I'll find myself in the middle of the ocean.

So in my family we have a tradition, on the 16th birthday, all the gifts that are given are weapons.
For my 16th birthday I got my first of many USMC KA-BAR knife, a wooden bat, and a 50 cans of pepper spray.
The reason we do this is almost everyone in my family moves out of home at the age of 16, so the weapons given are kept in the new home for protection, and if you unfortunately ever have to use a weapon, the person who gave it to you protected you by giving it to you, since they are no longer around to protect you themselves.
My cousin’s 16th birthday is on Sunday, and I bought her a wooden club. It’s really small, like maybe a foot long, but it’s a solid piece of wood, and it comes with this sheath you put it in that is padded so you can keep it under your pillow and it won’t hurt you if you whack your head on it.
But then I realized, the only one of the weapons I got that was ever really helpful was the KA-BAR, which is basically the most well made knife in existence, these days the real threats are when you’re out of the house so I wanted to get her something other than just the club. 
SO I was going to buy my cousin one of those but when I walked into the Military supply store and asked for one they told me the state laws have changed to unfortunately make it so you cannot carry a knife with a blade of over 4 inches.
SO I had to get creative. 
My first idea was brass knuckles, but then I found out WHOOPDEEFRIGGEN DOOOOO those are illegal here too.
So I found this little gem.
It’s classified as a keychain so it isn’t illegal, and it is possible to use as a weapon. You see it’s just a cute little keychain but you get in a pinch, and you slip your first and second finger through the eyeball holes and the ears (which are made of titanium so it won’t snap) are extremely pointy.
I’m very very excited for Sunday to give this to her. : )

lundsdotter:

The strongest ‘pound for pound’ muscle is the uterus: it weighs around 2 pounds but during childbirth can exert a downward force of 400 Newtons, which is one hundred times as strong as gravity and equivalent to the power in a fully extended modern longbow. 

I need masculism because I am afraid.

you should be

(via daniellethilette)

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

—Kurt Vonnegut (via barbryallen)
