We aren't always prepared to defend ourselves...


A good weapon can determine the winner and loser in a fight. But not everyone carries a weapon, and for those who aren't so good with their fists, the nearest object will have to do. Some people get a little creative...

Redditor u/ThatLocalPessimist learned some new ways to defend themselves when they asked, "What was the most innocent thing you've seen being used as a weapon?"

10. Trick or... beat down?

"My friends and I were walking around trick or treating and two of them got into a little bit of a argument so he swung his bag of candy and gave him a nose bleed"

9. Sounds like one heck of a row.

"A knitting needle got stabbed through my sisters hand by me"

"So its safe to say that up until then you didn't have a tight-knit relationship."

8. The sweetest prison shank.

"I'm a Correction Officer of several years... So to answer your question the most innocent thing I've ever seen used as a weapon was cake and toothpaste. A inmate in one of our SHU cells stocked up several pieces of cake and several tubes of toothpaste. He dried out the cake and rolled it into a spike which he then took the toothpaste and applied several layers over the course of a couple days thus hardening it enough to use as a weapon."

7. You're using those wrong.

"A pair of safety scissors"

6. Laundry can save lives.

"Ironing board. The sound was glorious, but then I ran for my life."

5. I thought this only worked in movies?

"A magnifying glass was used by a kid to "burn" bugs in the sunlight.

He'd hold it above the bug, with the magnified sun rays scorching the victim."

4. Toys are dangerous.

"My brother threw a toy Mator (as in, the tow truck from Cars) at me and it knocked out a tooth"

3. Milk Duds are too hard to chew anyway...

"We put Milk Duds in a paintball gun when I was a kid and shot at our friends. Left some massive welts, but they're incredibly inaccurate."

2. No babies were harmed.

"My ex threw a stroller at me."

1. Words are the greatest weapon of all. 

"While my aunt is getting changed into a bathing suit years ago.

5 year old cousin: "mom I want to be like you when I grow up I just don't want your body."

If you live on this earth and you're fortunate enough to form long-lasting relationships with different people, chances are you'll know the pain of heartbreak. It's an unavoidable fact of life.

We are not guaranteed to stay with one person forever, as we were reminded once Redditor disturbance of mirrors asked the online community,

"People whose long-term relationship faded, what was the final straw that made you realize it was time to call it a day?"

There is always that "one." There is always going to be that person.

That person who you will always remember. And when they are the one who you regret losing most... they are the ghost that will haunt you forever.

I have a few escapees. I'll never know how it would've turned out. But that is part of why I'm haunted. I need to discuss....

Redditor u/AssistantNo1733 wanted to discuss all the times we've lost in love by asking:

Who's the one who got away?
