Don't JADE Justify, Argue, Defend, Explain - don't bother, it just gives MILs more fuel.

I suggest one of these: to help with the interruptions. You may need a spare can.

You don't need to discuss anything with them. They are going to try to steamroll you whatever you say. You can inform them of decisions you are making, listen to advice, but the decisions are yours to make.

Stand strong. You've got this.

You are fucking lucky that she is ok. DO NOT let that happen again.

Carry one of these or something similar at all times when you’re walking with your daughter in a park, so that you can scare the fuck out of any dog that approaches closer than 5 feet. If you see a dog approaching your daughter, say the word cover loudly and step to the dog, because you will already have had a conversation with your daughter about the horn, and she’ll know that you intend on using it to keep dogs away from her. She will when hearing the word, cover both of her ears with her hands while keeping her eyes on the dog. You can actually try it once to show her how loud it is before you get to the park. If the owner of the dog starts yelling at you for scaring their dog, say the word cover again and give that piece of shit a blast. Grab your daughters hand and find a better direction. Life is meant to be enjoyed.

Buy an air horn. They are cheap on Amazon, and many can be refilled with a bike pump.
Not sure if this one is refillable, but it can be at your house for $8.

Every time they say your name or LO's name while speaking Russian, blast it. Don't let them talk. Aim it at MIL if you can. Just make sure the baby is in another room.

"Oh, the air horn is annoying? So is talking shit about me in a language I don't​ speak. If you continue to speak around me and about me in Russian, you won't be allowed in my home, and you WON'T be allowed near my child.

"And YOU, DH, can decide which pillows you would like with you on the couch tonight. We will discuss our issues, and then you will have plenty of time to consider what I've said while on the couch."

Edit: learning the language should be a high priority for you. You NEED to know what MIL is saying, and you can't trust DH to give an accurate, non-sugar-coated translation. She could be saying that LO looks like the mail man, and Wren is obviously a whore, she is going to play you for a fool, etc. And who knows how much DH is actually standing up for you.

Record one of their next conversations, preferably with something that can translate later, and find out what she is saying. Maybe just upload it as private in YouTube and only invite a volunteer or two from /r/Russia or something to translate it. I'd recommend a native speaker so that idioms and phrases are translated with the intent or subtle meanings intact.

Two words: Air Horn

u/HippyGeek · 6 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

Carry one of these

u/aclarkc · 6 pointsr/humansvszombies

That would explain the fairly intense argument I saw Erin and Darin having at one point. Darin was great when ever I spoke with him btw! It was frustrating when Eric was an npc and didn't even know his own role/rules. He got tagged and was suppose to be stunned but kept moving, that doesn't inspire much confidence. I can understand the frustration by MSU players, now that you point that out, still some scary anger out there. I'll also not be attending NvZ Athens unless there is some changes coming.

I hate bitching without offering suggestions so here are some improvements I'd like to see be made next year.

  1. Get a megaphone. I want to hear you talk and you probably have no voice at this point.

  2. Get an air horn everyone can hear First mission had a limp start when team can't hear the start.

  3. Mods need walkie talkies. The struggle was obvious to may, and players already pooped payed the price get marched around unnecessarily because no one was on the same page.

  4. Made it actually HARD for humans, more open world, more risk. Seriously humans will have the easiest last stand tomorrow, it's going to be 100% lame unless the mods do something crazy.

  5. Prep more! Seemed a lot of work had to be rushed the week of, if not the night before. Like rewriting the side mission cards, they had people freaking out trying the write them this morning! Get that shit done weeks before, you're setting yourself up to fail if that's the kind of stuff getting done the day of.

    Raise money, maybe charge $5 (I know people will freak about that). It's obvious cash could help in parts, better management in others.
u/kdknigga · 5 pointsr/flying

Hold one of these out of the window?

u/yearofthecat · 5 pointsr/breakingmom

Oh fuck that. Disconnect your doorbell and never answer the door.

Wait. Scratch that. If your kids are already awake, next time she comes, blast her with one of these!.

