On the defensive side, an acquaintance of mine once fought off a physical assault by executing a number 12 vertical strike on the attackers head, using a telephone handset. This defense effectively stopped the attack.

These two accounts illustrate the danger posed by - and the usefulness of - common, everyday objects. Do you have any stories of improvised weapons use in real life (the term improvised weapons defined as an implement whose primary function is not for combative purposes)?
