Buried somewhere, in a box I haven't looked into in twenty years, is a
small scrap of paper that came with a set of cheap giveaway steak
knives, that said, "Caution: Do not leave knives in children."

Surprisingly good advice, I thought.

the type of communication some of us do from time
to time, but it makes me seriously wonder about
the mental capacity and potential for personal
responsibility of the human race:
