In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Midnight Launch: The Survival Guide To Home
Posted on Sunday, November 14 2010 @ 16:24:44 Eastern

So you’re on your way to the midnight launch. You’ve brought your entertainment and the delicious munchies to endure the line filled with fans. A friend has even chosen to come and enjoy the time with you. “Three…two…one…HOORAY!” It’s now time to get your game, and boy you’ve been eagerly waiting to play the game, but how will you be able to protect yourself on the way back home?
 
Your safest route would have to be driving back home with your friend escorting your game back. This will eliminate most of the muggers that might approach you. Even if someone approaches your door that you don’t know, lock your doors first. If he/she tells you to get out of the car in a mean tone, don’t be a ******* and get out. You can easily drive away, chances are his/her two feet won’t be able to catch up to you.
 

 
What happens if you don’t know have a ride back? Well escorting the package unarmed is always a bad thing. Never go to a midnight launch without a source of weaponry. If you’re a hardcore gamer, you might have bought replica swords, axes, etc. Like a hardcore gamer like myself, I’ve bought a replica of Link’s Master Sword. This baby will always protect me from any danger.
 


Sadly, due to most places, carrying a sword is against the law to carry. If you’re not able to carry the sword, not to worry, a nice handgun could be a better option. Like a sword, in most places it’s illegal to carry, but you can always try getting a permit. I dislike the idea of carrying a handgun; they could shoot off even if you don’t want it to. This can result in getting yourself harmed and as well as others. I dislike usage of handguns the most in this scenario
 
“Well UghRochester, what if we don’t have swords or handguns?” Well, you can always carry a pocket knife. Unlike handguns and swords, carrying a knife with you (depending on the size and style) is completely legal in most places. I’m a Batman fan (if you couldn’t tell by my tattoo) so I carry around a double-sided Bat-Knife. This baby will always protect me. The big plus is it fits in your pockets and the muggers won’t know you have one. “Hey, give me your game!” “Ok, just joking here you go instead *insert stab sound*.” I feel carrying a knife is one thing you should always carry with you wherever you go.
 

 
Ok, enough with over-protecting thyself. If you have no weaponry to defend yourself, I guess all you can do is fight back with you arms and legs. If you’re a complete douche bag, you can always leave a friend behind (if one does come). If not, then you should really learn to RUN!
