    Well, they had it right until they got to the "Ninja" Keychain and the Sap Cap. The "Ninja" Keychain, I would never carry because it is bulky and draws a lot of attention, to say the least. But if someone chose to carry it and use it and they can punch moderately hard, it's going to do the job.

    The Sap Cap, you can beat the snot out of someone with it and apparently those morons on that website slam their hats on so hard...well, that might explain some of the commentary on that website. :cool:

    My favorite one was the Blast Knuckles - I love the advertising cartoon!

    The shotgun flashlight seems to be the worst of all the ideas to me. That's just an accident waiting to happen.

    The No-Contact jacket seems like a good idea to me, but I hope they test it well before releasing it.

    Mainly an amusing collection of novelty items available to an ignorant public.

    The advertisement is misleading. The projectile lightning doesn't happen under normal use. It's more of a super move when the INCLUDED three CR123 batteries violently explode. Call it a bonus feature :thumbsup:

    Yeah, I don't know that they're irresponsible so much as just absolutely ludicrous.

    When you go to that site, you get one of those "customers who bought this also bought these items", one of which is an Official Sex Education License. The perfect companion to your Blast Knuckles!

    That's just wrong.

    (I'm not calling you a liar. I'm saying it's just messed up that someone thought of that, and dudes apparently use it.)

    As DBR pointed out, the sap cap is a wonderfully devious and effective tool. The rest of it? The Myotron? The Romatron? (Sounds like a small electric tomato) I'd say you're probably doing well to avoid any self defenst tool that has "tron" in the name.

    The Myotron. hahahahaha Oh that one's special though. hahahaha

    Sadly, its true!

    I used to deal with a Japanese company and their UK agent would bring in Japanese magazines with pictures of vending machines dispensing used panties purporting to originate from schoolgirls.

    Some even depicted images of the faces of the wearer!

    Snopes, has some info on it: http://www.snopes.com/risque/kinky/panties.asp

    This article also sheds light on the subject: http://web.archive.org/web/20040226204619/http://www.smn.co.jp/e/key/burusera.html

    I guess its all down to cultural differences!
