Self defense for women, or anyone wimpy like me
There is no defense against "blitz" attacks by
psychopaths-- they will wait to isolate a victim

||Either outcome should elicit the attention you desire, most likely from the flocks of undergraduate physicists attracted like moths to a candle.
||A non-lethal suicide vest?
||Words like "symmetric implosion" would be appropriate.
