Everything can be a murder weapon if used right.

...if used right.

I don't know. If I use a shovel right I'll most likely just dig a hole, not murder someone.

@Vic8760 ...if used right. I don't know. If I use a shovel right I'll most likely just dig a hole, not murder someone.

If you use the shovel "correctly" you'd be digging a whole, but to use the shovel "right" could mean any number of things that don't require digging.

True. This reminds me of a short story by Roald Dahl about a frozen leg of lamb.

I've heard something similar, "anything can be a dildo if you try hard enough". I wanna say parks and rec but we can't trust my 5am memory.

Reminds me of the Riddick "death by teacup" scene

@Achilles982 A one inch piece of string

I have you restrained. I then use the string to tie around a finger tightly. I feed you and care for you so you don't die in other ways. The tied finger loses circulation and dies. You die quickly from infection caused by this. The string is the murder weapon. Before you say infection is the murder weapon, blood loss or lack of adequate medical attention is not considered the murder weapon when shot by a gun.

Fair enough, points for the creative method. How would you kill me with a single clover leaf?

@Vic8760 By accelerating it to relativisitic speeds.

That would work, but whatever device you used to accelerate it would be considered the murder weapon. You don't call the bullet the murder weapon when somebody's shot, after all.

I actually went over this with a feather... you can simply place it in space and use gravitational assistance to accelerate it. The movement of the planets would be enough to give it some inertia to start.

However... it would take a lot of time, and an absolutely ridiculous amount of accuracy or luck... unluck? To have that happen. You wouldnt need relativistic speeds either, mach 7 should do it, I only said that because anything going a significant fraction of lightspeed hitting you would kill you, except perhaps a single atom, which would probably just pass right through unnoticed.

Thats a hard one. If you are deathly allergic to clover than we are done.

There are poisonous clovers though not lethal enough to kill with one clover leaf. Over time if you eat a lot you could die from red clover and I guess I could argue that it was one clover leaf too many. That's kinda silly though.

A ladino clover leaf can grow up to 3 inches long. I feel like that's big enough to suffocate someone idk.

@potatobunny Fair enough, points for the creative method. How would you kill me with a single clover leaf?

put it under your eyelid, wait until you get an infection and not treat it. it's close to the brain so we don't have to wait long either

This is probably the closest one could get to killing someone with a clover

Chances are the eye would push the clover out naturally, you'd have to prevent it from coming out with something else which might affect the rules or something lol

Maybe if it was a whole clover with a decently thick stem you could jab it at the eyeball and hope to make a puncture

A one inch piece of overcooked spaghetti.

This statement reminds me of that guy that can make knives out of anything.

Yes, even this slice of bread in my hand!

@-avoidingwork- Yes, even this slice of bread in my hand!

Yep! You can choke on bread. Shoving it down someone's airway would probably kill them. Or idk set it on fire or something.

@Heinerprahm Is toast not still bread?

What is toast if not bread everlasting?

@Heinerprahm Is toast not still bread?

Toast is not bread. It has been burned which is a chemically irreversible process. Therefore it is toast.

@Heinerprahm Is toast not still bread?

No, it's toast. The name changed, therefor making it no longer bread, or at least, not vanilla bread.

Ban everything

Or if used wrong.

Not murder if due to negligence.

@Nickyikky Or if used wrong.

Literally the first thing that popped in my head too.

@Nickyikky Or if used wrong.

Then by logic, everything is always a murder weapon.

Any machine can be a smoke machine if you use it wrong enough

@Huemaninstrument Any machine can be a smoke machine if you use it wrong enough

Learned it the hard way several times when moved from a 110V to a 220V place

This is actually a common misconception. All machines are really powered by smoke, the electricity just keeps the smoke in. That's why so many machines smoke when they break, it's the power escaping.

Once had a a kid I went to school with assert this while we were waiting for the bus. The rest of us then proceeded to challenge him to explain everything that popped into our heads. He convinced a few of us. Years later after he graduated, he became a marine I'm even more convinced that he could now.

Translation:

There was a kid I went to school with who made a similar statement while we were waiting for the bus. We all gave him statements which would counter this argument, but he was able to find an explanation for all of them.
After he graduated, he became a marine, so I believe he is capable of the statement made.

kill somebody with a drop of water (without shooting it at them at the speed of light)

contextrips avatar contextrip Yeah You Are +2Reply
@Nickyikky Ok 99% the speed of light

That is close enough to the speed of light that whaever would happen at the speed of light would happen at 99%. Anything that travels at speed if light or is made to do so will convert to light itself. Per the mass/ energy equalency understanding mass and energy are the same thing, their state of being in mass form or energy form is dependent on their existential velocities. A photon is a photon because it exists at velocity C if photon exists at velocity not C then it is no longer a photon. An electron is traveling close to C and so it is a electron, if you can move its speed up then it will not be a electron it will be a photon. All elementary speeds are fixed if you variate the speeds even slightly the properties change. Hence speed is a byproduct of the specific matter in question, if you change the byproduct you are then ofcourse changing the product also.

If water moved at speed of light then it wont be water it would be light moving. If you tried to move water or anything else towards speed of light it would convert back to energy and again you would have light moving

Sir, I put it to you there are many things that could not be a murder weapon and kill someone.

  • A teaspoon of jello.

  • A foam ear plug

  • One fingernail clipping

  • a strand of hair

  • a small amount of cotton candy

  • Brussels from a tooth brush

  • bubbles

  • plaque from someone's teeth

  • one inch of sellotape

That's excluding intangible things that likely fall under the definition of "everything" (e.g. data)

@Pheniz21 Sir, I put it to you there are many things that could not be a murder weapon and kill someone. A teaspoon of...

The teaspoon could be stabbed into a persons eye. Jello is just a bonus.

The hair could be from a animal that they are deathly allergic to. Same with the mail clipping.

A small amount of cotton candy could cause complications for a diabetic person.

The toothbrush bristles if could cause damage and infection in the intestines if enough are swallowed.

Bubbles could be filled with deadly gases.

Poor dental hygiene is it's own weapon.

And sellotape is a easy one. Just dissolve the solvent in acetone, add some high strength peroxide and bam you have a highly unstable explosive.

/s of course.

You'll die if any if those things got injected into an important part of your bloodstream though.

@-avoidingwork- But can you make perfectly good mashed potatoes out of a keyboard?

Well some dude did make hot sauce out of plastic gloves i believe, and cotten candy out of cotten. So if its possible the way cam be found.

@Pheniz21 I made a perfectly good keyboard out of mashed potatos

Eat mashed potatoes, use potato energy to work in keyboard factory. See, it's possible.
