    I have found that the situation you found yourself in is not at all uncommon.

    It's the soft spot next to the spine beneath the skull. Easy place to put a knife straight to the brain. Apparently they don't even make a sound, just instant rag doll. My father was an interesting guy. Imagine the Dad in Meet the Parents.

    Not in the same league, obviously, but I had a promoter trying to convince me that a flashlight with an incandescent bulb was actually an LED. I let her go on for a couple of minutes before it was too painful and I had to point out the differences.

    She was very enthusiastic about it though. :p

    Haven't had any pimply faced teenagers demonstrate "killer knife techniques" at my local surplus store, but the guys that work there have touted the usefulness of knives as SD weapons. I'm a regular there so I have tried to convince them that they're not, but, honestly, if they stopped telling people that knives are good for SD, they're not going to sell them at all. I should also note that this is an area that's popular with hipsters, who likely aren't going to value them as tools. It really can't be helped.

    My dad (a MD) explained in detail how to Havana someone when I got my first fixed blade at the age of 11. He might be something like your dad.

    My dad did lectures on the hundred uses of piano strings. I think the worse part was getting permanently banned from science fairs at the age of 10 after making homemade plastic explosive. Although if I'd done that today, I'd end up at Gitmo.

    Not if you were coming for a date. I had five older, protective brothers to run a gauntlet through before you reached him. He once stood a classmate, who was just trying to come over to work on a class project, up against the wall and frisked him. It's no wonder I didn't get married until I was 43.

    Gun shops, gun shows, and Army surplus stores tend to attract those kinds of folks don't they? And they always think that we want to hear their life stories, or cool stories that they've heard that are clearly :censored:. I had one guy in a gun shop tell me a customer, that was in Special Forces, brought in a P64 pistol that supposedly belonged to Bin Laden. Cause, you know, this "Special Forces" guy was one of the folks that killed him.

    My uncle was the same way, claiming to have done all kinds of stuff in Vietnam, even though he never left the military base he was stationed on in Alaska. He claims that he had to take out a U.S. General that had been captured by the VC, before he could be interrogated. That's one hell of a shot from the Aleutian Islands...

    Course, he's pretty much certifiably insane, and is serving jail time for trying to shoot his wife and two of his brothers, so there's that too.
