    Q1: Two 2.5 cm stainless steel prongs are located several inches apart and are connected to a very large tesla coil applying a sufficiently high voltage. These are deviously connected to the light switch in a 10x15X10 room.

    Word.

    Barium? Strontium?

    Q2: My neighbors dog has been barking at night for the last week. What means would you suggest for taking care of this problem?
    Confront him with a person who is, or appears to be, a law enforcement officer, as to avoid him going to the police, which is a likely outcome in a lot of other scenarios.

    Q3: An irate customer is at the counter. You would: a) tell him you'll be right back. b) shoot him with the osmotic hypertonicator. c) release the dogs. d) not make eye contact or acknowledge he exists. d) demand a back and foot massage. e) Talk with a well mannered and reasonable tone, setting him at ease.

    I want his fade soooo badly, but I could never pull that **** off.

    Jones is still fighting crime as much as ever. I ran into him last month (I run in very interesting circles).

    Oh holy crap, I finally read the rest of this thread.
    Anyways, wandering around the city with a shotgun and taking people's money doesn't make you a vigilante, it just makes you a mugger.
    The best recreational crimefighting strategem I've encountered was from a Real Life Superhero Group in NYC. They would have one girl walking alone, pretending to be drunk. They'd have another 2 or 3 people in street clothes tailing at a distance on skateboards; far enough that they didn't seem to be part of her group, close enough that they could close the gap quickly. The whole party would then go through unsafe neighborhoods late at night.
    They'd wait for someone to try and mug/sexually assault/whatever the faux-drunk girl, and then the whole gang would come in to beat the **** out the attackers.
    You'll note that at no point do any of them dress like Batman.
    Also bullshit on the you can't balance fighting crime and having a job. Pheonix Jones has a day job, a pro MMA career, AND plenty of time left for recreational crimefighting.

    He's also appartently super human.

    Look how many times that drunk chick hit him with a shoe? Nada. He just flinched and went about his heroics.

    He can also run in his skin tight outfit without sucumbing to heat exaustion. Inconcievable!

    And did you see that high top?

    Mr. Fodor is no ordinary man.

    Oh my god I realized I made a serious reply to this thread. I think I'm losing my touch.
