    I am terrified about acid attacks. I saw recently that a gang of lads had acid squirted in their faces. It looks like a random attack. Why is the government doing nothing to stop these attacks? Also how can I protect myself? Sign my petition

    innit, acid attacks only work when they use Nitric acid, which is way harder to get in the UK than the rest of the world, even auto mechanics who actually need it have to use other chemicals for cleaning out engines... Maybe there's a new Heisenberg?

    yea so when someone dashes acid on your face, just pour on the baking Soda so the acid will react with it rather than reacting with your skin

    Useless if they throw a strong alkali like caustic soda in your face. Better carry around a bottle of vinegar too, just in case.

    In all seriousness though, the best thing to carry is a large bottle of water, so you can immediately rinse any corrosive substances.

    Sarcasm?

    I think you'd be in too much pain to be applying baking soda to your already corroded face...
