you should be able to get pepper spray at a police office, i've been begging my mom to take me so i could just get some for fun....and of course if i do get attacked. if you do use it, aim for the eyes, then kick the nuts. very good combination and more useful in that order. also if no one's looking...kick him while he's down.
i know how you feel about being short though. i'm 5' and the shorted person out of 230 in my class, i'm in 10 grade, and that's basically how tall i'm going to get. damn asian genes!