Actually, I need to order myself one now too.

u/virtualchoirboy · 4 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

Refillable Air Horn

Like this? Apparently you can use a bicycle pump to refill it. Comments say you get about 10 blasts per fill. Also appears to be handy with telemarketers.

u/Gnascher · 3 pointsr/bicycling

Get one of these and blast back at them next time.

u/skittles_rainbows · 3 pointsr/Teachers

Air horn?

Oooo how about a 120 db whistle?

u/Nuclear-Cheese · 3 pointsr/stlouisblues

Noise makers? What the literal fuck.


I even bought this maritime airhorn just in case the stadium was too big to hear an individual plastic horn.

u/Dthdlr · 3 pointsr/nova

That's a valid personal choice.

However, I'm not sure the size would work.

This one maybe. It's 120 dB which is ok and might work but it's a bit bulky and even in a purse - how do you get to it quickly?

Consider Pepper Spray AND combine it with training. It's smaller, likely to be more effective than an air horn, you can have it in your hand as you walk etc. But the training is key.

I am NOT recommending these instructors or the course as I don't have experience with them but I wanted to provide some link/info for you to look into. In addition to the product, they have trainers in the NoVA area enter your zip code and find what works for you.

u/milomidnight · 3 pointsr/UnresolvedMysteries

> A sincere and honest question: since the AT goes through black bear territory, would you carry a firearm on the AT (for those sections where it is legal)?

Probably not a firearm (but im from the UK so any firearm is alien) but i would seriously consider bear spray as its a light can that shouldn't affect the load.

At the very very least i'd carry a compressed air horn similar to this as it can be used to scare off wild animals, has no licensing need, and can be used to signal in an emergency. Like a laser pen its something that is incredibly useful for signalling that people don't think of.

As for maps/compass, everyone in the UK would take an OS map and compass (as well as gps if only via smartphone).

Considering how different a landscape can appear depending on weather conditions i'm just flabbergasted at the fact people in the US would even consider not taking a map.

u/KerrickLong · 2 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

That's when you take one of these suckers, blast it in his ear, and shout, "HOW DO YOU LIKE IT WHEN I CHANGE WHAT YOU'RE HEARING‽"

u/ManForReal · 2 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

Treat her like someone else's bratty child, acting out in your home: Fair, firm and unemotional. Unimpressed.

You didn't raise her. It ain't your job to teach her manners. You are un-intimidated. As she is an adult rather than a bratty child you can blast an [air horn]( a/ref=twister_B07VV6HKT5?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1) in her face if she won't shut up. And say "Stop it!" in an adult tone. Speak no more loudly than you must. If she starts yelling, blast her again and say "You can talk when I'm finished. Until then, act like an adult. You are one, not a bratty toddler acting out in the grocery store." Channel your inner kindergarten teacher: Be calm and in control. "Four-year-olds throw fits, Mom. Find your grownup or you're in time out."

u/ShamrockShart · 2 pointsr/news

Life Pro Tip: Carry a small fog horn when out and about. They are very effective at putting distance between you and an aggressive dog. This has saved my life. I have this one. Way better than pepperspray which can miss the target or float back at you.

u/AuthorSAHunt · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Actually, you know what would be good? Get an air-horn. It's loud as shit and people will look at you every time you use it. It'll startle anybody messing with you and make everybody in earshot look directly at the two of you. Plus, if he takes it away from you, it won't hurt as much as a knife.

u/fatangaboo · 2 pointsr/AskEngineers

If you want to transmit "logic zero", blow on a police whistle. It emits a sound whose frequency is 1800 cycles per second.

If you want to transmit "logic one", blow an air horn like this one. It emits a sound whose frequency is 750 cycles per second.

Now you have a way to embed information into frequency. First convert the information into binary digital data. Then blast out the information (zeroes and ones) using a police whistle and an air horn.

u/kebelebbin · 2 pointsr/OkCupid

I stick with the classics: CO2 Aerosol Shoreline Marine Air Horn.

Three short blasts should do it. Silence over.

u/xadies · 2 pointsr/funny

120 db

Both of which are still louder than the average car horn and this is definitely not the loudest air horn out there.

