There was some not at all real maille somewhere. Not at all real to the degree that it's just silver embroidery. Probably doesn't count.

I suppose I could probably kill someone with this pencil. It's pretty sharp. Barring that, I could use the sharp end of that tape dispenser. Or that stapler over there. And I'm sure the librarian has some scissors I could borrow. Or...I could bash someone's head into this metal pole repeatedly. I could probably also just kick or punch someone until they die. My teeth may also count as weaponry. And these bookshelves, if toppled, would probably kill someone. I can also reach a large pane of glass, which I can break and use to kill someone (probably myself, in that case.) I could also smash people with the computer screen, come to think of it. I could probably also cut these lights and have them fall on someone. If I could remove the flag, I could stab someone with the sharp end. Yeah, those are all the obvious ones.

Rust?

I guess if I swallowed my laptop battery, it'd kill me.

Car is worth maybe $20000. All of my money plus what I could sell all of my stuff for would be probably only be a bit more than this. So unless "everything I own" counts as a something, no.

I can play backgammon on my computer, and I can draw one in 10 seconds. A real one is buried behind Christmas decorations.
