Wanna buy a Taser, Paris Hilton?

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 31 July, 2008

I was surfing some gadget review site today, not sure why, but I ended up skimming a new cell phone write-up. One of the lines that caught my attention was the line “…solid option compared to the (other cell phone) — but only if you live and die by instant messaging and you don’t mind being seen with Paris Hilton’s device of choice in public.”

I was thinking how can that be a bad thing? I’d love to be associated with some big time celeb using my products. I would have to name dropped to, I don’t want Paris Hilton running around town with one of my fashion pink C2 Tasers and have some other website’s sales go up, she’d have to say she got it at WorthProtectionSecurity.com or at least WorthProtection.com so they can follow the main link in. That link is shorter to remember.

Hey Paris, Please buy a taser from me and tell or text all your friends where you got it!

Maybe I can get Billy Mays to do an infomercial, that would be cool. Sadly I just saw Billy on TV doing some silly insurance commercial. What gives there? No more laundry detergents, stain removers, or silly putty glue to endorse? I mean freaking insurance Billy?? I got some pepper spray or a cool cell phone stun gun that you would be perfect to endorse. I just don’t have the advertising budget right now for it.

Hey Billy, “I’d gladly pay you Tuesday for a infomercial today”?

You guys let me know, ok?

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,
Rob

Mixed Martial Arts Champ KO’d by Stun Gun

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 30 July, 2008

Every now and then I get someone asking me if stun guns really work. When I offer to “show” them, they always change their mind. And I don’t even mean driving the stun gun into their abdomen and unleashing 10 seconds of full power. All they need to do is hold out their finger and let me pull the trigger for 1/2 a second at about 1/2 inch away. They will get the point and mentally multiply what would happen in an actual deployment of this self defense tool.

I think one of the problems is all the stupid amateur YouTube videos of drunk college kids gingerly zapping each other with low voltage stun gun models. Sure a 1/2 second jolt from an $18.00, 80,000 volt stun gun on a low resolution camera phone video will be less than impressive. Get a real stun gun, like one of our StunMaster 800,000 volt Cell Phone Stun Guns. Bury the stun gun into the target and actually apply the juice for a couple seconds. I’m betting the video will be less lame.

Take for example 28-year-old Claude Patrick, a well known mixed Martial Arts (MMA) instructor and competitor. The International Fight League (IFL) lists him at 6-foot-1, 170-pounds and “one of the best young athletes” in MMA.

The other day Patrick and several friends were attacked in a Quebec hotel room by several other men armed with stun guns and broken bottles. Now don’t go off on the tangent and start blaming stun guns and tasers. This attack could have just as easily involved baseball bats, knives or firearms. It is not the implement to be judged, but the actions of the malicious attackers that should be condemned.

“I don’t remember what happened; then again, a stun gun to the head will do that to you. I walked into my friend’s room to say good night and thanks for the show, and the next thing I know I woke up in the hospital,” said Patrick. Seven victims were beaten and stunned or Tasered by a group of about nine men reported the police.

“I’m assuming I got tased from behind. They said I got hit with a stun gun or a Taser and that’s all she wrote.” Patrick continued, “because if I would have been tased from the front, there’s no way that person would have left unscathed” in reference to his exceptional martial arts background.

On the street, you are much less likely to be attacked by someone of Claude Patrick’s physical and combative prowess. And in self defense, you are not going to announce the presence of your equalizer until the last possible moment before unleashing its dominance.

Just like this unsuspecting mixed martial artist, your attacker won’t even know what hit him.

And the winner of this bout, by a result of a Knockout… StunMastahhh STuunn GUUNNNNN!

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

That’s Not a Shark…

Posted by Rob on Tuesday, 29 July, 2008

I wish I could bust out my best Crocodile Dundee accent and say “That’s not a Shark, THIS is a Shark!” when referring to the female Australian marbled cat shark that was stolen from an aquatics shop in England, but I can’t. I looked it up and this shark looks kinda wussy compared to a real shark like a Great White or Mako.

None the less, the thieves who yanked the 2-foot-long shark out of its tank pulled off an impressive feat. Too bad the details weren’t caught on surveillance tape. If I had $20,000 worth of rare sharks sitting in a garage, I might invest in some protection. Surveillance camera, security alarm, an attack shark… Oh wait, that might not work. The male Australian marbled cat shark didn’t seem to defend his breeding mate very well. He didn’t lift a fin. The wuss. (Cue Jaws theme music here)

‘‘I’m just very angry really,’’ the owner, Peter Newman said. ‘‘Whoever came in there clearly knew what they were after. They probably would have taken the pair, but the male’s a bit harder to catch really.’’

Which explains how the female was shark-napped so easily?

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Joker Star, Christian Bale Denies Assault

Posted by Rob on Monday, 28 July, 2008

Holy Assault, Batman!

Joker star Christian Bale has denied that he assaulted his mother and sister after he was released from police custody last week.

