Step 1: Materials

Materials:

1 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Tools:

Mortar and Pestle

Film cannister (or other small container) to put the powder in.

Step 2: Grind It Up!

Take the Black Pepper and grind it up in the Mortar and Pestle for about ten minutes. The longer you grind it the better it will be. You could probably use a coffee grinder but then your coffee might taste a bit weird.

Step 3: Deployment

The easiest way to deploy this is to pinch some and sprinkle it in the air.
you could also use a personal fan to disperse the powder.

    it wont damage the eyes I did this before and all that would happen is it would make them sneeze... if it gets in their eyes it may hurt or just feel like something's in your eye blow in eye to get it out also just think about it, have you ever gotten sand in your eye?? thats what it feels like with a slight tinge... have fun dude

     Nothing a little pepper in my eye just caused some temporary damage for the last 22 months, nothing bad, no solutions even going to the doctor for eye drops. Its not so bad.

    Of course. Put a bit in a cup and blast it. I then went on to get a plastic jar and cut lots of slits in in. When you seal it up it all shoots out the sides as a mushroom cloud.

    baking soda just helps, i think it has to do with the fineness of the particles.
