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."

But while some people simply succumb to being lonely, others will find ways to help them cope with, if not completely forget, being all alone.

Redditor No_Blackberry_6286 was curious to hear the different ways people have of coping with their loneliness, leading them to ask:

"Reddit, how do you cope with loneliness?"

Like how in 2022 is such and such still around?

Y'all have heard of email right?

I know cisgender straight people still have a lot they don't understand.

What do you need to know?

Redditorhre_nftwanted everyone to feel comfortable enough to be as aloud what they've been waiting to ask a queer person. Safe space for all. They asked:
