    The Crafting of Weapons

    bryan boyer Feb 26 '05 2

    In the vacuum of Beer & Dogs (a weekly event that makes the trays smell like cheap pork products) yesterday, I ran into M.arch I AP student WILL WHEATON wandering the second tray with a beer in his hand and a vicious gleam in his eyes. I'm not sure if it was the beer or a deeper, more destructive impulse that encouraged him to bring it up, but WILL began recounting stories of fashioning weapons in studio during his ugrad below the Mason-Dixon. This is no prison-shiv, mind you, but a well crafted, precise instrument of destruction. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the xacto dart:



    "It's the twist that makes it fly straight," WHEATON insists. He was also careful to note that "even if you get hit, they don't go that deep."

      great weapon...works like a charm. I have actually become proficient at flicking two, underhand, from the same hand. the underhand flick is nice as nobody notices your draw-back. the was I site someone told me about a contest for the best office weapons...the winner was a paperclip claymore.
