The creme egg one isn't too bad, just don't burn it after you've had a few drinks.

I did a bit of sword fighting when I was younger. It sure gives people a different outlook on life when you produce a sword from your coat.
Learn to drive Arty and leave the swords to the big boys. :)

Many years ago when I was still fit, I took a fencing class. For the first few weeks, the women in the class just worried about defending themselves but then the lightbulb went off in each feminine head when they realized that they could ATTACK! Absolutely beautiful to watch. Totally empowering.

I did it with lives at stake, not lightbulbs.

Ahhh, but lightbulbs are ever so much more illuminating....

Try flashing a lightbulb in the East End of Glasgow when someone else is flashing steel.

I'll probably get slated by fellow Scots for perpetuating the image of ' No Mean City '. Stuff them !

The nature of the weapon used for self-defense is often much less important than the attitude behind it. This is why illumination (for women especially) is so crucial.

I once went to a dinner party at friends' in San Francisco who didn't have enough chairs for all the guests so I brought a folding chair, a flimsy thing of canvas and wood. When I left in the early am, a bit worse for wear from the amount of wine and other substances consumed, as I made my way to my car I became aware of two sleazy types following me who then did the classic split up to get on both sides of me for an attack. The lesson I learned in that fencing class kicked in and I brandished the flimsy chair which was absolutely no concrete defence but it stopped them dead in their tracks long enough for me to get to the safety of my car (where I shook for 10 minutes.) Attitude can get you very far.
