You can kill someone with many seemingly innocent household objects with no modification, including, but not limited too, a spoon and a straw.
Ground match heads make a decent rocket fuel. Just don't use the strike-anywhere matches. They don't like it when you grind them up.

If you're trying to get to the roof, and you accidentally set off the alarm, just RUN. RUUUUN.

Yogurtland is much cheaper and tastier than any other place. More variety, too.

Don't tell the police anything.

If you have to walk down extremely sketchy, ghetto streets... have someone with you. Seriously. It doesn't matter if either of you is physically imposing -- people who want to mess with you generally do not want the risk of one of you getting away and giving their description to the police. I'm extraordinarily thin and my girlfriend isn't exactly Candace Parker, but having two people together made the thugs generally ignore us when we were walking through a really bad part of Durham while getting to the grocery store. Criminals go for easy prey. Prey that sticks together aint easy. Avoiding conflict by being with a bunch of people actually does work, usually. Also, there was a shootout on the block we walked through a few days later.

So uh I guess the moral there is try to stay away from the wrong place in the wrong time, okay guys.

The other trick is to make everyone else assume YOU are the crazy people they were warned about. Walk with your head high and act you belong there. Don't stare anyone down though. (I go walking through downtown when I can't sleep at night)

If you come to nationals next year I'm dropping you off in North O with a confederate flag stapled to your back, and then I'll set up a betting pool on how long you live.

B-b-b-b-b-b-but can we do it to someone from South Carolina? I find that much more appropriate...I only seceded because Louisiana bullied me into it.

Well, if Omaha is as safe as you think it is, you have nothing to worry about right? wink.gif


(and for the record, no Omaha is not a bad city, but like everywhere else, there are some places you don't want to be at certain times.)

AHEM...

The best places to buy music are the ones where the music isn't full price. Digging around in used book stores and pawn shops can be FASCINATING.

Everyone needs to work on their Radio Voice. Never know when you'll have to make an announcement, so BE PREPARED.

Actually, this is good, but it's not comprehensive enough. Work on two other things: your dramatic reading voice, and your ability to maintain a straight face while doing something ridiculous. Think: Monty Python.
