From this story: "Police saw the girl smashing a computer monitor with a keyboard and flinging the keyboard against a window, breaking it." Now I'm willing to bet money that was a fine IBM Model M keyboard, just like mine. Weighs a good four pounds with its solid metal backing plate. Useful for both typing and home defence. If you went out for a good day's civil disobedience and trying smashing in the window of a capitalist overlord with one of today's crappy plastic keyboards you'd just look laughable... :)
