Ever been slapped in the head, especially around the ears or eyes, with a rolled up newspaper? It won't kill you, but it can cause serious pain, temporary blindness or deafness. A comb can be used for poking nerve points, the throat, etc.
Use the end of the rolled-up newspaper for a sudden, blunt blow to the groin or sternum for additional damage.
For art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication. -- Friedrich Nietzsche
I miss my Kubotan keychain. I walked into a government building post 9-11 and the security wouldn't allow in with it. I put it in his wastepaper basket came back 15 min later and it was gone! I would much rather take my chances with the terrorists than thieving, groping and generally pain in the ass security guards
That sucks! Sorry about losing it.
I'm so getting one!

Never mess with rural Mid-westerners.

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.
- What weapons do you own?
- Are these weapons merely for the deterrent effect in case an intruder attacks your home (or car... etc)?
- Do you know how to use them?
- If push came to shove, would you use them in case of an attack?
- Have you used them? How did you feel about it afterward?
-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.