Bale allegedly attacked his 61-year-old mother Jenny, and his 40-year-old sister Sharon at London’s Dorchester Hotel. A spokesperson for Bale said: “Christian Bale attended a London police station today, on a voluntary basis, in order to assist with an allegation that had been made against him to the police by his mother and sister.”

Bale denied the allegation, co-operated throughout the questioning, and gave his side of the story. He left the police station without any charge being made against him.

The arrest came a few hours after Bale attended the European premiere of Heath Ledger’s new Joker movie The Dark Knight in London. Ok, ok, it’s actually Bale’s new Batman movie, but all the hype and press has been Heath Ledger this, Joker that… What about Batman?

What other options does Christian Bale have to attempt to recapture some media attention? I mean it was his starring role and Ledger goes and tragically dies, effectively stealing the spotlight…

So was this a desperate publicity stunt or actual domestic abuse? Bale doesn’t have all his fancy Batman gadgets in real life, too bad his mom or sis didn’t have some gadgets of their own. A stun gun, taser or some pepper spray could have turned the tables on this wannabe superhero. ZAP! BAM! BIFF!

“Joker star Christian Bale Pepper Sprayed by Mom” or “Bale: Don’t Tase Me, Sis!” would have made some hilarious headlines.

Don’t let some joker blow up your mini van in Gotham City, let him have it.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Dog Bites Boy, Boy Bites Dog. Take That!

Posted by Rob on Sunday, 27 July, 2008

An 11-year-old boy in San Paulo, Brazil is recovering after being attacked by a pit bull dog as he played in his uncle’s back yard. But this isn’t just one sided, the boy actually retaliated and bit the aggressive canine back. A group of stonemasons were working nearby and intervened, chasing the dog away before it could do any serious damage to the boy.

Or perhaps saving the dog from serious damage from the boy. Gabriel Almeida, broke his canine tooth as bit into the dog’s neck. “I grabbed him by the neck and bit,” he told a reported. “It’s no big deal. It’s better to lose a tooth than to lose your life.”

Gabriel needed four stitches in his arm but other than that, came out of the incident only slightly shaken up. Pretty amazing story, pitbull attacks can get pretty ugly.

Mace Muzzle is a specially formulated pepper spray designed specifically for dogs. It has been proven to be effective in encounters with aggressive canines. If a dog attacks you, spraying this repellent in it’s face will stop him in his tracks.

Using the latest ultrasonic technology, the Super Dogchaser uses two ways to repel a dog. One is the discomforting but not harmful high frequency sound, audible to dogs but not to humans. And, the second is a super bright LED flashing strobe that temporarily blinds and confuses the dog. It helps stop the approach of unwanted dogs up to about 40 feet.

If all else fails, don’t be afraid to take a bite out of crime.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Not All Bears are Cute and Cuddly

Posted by Rob on Saturday, 26 July, 2008

A man claims he killed a black bear in self defense but he has to defend himself in court as he has been charged with shooting an endangered animal.

John Tanksley says his dog attempted to chase the animal off his property at Newcomerstown, Ohio but the 165 lbs bear kept coming back. While trying to get the dog back in the house, the bear charged the man and his girlfriend.

If Tanksley is convicted of the misdemeanor offense, he may face up to one year in jail and could be fined $1,000.

That $1000 could have bought a lot of Guard Alaska or Mace Bear Pepper Spray. Almost twenty-nine 9 ounce cans worth to be exact.

The proper use of bear pepper spray can help reduce human injuries caused by bears, reduce the number of grizzly, black or polar bears killed in self defense, and help promote the recovery and survival of these animals.

On average, 35 individuals are mauled by bears every year in the US. Kinda justifies $34.88 and maybe the extra $9.88 for the holster. I hate to hear the stories of animals having to be killed needlessly, but everyone has the right to defend themselves from harm.

Don’t become another statistic! Protect yourself with bear deterrent pepper spray and arm yourself against possible bear attacks with safe, humane Bear Pepper Mace.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,

Andy Dick in Trouble Again

Posted by Rob on Friday, 25 July, 2008

Comedian Andy Dick is in trouble with the law. Again. Most recently he was arrested in Murrieta California, when Police responding to a call at Buffalo Wild Wing. 42-year-old Dick, deemed extremely intoxicated at the time, allegedly walked up and groped a 17 year old female, grabbed her tank top and bra, pulled them down and exposed her breasts outside a bar.

Too bad the unfortunate victim, reportedly traumatized by the attack, was not armed with some pepper spray. A heavy dose of some pepper spray would have cooled Andy Dick’s jets right quick and adjusted his attitude.

Dick now faces charges of Sexual Battery, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Marijuana, and Public Intoxication. Marijuana and Xanax were found in Andy Dick’s pants pockets when he was arrested.

Andy Dick was attempting to leave the restaurant in a truck driven by a friend when police arrived and stopped the vehicle nearby. Andy Dick was fingered by two people as a curbside lineup was conducted. He was blamed as the man urinating outside the bar, causing a disturbance, and sexually assaulting the female minor.

