Welcome to the Straight Dope Message Boards, duba, I think we're glad to have you with us.

However, both of your posts so far have been advertisements for shows on Court TV. That's not acceptable. If you're here to join our merry crew, you're more than welcome, and please read the rules and guidelinees. If you're just here to advertise, then I rescind my welcome and your posts will be de-magnitized.

Yeah, I would think Redeemer or Rail Gun should be on the list somewhere. :D

My favorite is either the chainsaw or crowbar. Each holds a special place in my heart. But I think my most frequently used weapon is some kind of sword, usually a longsword with some kind of enchantment. Probably a Flame Brand +2.

:D

Man, the plasma rifle never gets any respect. Just as fast as a chaingun, more damage, and three times the ammo.

But my favorite is still the Wizard's wand, with unlimited ammo and range, penetrating, and instant hits.

My biting wit.

When that fails, just biting.

The most commonly used weapon is clearly the knife. Most everyone uses a knife every day. Now, most of these times the knives in question aren't being used as weapons, but I believe it remains a fact that knives are the most commonly used weapons.

Although fresh fruit might be close.

Pillowcase full of doorknobs, preferably brass. More common than you might think.

Has anyone noticed how carefully the baked-goods industry guards the stats on cream pies?

I smell a conspiracy.

People always overlook a stick with dog poop on the end. Nothing gets 'em running away faster.

Does B.O. count, or are we avoiding biological weapons at this point?

I love the smell of conspiracy in the morning. It smells like... Boston Creme Pie?

I always liked the freeze gun. After freezing an opponent, I'd switch to handgun and say "Hasta la vista, baby," in an Austrian accent before shattering them into bitty pieces.

I agree. Plasma rifle was always my weapon of choice, along with super shotgun for those "personal" moments.

IRL, Lightsabre (amber flavour)

:D Poostick! Say I'm your mama!

I, however, prefer a sock full of quarters spun at high speeds in a clockwise manner.
