Have you ever had your hands slapped by a ruler like nuns used to do to their students back in the day? I have. Trust me, it is an extremely effective form of punishment.

From gangster school supplies to practical tattoos, check out the 10 ridiculous rulers which will have your knuckles quivering in fear.

Implications - Gone are the days when consumers would look at something basic like a ruler and ask for nothing more or extra.
