True or Wikiwashed?
"Sixty years later, in reality, the Taser was invented by Jack Cover and marketed by Taser International. The trademark is an acronym for Thomas A. Swift's Electric Rifle. The middle initial (the 'A') is gratuitous, as Tom's full name is unknown."
It is interesting (FSVO) that people never use a generic term for 'electroshock weapon', people always say 'Taser'.
