not going to say this many more times. The OTHERS are HUMANS, just like our Losties. No difference. At worst, they are very smart people with some slight psychic ability, but that is WCS. Not likely.

Stun Gun has a safety on it.

Yes the stun gun had a safety, just like Sawyer said.
Do you want to carry one without a safety? You bump into something, or fall and zap.

They have a safety switch. No mystery involved here.

So what are the chances that Sawyer didn't get a good look at a shock gun at some time during the day? He isn't the sort to miss those kinds of details when his own life is on the line, let alone Freckles'.

When are the only time he sees the gun? When he's about to be shocked. He'll check for a safety next time, to be sure.

This is one of the craziest ideas I've heard this season.

Safety switches are mandatory on basically all weapons.

on that note, my next theory is that is that the Others are captured immortal, day-walking vampires and the island is the only prison that could contain them indefinitely. Dharma was set up to study them to develop immortality for humans...it explains EVERYTHING! Think about it... ;D
