How about a stun gun? then you mod the stungun so the electricity goes through a metal rod. Then you have a lovely stun baton!

Either look intimidating or learn karate or something like that. Of course remember that the best way to "win" in a fight is to avoid the fight entirely. Increase your running skills by grinding track fields. etc etc
What came first, the spamming or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids reading thousands, literally thousands of posts about anime, 4chan, flaming, goatse and emos. Did I make terrible posts because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I made terrible posts?

I'm sure Evol knows more about martial arts. 2 Forms of martial arts that are really pure about self defense are Judo and Jiu-Jitsu believe. Judo is much easier to learn IMO and still looks very intimidating. (grabbing someone who just tried to hit you and throwing him over your shoulder should certainly scare most bad guys away.)

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Well, like I've said many times, I live in Houston, and not only Houston, but Greenspoint. This place is really really ghetto. I used to walk home after work at midnight, and I must admit, I would get a lil nervous passing by random crackhead number 4, seeing as how I was remembering how my buddy curtis was just robbed at knife point by some crackhead for 77 cents!

But listen dude. You have to just look tough. Ya know im serious. Its like those little signs people put in there front yard to scare off would-be intruders. Same concept. These criminals are looking for an easy target. Make it look like you aint going down without a fight, or something. Look people in the eye, and always watch your back.

just my rx

It has always worked wonderfully for me...

You'll LOL but even your clothes have to look intimidating... in winter I use to go with a large black trenchcoat and military boots... ppl avoid to stare at me since I'm always looking every1 in the eyes

and when you are lost in a place you don't know, never look like you are lost... confused = bait

Man you don't need the clothes IMO your expression is good enough.

Get a fold out baton. You can fuck people up with them, or just do a nice trip or hit.

Just carry a switchblade, or like others have said, make a great deal of effor to look menacing. Look directly into people's eyes with a grimace on your face, anyone who doesn't immediatley look away will know you're all fucking business, and they will stay away from you.

Judo is much easier to learn IMO and still looks very intimidating. (grabbing someone who just tried to hit you and throwing him over your shoulder should certainly scare most bad guys away.)

Jiu-Jitsu is functionally worthless. Way too much emphasis on trying to try intricate counters and hitting pressure points that you'll never really hit.

Judo's only really good (like most grapples) against a single opponent.

To be honest, if you want self defense, go for Maui Thai, Brazilian Jui-Jitsu, Thai Kickboxing, boxing, Shotokan Karate, etc. It doesn't really matter what it is as long as you're confident. Above all, don't be stupid. It's not worth it to fight some dude with a weapon.

Baltimore's not that bad. At least you're not in Detroit, Memphis, St. Louis, or DC.

Edit: Also, don't take these people's advice on staring into their eyes. That's more likely than anything to get you into a fight, as it's seen as issuing a challenge, and somebody will take you up on it. That tactic doesn't really work once you're out of school.
