One day I will stop being stupid about women.

Most likely, it will be the day I die.

I'm referring, of course, to the news that someone was raped on my local college campus. Just found out about it today, though apparently it happened early October.

But don't forget: it's not particularly effective against people under the effects of drugs and alcohol. Also, it will often make them more hostile.

Darq: That is why you run like fucking hell after you use it.

Patty: I already have one of those! Unfortunately, it's just too big to be practical and I'm not sure where it went. I should really consider finding it, though, it's waaay safer than the 3inch folding knife I do have.

You carry a knife 'for protection'? Really?

Not really for protection. It's mostly for cutting string and opening boxes.

Plus okay I admit it, part of the reason I always have a knife on me is that I have a bag that says "Please be kind. I'm doing the best that I can. And I have a knife." and I think it's more funny when it's true.

Heard some yelling outside my apartment... generally not too out of the ordinary. It sounded angry though, so I look out the window to see some guy choking another guy on the ground.

Freaked out. Called 911. It's already broken up, so I may be wasting everybody's time.

Just kept thinkin'... you know there was a guy stabbed outside a bar in this town a few years back.

Feel kinda stupid though. I think the bouncer broke it up.

I just... couldn't live with myself if somebody died right out side my place and there was something I could have done to stop it.

Well Pissed Off Dude #2 left with a ripped t-shirt and a swagger and Pissed Off Dude #1 is throwing rocks at a trash can.

No sign of the police.
