It strikes me that with my shiny new (used) laptop and excellent (two-year-old) digital camera, my lust for technology has been sated. So the only thing I can envision myself needing in the next year or so is a taser, because you never know when you'll need to stun someone.
Has anyone seen the show 'Angel'? If so, have you noticed exactly how many times the eponymous hero gets taken down by a jolt of electricity? Seriously, it's always the tiny little self-defense tool that gets the job done; those kids play with homemade axes and medieval crossbows day in and day out, but in the end it's the modern toy that brings the baddies down.
So there's my rationale for placing a weapon at the top of my wishlist. Granted, a crossbow would indeed be far cooler to have, but in terms of function, I think I need a taser.
