How a pot of tea could save your life

Drinking tea is good for you in many ways, but here's one way that you may not have heard of: as a means of self-defense.

An 81-year-old lady fought off a knife-weilding attacker with a tea kettle full of boiling water.

This story reminds me of a line from a movie:

A: A fish saved my life once.
B: How?
A: I ate it.

I'll send a free packet of Top Leaf Green Tea to the first person who emails me (contest at mellowmonk dot com) the title of the movie from which the above dialog was taken.
