…The KZ Xtreme Defense Pen is a killer?

KZ Xtreme Defense Pen

Any pen can write, and some pens can also serve stylus duty, but only the KZ Xtreme Defense Pen can write, serve stylus duty, and kill a man.

That’s because the KZ Xtreme Defense Pen is designed to serve as a defense tool in times of need, with a CNC Machined, Type II Class 3 Hard Anodized, 6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum body and a threaded cap and slip free, knurled center that ensure you can get the job done when your pen needs to do a little more than just jot down a list of groceries that you need to pick up at the store.

Sure, you’ll probably never need to use the pen for actual self-defense, but wouldn’t it be nice to know that you could if you needed to?

…The Pocket Shark will kill you?

Pocket Shark

The Pocket Shark is as much a self-defense weapon as it is a pen!

Designed to be “the biggest, baddest permanent marker around”, it’s made from glass-reinforced plastic, and features walls that are four times thicker than similar markers.

What this means is that it’s designed for impact, and in an emergency can become an efficient Yawara stick for driving off an attacker. Plus, the screw-top cap won’t pop off like other caps in the heat of battle.

It’s definitely more than just a regular pen, but then again, who wants just a regular pen anyways?

…St. Pauli has a new Girl, and her name is Katarina Van Derham?

St Pauli Girl Katarina Van Derham

After what must have been a very long and grueling search, St. Pauli has finally found their St. Pauli Girl for 2009, and it’s a “successful print and TV model” named Katarina Van Derham.

In case you were worried that the St. Pauli Girl was going to be anything less than perfect, just be happy to know that Katarina is 5’6” tall with blonde hair and blue-green eyes, is fluent in five languages including English, Slovak, Czech, Russian and Polish, has modeled for Vogue, Marie Claire, FHM and Iron Man, has been featured in ad campaigns for AT&T, Bicycle Casino, Rockstar Energy Drink and Dodge, is trained in Krav Maga, a military self-defense technique, enjoys kick-boxing, wrestling and playing basketball, volleyball and table tennis, and when she’s not modeling, she’s developing her own make-up line and working on architectural graphic design.

Oh, and she looks good in a Bavarian Beer Girl costume. (Holding Photoshopped beers if you look closely at the image above.)
