    Yup.

    Use the end of the rolled-up newspaper for a sudden, blunt blow to the groin or sternum for additional damage.

    No but I've wished I had them for self-defense.

    That sucks! Sorry about losing it.

    I'm so getting one!

    You can lob it at attackers. It weighs a few pounds at least and would slow them down buying you a bit of time in the process.

    -A rifle, two heirloom shotguns, and my grandfather's .38special.

    -Not really, though that is definitely a bonus (An intimidating weapon is the best kind, as you may not even have to use it). People have always told me that the sound of a shotgun chambering a round is the most effective criminal deterrent there is.

    -Yes, and I practice to ensure that I maintain that ability.

    -If my life, or someday, my family's lives were in danger, I'd use them without hesitation. However, I do make certain that I keep a very hefty respect for the weight of the decision to use them.

    -Fortunately, I've never had to use them. Hopefully, it'll stay that way.

    It's tentatively called Ni "humor". It's characterized by a lack of any sort of concrete correlation with the real world.
