An ex-marine has written what we hope you’ll agree is a tongue in cheek article on 8 different ways to kill someone with an iPod.
I never realised an iPod could be such a lethal weapon…..
1) Break into pieces and use the edge of the glass screen to cut a person’s throat.
2) Remove a sock, put the Nano inside it and whack your victim on the temple with it.
3) Use it to reflect sunlight into a drivers eyes blinding them and causing a deadly accident.
4) Use the headphone cord to choke them.
5) Dig a pit and leave sharp, wooden stakes to build a letahal trap. Cover and camouflage the trap, and leave the iPod on top as bait.
6) Use the lithium-ion battery pack to poison a person’s food or drink
7) Download a cheesy Carpenter’s song (“We’ve Only Just begun” is recommended by the merciless ex-marine) and tell your victim you will give him or her the iPod if they can listen to the song 100 times.
8) Hide the Nano in a bowl of Lutefisk and take it to the annual Norsefest Lutefisk Eating Competition in Madison, Minnesota. (Most European readers won’t get this one for sure!)
