Banning kitchen knives? What’s next, sporks? I guess it’s not as ridiculous as banning salt or 32oz drinks. Seriously, if someone is intent upon doing harm to either themselves or others, they will find a way. Have you ever seen what a pissed off girlfriend can do with high heels? Not pretty. (Try banning their high heels. Go ahead, I double dog dare you!)
Call it what you will; population control, natural selection, destiny, thinning the herd, karma, luck of the draw, survival of the fittest, or law of the jungle. One way or another everyone must make the transition from this life to whatever is beyond. Death may not always be fair but it is the great equalizer. Young, old, rich or poor it always comes knocking. It’s nature’s way of keeping this world from becoming so over-crowded that it can’t sustain itself.
Try as they might, they’re not going to be able to protect everyone. No matter how much of a nanny-state environment they try to impose. You can’t stop CRAZY. And on that note, I think I will go hide my barbecue fork.