Once known for is wacky and disturbing comedy, Any Dick as more recently becoming more famous for his many problems regarding his inappropriate and deranged behavior. Dick was arrested not too log ago for mooning at a McDonalds, for urinating on a sidewalk and a building, driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, hit-and-run driving and now sexual assault.

Dick was also removed forcibly at Yuk Yuk’s comedy club when he dropped his pants and exposed his genitals to the audience and during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, after repeatedly touching guest Ivana Trump.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Cheese-Sniffing Bomb Dog

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 23 July, 2008

Dick’s Market in Centerville, UT had a cheesy bomb scare this past weekend. The local police were investigating a report that a someone had left a duct tape covered device in a dry ice cooler. The grocery Store was closed for several hours while bomb-sniffing dogs and a bomb technician rushed to the scene.

They eventually found the device was simply a piece of string cheese, which was suspected that some juveniles may have planted in the store. There must not be too much for kids to do in Utah when school is out.

Milk, ice cream and other items costing thousands of dollars ended up spoiled and were thrown out during the panic.

Now if my dog Sam was called to investigate, we would have had an incident reminescent of the opening scene of the Underdog movie. In the movie, Shoeshine, a bomb-sniffing police dog confused a crate of ham for a bomb, which consequentally got him fired. But then paved the way for the whole Underdog superhero persona, so in retrospect, it wasn’t a bad thing.

In this case, Sam loves string cheese. Well he loves all food, but he has a thing for string cheese. I always have to buy the huge 24-pack of string cheese because everytime someone goes into the kitchen, Sam follows. If you innocently grab string cheese, a popular snack in my house, Sam will not leave you alone until he gets his own piece.

Now I just make it a habit of grabbing two everytime. One for me, one for the dog.

So back to the cheese bomb. I’m pretty sure Sam would not be able to control himself if a piece of string cheese was duct taped to the wall. He would probably scare the bomb tech in his excitement to retrieve the hidden cheese from the suspected bomb.

Perhaps a properly trained bomb-sniffer would be able to compose himself, but not Sam.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Changes in Shipping Costs

Posted by Rob on Monday, 21 July, 2008

Starting this week, we will be changing the $6.50 flat rate shipping for orders under $50.00 to a flat rate $8.95 shipping and handling for all orders.

The old rate was in place for quite some time, and this small increase is a result of the increasing prices of UPS and USPS freight across the board, as enforced by our supplier. Besides normal shipping costs, there is also the hidden money spent on boxes and packing material and the labor to pull, pack and ship the order. Unfortunately, these all add up.

UPS also has extras that they add to the cost. One is a fuel surcharge if the package is going to a remote location. UPS has their own definition of remote. Another is a $1.95 surcharge for residential deliveries, which is the bulk of out orders. They also charge extra for odd size boxes, etc. These extra charges are how UPS makes a living, those brown vans cost big bucks to keep on the road. And we all know how the US Post Office rates keep creeping higher and higher.

My other option, that many other self-defense retailers are taking, is the actual cost calculation based on weight and delivery distance. This option defers the entire shipping cost to the customer, with no supplemented discount for your business with them.

We at Worth Protection Security value your business and strive to offer low and competitive pricing on all of our products. I greatly prefer to continue to keep the shipping costs simple and affordable. I hope you all understand and can appreciate what drives this.

I don’t have any money, would you like some tea instead?

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 10 July, 2008

The actual news headline was “Woman overpowers thief with tea and sympathy”.

A 30-year-old Tokyo woman and her 6 month old baby was confronted by a knife wielding stranger in the hallway of her apartment building the other day. The man brandished a knife and demanded that she give him her money.

The mother told the creep that she didn’t have any money on her and he proceeded to barge into her apartment. Luckily this story has an unusual (happy?) ending and neither the housewife or child were injured in this attack.

Apparently, the woman calmed the man down by making him some tea and providing a compassionate ear. When offered the tea, the man accepted, I suppose as any honorable Japanese man would. The man then put the knife away and began a 20 minute monologue describing his less than fulfilling life story.

Probably quite sick of hearing the sob story, the woman ended up handing over almost $100 and ran out of the apartment. The man quietly left the scene as the woman called the police from a pay phone outside.

The police rushed to the apartment but the thief was long gone.

I can’t say that offering tea would have been my first choice line of defense, but I suppose if granted that opportunity and had a pot ready, I would have capitalized by making the tea as blazing, boiling hot as humanly possible and “accidentally” spilling the extra large cup in the thief’s lap.

Or if you don’t feel like wasting perfectly good tea, plan ahead and stop the situation before being bored to tears by some whining thief and tool yourself up with some pepper spray, stun gun or a taser.

Not all knife-wielding criminals will be so easily distracted by good hospitality. This Japanese woman was quite lucky to escape this situation unscathed. Wrong place at the wrong time victimization can range from simple theft to severe beatings, rape or worse. You never know what is on the mind of an assaliant.

Also remember, this mother had a 6-month-old baby in tow.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,
Rob
