Unlikely Weapons - How to turn everyday objects into deadly weaponsBy Adam Sinicki
Wouldn't it be cool to kill someone with an orange? No - you'd go to prison and possibly never come out. So don't be mistaken; this article isn't condoning murderers and should be kept away from them and bad guys in general. Why? Because it contains some very powerful information that can turn an everyday object into a deadly weapon. Sometimes I worry about myself...
If like me you constantly walk around with a handful of lose change jingling in your pocket then you might actually be better equiped than your richer colleagues. If you're being threatened a cluster of coins thrown with some force towards the face can be a serious mid-long range weapon. If you're hard up for cash you can then collect the change again while they flail around blindly/cry.
Best of all it has a poetic/ironic element if they previously said 'give us your money'.
They say the pen is mightier than the sword. Well that's just a lie, but when used correctly it can be almost as mighty as a knife; the nib of a pen is actually not much wider than the tip of many blades and it can be just as deadly if used correctly. To succesfully injure someone with a pen first open it or click it so that it is on, then hold it between the your middle finger and ring finger so that it is near to your knuckles. Now close your fist so that the blunter end of the pen is pressed against your palm. This is now a close range weapon and can be pushed into an oponent by thrusting from your wrist. Do not jab with it too forcefully and quickly however as you may damage your own palm.
If you're on this site then there's a good chance you're a bodybuilder of some sort and have Awesome Power tm, this allows you to use slightly less conventional objects as weapons - such as the drain cover. If you're strong enough and can pull one up and off (they aren't normally attatched to the ground) you can then hurl them towards the shins of an oponents.
If you're being chased then putting a railing/ledge/fence between you and your attacker can effectively end the confrontation. The reason for this is that your attacker will have to climb over the obstacle themselves to follow you - but whenever they try you can easily knock them back off or attack them while their hands and legs are busy climbing.
An ordinary belt can make a handy long-range weapon or knuckle duster. Obviously if using this means your trousers are going to fall down then you should strongly consider other options.
Deodorant sprayed directly in the face is particularly dangerous for those on the receiving end and can certainly impair an attacker's vision long enough for you to get away. If it's held right against the skin it can also cause nasty burns.
Remember kids - killing is wrong. Stay safe!
