    Oncelost, would you say that it gets easier to deal with chemical irritants with more exposure? I've talked to cops who have told me that.
    Only if you compare it to how taking a punch gets easier with more exposure. It will always suck (and hurt), but since you are familiar with the 'type' of pain and where it is most intense (eyes, nose, armpits) you can 'brace' yourself for it a little bit.

    I'm a huge fan of the taser, but we weren't really discussing that.

    Hey that might be a good option. Get the boy one of those small hand tasers. The ones that arc and zap.

    Fire starter and 3" pocket knife with emergency signal whistle. Obviously a tool.
    I thought the same thing when I saw it, something of that sort would be my pick.
    The firestarter can be a handy thing for a poor hitchiker. As a former smoker, I know how those cheapo lighters everybody loves can fail you fairly often. Warmth is good, and all that.

    Small regular pocket knife for cutting up apples and cleaning finger nails and a road flare for scaring away bears and scaring a perverted driver enough to pull over and let you out, then use the Iridium Sat phone for assistance.

    Or just take his hippy ass down to the USMC recruiter for a nice walking tour of Ramadi.

    Real hippies... Kinda like real karate or something. I WAS in the Haight and no one had dreadlocks, and I can't remember ever seeing any tie die, and not one guy in a dress. The typical hippie "leaders" were like Bill Graham, fast talking aggressive NY Jew who wasn't afraid to use his fists (and best friend of Jerry Garcia), and guys like Ken Kessey, Oregon St. wrestler (author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and had the psychedelic bus and so on, and Grogan the digger, who fought cops and fed the people, and Abbie Hoffman, who told Judge Hoffman at ethe Chicago Seven trial "you are a disgrace to the Jews. You would have served Hitler better, and your idea of justice is the only obscenity in this room." Talk about balls.

    Oh, and I have a thirty ought six and a twelve gage
