Unconventional Weapons of Mass Destruction (UWMD)
Started at Sun Jul 25 12:40:53 2004 IP69.5.200.231 OK...Ok...so Bourne picks up this magazine and rolls it up and starts to....

I have heard the stories about the Professor going at someone (practice with Chuck Gauss) in the airport with a rolled up news paper.

My favorite UWMD's are a belt, a pencil or ballpoint pen, and a hard cover book. What are yours?

Me? Short length of chain with a weight on the end. In my case, my solid metal framed pocket watch on an 18 inch dog chain.

I've got a Flute from Bali that obviously can be used for more than music. It's hardwood, and quite solid.

Also: a notebook, and pennies have both be handy additions in playfighting with friends.

I like that. An addition to this could be to act like your having the worst day of your life and be loud about it. Walking around yelling about how your wife left you for your brother would be so entertaining to some they might just forget to attack you. It's a 'Springer' trick.

Has anyone ever used keys as a weapon in an actual fight? How effective were they? Was the wound severe or superficial?
