God save the Queen

And the British citizens, who will soon be relegated to saying "Boo!" to ward off potential attackers. Of course, scaring muderers, rapists and other assorted thugs will probably be ruled as violating the human rights of criminals. Anyway, apparently there's a move afoot to ban long, pointy knives. WTF?! No really, WTF?!

Everybody was kung foo fighting because weapons were banned as fast as lightning. It is a little bit frightening knowing hammers are good for close in fighting.===evil laugh=== Now only the government has guns and knives. I feel so much safer....Not!

I don't think it's a move to ban them in any way, but, really, "Warning! Knives Cut!" is just plain stupid. People get paid for this? Ludicrous..

Still, saying that, I once did get rid of a kitchen knife when I lived with my ex. He was not a very nice person...and the sight of it was often tempting :-)

They'll have to ban car aerials. (You can make zip guns from them.) And CDs. (Break 'em in half and stab people with the points of the half-moon pieces.) Wood. (Pointy sticks.) Toilet paper. (Soak a wad in water, hold over your victim's mouth until he drowns.) Baguettes. (You ever hefted a day-old baguette?)
