Food Fight Fanatics Reveal What Their Weapon Of Choice Would Be

[rebelmouse-image 18349443 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

As an elementary school student, food fights are probably one of the most exciting prospects of lunch time. Just think, a massive all out war with food! What could be better? The only question is, what food would be best to use to win the battle?

sunlight_wings asks: If you were in a food fight (to the death), what would be your weapon of choice?

Deadly!

[rebelmouse-image 18349445 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Candy Canes sucked down 'til they're all pointy

A strategic demise

[rebelmouse-image 18349446 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Peanut butter shrimp balls. I'm banking on the food allergies.

Going for a hard impact

[rebelmouse-image 18349447 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One of those impossibly hard loaves of bread.

A great projectile

[rebelmouse-image 18349448 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Coconuts

This would make some burn victims

[rebelmouse-image 18349449 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Fondue. It's boiling cheese. I'd make some sort of amped up super soaker and spray molten cheese at anyone.

I hope your mother isn't reading this...

[rebelmouse-image 18349450 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My mom's homemade dinner rolls.

Built in sword

[rebelmouse-image 18349453 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The bill of a swordfish. Use it like a rapier.

That would hurt!

[rebelmouse-image 18349454 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Durians!

Some foods need to be well thought out or you could get a quick backfire

[rebelmouse-image 18349455 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not yet ripe avocados.

Upsides:

  • Perfect size for over hand hurling
  • Hard as hell

Downsides:

  • Durable and therefore subject to being used in return fire by an enemy combatant.

Straight up savage!

[rebelmouse-image 18349456 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Hot oil. I'm going medieval on your a**es.

That is going to burn and potentially disable the enemy

[rebelmouse-image 18349457 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Concentrated ghost pepper sauce.

That's a bold tactic

[rebelmouse-image 18349458 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Banana, I'll kill them with awkwardness as I initiate eye contact while slowly eating it.

There are no chickens here

[rebelmouse-image 18347322 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A 10 pound, frozen butterball turkey.

I might get tired swinging it--but--you could break ribs, take out knees, and crack skulls with one of those things.

Another great projectile

[rebelmouse-image 18347545 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Potatoes.

If you don't know what they are - basically tubular shaped starchy vegetables

My strategy would be to throw them at people to knock them out.

A sugar shank

[rebelmouse-image 18349459 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

You ever had sugar crystallized to look like glass? You could shank someone with that

Maybe for something to slow them down

[rebelmouse-image 18349461 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Flour. Toss is like glitter and watch people cough a lung up

The flaming disk

[rebelmouse-image 18349462 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A frozen pizza that just came out of the oven. The hottest material known to man

If you are taking their word for it...

[rebelmouse-image 18349464 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cheetos.

They're dangerously cheesy.

Go for the eyes

[rebelmouse-image 18349465 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cayenne pepper. It's hard to fight if they can't see.

Tiny but deadly

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
