    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I remember in Junior High I was getting bullied a stupid farmboy who was smaller than me, and I wanted to whip his ass so bad, but I didn't want to get in trouble and I was a real wimp back then and I didn't want to get my ass kicked, either. Some crazy **** had gone down where the overall grades at the school were slipping so bad that they gave us all these heavy duty paper notebooks to write our homework assignments in. They were like a step below cardboard. I recall getting a nasty paper cut from the edge of the damn cheap things on my thumb. This inspired me. The next time the livestock diddler fucked with me in art class I took the booklet and held it like a straight razor and slashed it across his wrist and he bled all over the frickin place. He had it coming, too, 'cause he knew he couldn't kick my ass, but he saw me getting bullied by everybody else who could, and took advantage. After I cut him, he was broken. Two or three years later he still had a scar on his wrist and got his ass kicked by a junior high schooler when we were in HS.

    Everytime I read a Ninja book that mentions them making a knife with a passable point by folding newspaper tight enough I laugh. Screw the triangular fold to make a shitty point, just fold it sideways over and over to give it strength and wield that fucker like a razor.

    Ah, Phil Elmore...I've heard of him. I guess there is no lost love between him and the members here. I guess I should have clarified that improvise to me means any substitute at the time when its needed. Whereas, makeshift was thought of as something pre-made from anything. I can see where the confusion lies in my thread.

    Thanks,

    A folded piece of paper with the word "Supoena" printed in large font, will send most people running. The rest you have to shoot.

    But if you can't afford a lawyer, just carry a sock full of golf balls.

    I do have a friend who has gone to great lengths to manufacture his own homebrew weapons. he had a hollow shaft cane that he slid aaa batteries into that made it have a neat weight shift to hit harder.

    Whats funny is that one of the IMA's (bagua I think?) used something similar, a bamboo cane filled with mercury. I'd use steel shot personally, less risk of mercury poisoning and better density and compaction than aaa batteries (not that it isn't a good substitute though).

    My dad used to be a paperboy. this dog always chased him and terrorised him for a good while. once, the dog made my dad fall of his bike, only to look up at the dog owner and watch him laugh his ass off.

    my dad makes some nunchakus out of a broken broom stick and rope and puts it in his newspaper basket. the dog comes back to chase him the next day on the morning route, my dad whacks the **** out of the dog's face. the dog dies, the owners cancel there newspaper subscription.

    not a prison story, but it proves that makeshifts weapons work...
