    Fun new uses for a u-lock

    Well, besides locking up your bike, what do you all do with your u-locks? I've seen some mention of self-defense in the SS/FG forum, and just the other day, I broke up a cat fight and chased the neighbor's cat with mine! Must've been quite a sight. So, any other intriguing uses for a u-lock?

    I fail to see how a U lock gives you any greater ability to break up a cat fight than your hands.

    Oooh! You could hang it on you dorm room door knob to signal to your roommate that you have a "special friend" over. That is, if you live in a dorm room, have a roommate, and ever invite over "special friends."

    I once dated a girl who could lock an 'ATB' model around her waist. Really, don't ask.

    They have been used by protestors/demonstrators to fasten themselves to objects; usually by locking around the neck....
