Ah Bricks! The real life legos of the world, used to make sturdy buildings ever since 7500 BC, but there are a minority of people who thinks there are other uses of the good old sun-dried clay block. Yep, throwing it, whether it's at people or through a snappy neighbor's car window, it's more easier to find, stronger and tougher than a small rock or if you did enough efficient excercise you could throw a cinderblock at the desired target, it would win 100% of your fights and totally decimate whoever's property it landed on.
