    Look, you might think you are a badass but, until you own one of these, you aren't truly a badass. And, just in case you are wondering, this is technically a "statement ring," not a set of brass knuckles. Grab one of these for the next time you need to make a "statement" on someone's forehead. :cool:

    Even when getting a beat down, I couldn't take someone wearing that seriously. Yea, it'd hurt, but damn. What is this? The Geek Mafia (no relation to the Geek Squad)?

    Hmm... I guess this brings new meaning to that "if I ever meet you, I'll control-alt-delete you" line from Weird Al's It's all about the pentiums song.

    I programmed ctrl+alt+del to just one key on my keyboard so do not need. I set progs that need admin elevation to require ctrl+alt+del and use it a lot so that is why.

    And it needs to be backwards to work properly. Not only would the owner be a laughing stock as a thug, he would be a laughing stock as a nerd as well.

    Just remember a few states have made it a felony to own Brass Knuckles.

    They're banned in Canada too as a "Prohibited Weapon", hilariously this fits the legal definition too. Anything metal designed to be worn across the knuckle with a band or bands around the back. And if you think, "no cop will arrest me for this silly novelty", you're wrong they're crazy hardcore about weapons offenses here.

    Pretty cool though.

    On my keyboard, both the Ctrl and Alt keys are bigger than the Delete key....

    I thought the same thing at first, but there's actually just a white speck in the 'l'. if you look on his site there is a different angle of the same ring with the same white speck

    That and the key sizes are reversed. Ctrl and Alt should be large. Del should be small.

    So I guess this is for those times you have a PEBKAC error and you need to turn it off and on again?