Congrats on proving yourself wrong.

u/am336 · 1 pointr/MTB

These things are amazingly loud and cheap.

Survival horn

u/Just_Call_Me_Captain · 1 pointr/AskReddit

even better would be a refillable air horn. Let the fun last forever

u/XS4Me · 1 pointr/Whatcouldgowrong


You know its bad when you begin to consider it

u/spiller37 · 1 pointr/ChronicPain

Forget the bell try something like this.

u/GotMyOrangeCrush · 1 pointr/CrazyIdeas

Wolo 497 iHorn Mini Hand Held Gas Horn

  • Compact size

  • Simple press of a button delivers a powerful blast that will be heard from a distance

  • Ideal for marine, jogging, camping, sports events, etc.

  • Great anytime a powerful horn is needed
u/comradesean · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Wouldn't it be better to carry an airhorn?

u/Justinicus · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

Easy. $15. $12.45

Buy several to really multiply the drown-out-ability.

u/ABirdOfParadise · 1 pointr/AskReddit

There's also those adopt/buy/name a star things that were oh so popular once upon a time.

My thought for loud things would be an air horn. It costs 1 cent apparently? Well you get raped on shipping, but $5 isn't horrible.

Or those cheering cow bells, the ones you hear at the Winter Olympics.

u/aikoaiko · 1 pointr/misophonia

Of course you lash out. It is like getting stung by a wasp. Or bite your lip. That shit hurts.

If you want to explain it and ask for help, I suggest this.

Letter to Friends, Family, and Coworkers

If you want to train her with revenge, I suggest this

Shoreline Marine Air Horn Can and Blow Horn, 1.4 ounce

Carry it on your belt. Empty the entire can next time. (wear earplugs though). You are allowed to do whatever you want in your own house.

u/SpeedySid · 1 pointr/boostedboards

I used to have these issues when inline speedskating and walkers taking up the entire bike path... Then I got on of these that fit in my palm with ease. A simple blast was sufficient to get them to jump rather quickly out of the way. If they get in your face, it's pretty easy to just toot it again saying "what's that, I can't hear you!" ;*)

Also I got pretty good at mimicking a police siren with my voice which also clears the path pretty well.

u/Thedustin · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

Yeah, I'm thinking of buying a horn on amazon. You might have finally persuaded me to spend $5.00. haha

u/Torquemata · 1 pointr/Dogtraining

Just gonna drop this here. Hopefully it lands in your mail bag.
Shoreline Marine Air Horn, 1.4 oz.

u/LovaDesigns · 1 pointr/whatisthisthing

That's an air horn, don't know the "correct" name for that though.

Edit: Apparently they're called "air blaster horns"

u/Kirbacho · 1 pointr/BikeLA

whoa! i didn't even know they made small ones! i was thinking something like this!

u/Stoshels · 1 pointr/BikeLA

Good point on it being bulky, so you got me thinking. This one seems tiny and coincidentally the first comment is about scaring off coyotes.

Thanks for the tip on the Big T climb.

u/Ecopilot · 0 pointsr/bicycling

Small emergency horn in the jersey pocket.

Kujo will never know what hit him and will think you a god for the rest of your interactions.

u/mneptok · 0 pointsr/guns

You might consider a handheld compressed air horn instead of the mace. You can fly with it.

And experience tells me making noise like this is going to deter just about anything you'll find in the Big Blue Room.

u/finalrice · -27 pointsr/SeattleWA

What violent unprovoked attacks are you talking about and where? Drunken college students? Drunken developers? Drunken engineers? Drunken military personnel on leave?

Curious what the context of your question is. Like anytime you consider sprays there's the risk of misuse, or of them using it against you, which could put you in a worse position. And if you're concerned about military personnel then I'd caution against anything like that because they're trained and you're not.

Best bet is to try de-escalation techniques and try not come across as threatening. De-Escalate: How to Calm an Angry Person in 90 Seconds or Less

If you can't de-escalate, then these would stun someone enough for you to get away and call for help without risking hurting yourself or others even if they take it away from you.
