Cell-Phones Are Lethal
Made the mistake of browsing through an MA mag on the way home today. Starting to, anyway. Letter-to-the-editor section had an offering from one George Dillman, of Reading, PA. Seems the mag had had an article in a previous issue about everyday items that can be used as weapons.
According to Dillman, the article made a fatal omission: apparently, cell-phones are really effective when used against pressure-points. I wouldn't know, since my MA knowledge is limited, I hate cells and never carry mine if I can help it, and pressure-point-stuff has never worked on me. Never got past the "letters" section before returning the publication to the rack.
I just thought I'd let y'all know. Your cell is your ticket to survival against an attacker.
In expert hands, it's deadly.
At first I thought this was going to be about brain tumors.
That's actually probably the best way to use them in defense. Give them to your attacker in the hopes they will use the cell phone, putting them in mortal danger for brain tumors!!! They'll never see it coming.
If he was talking about one of these fuckers he'd have a point:
Not so much good for pressure points, there's nothing like good old fashioned blunt force trauma though.

Or maybe he's taking the "katana" and "razr" literally. Wouldn't surprise me.

i've been hit and have seen people hit with those things. my friend had to get stitches on his skull from a cellphone. they work as well as those kubiton things.
Our advanced black belt curriculum teaches you how to give people cancer. it's called carcin-do.

A SD company makes stun-guns that are disguised as cell-phones. I'm not too sure how that would be useful. Other than having a less intimidating effect on an attacker and the chance that you might confuse your stun-phone for your real cell-phone, what makes it different from a regular stun gun?
