Vicious blood pressure cuffs!

I still have marks on my arm (rows of little burst-capillary spots under my skin) from where an overly zealous automatic blood pressure machine viciously constricted my arm 5 days ago. Grr! It was massively tighter than any other time I've had my blood pressure checked, whether manually or automatically.

[Edit] Amusing responses to this on work chat server:
 -> (12:30) From Achorrath, to rant:
 - The robotic blood pressure machine uprising has begun!
 -> (12:30) From matto, to rant:
 - I, for one, welcome our new autosphygnomatic masters.
 -> (12:32) From Tamino, to rant:
 - UR SPHYGMOM
 -> (12:33) From matto, to rant:
 - IM IN UR SHYGMANOMETER, MEASURIN UR PRESSURES
