    Perhaps the Brit citizens wouldn't even need knives if the Bobbies were issued louder whistles to protect them, SMH.

    Does no one have to open boxes in London?

    I used to carry a larger knife than I do now. It was wearing out my slacks and jeans. So, tended to leave it on my dresser. My wife asked for a knife to be able to use, so she now keeps that knife around the house for her use: opening boxes, trimming plants, etc. So, she carries a bigger knife than I do now! And both of them would get us arrested in London! And those are just our pocket knives!

    I guess they all eat baby food and don't have to slice pepperoni, split bagels, spread peanut butter, slice cheese or cut a nice steak.

    Maybe they're not allowed to have teeth?

    Ah, so they must ban grinders.
    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and personal responsibility of man.

    Inmates in prison have been known to rub spoons or other pieces of metal on concrete floors in to razor sharp blades that are called shanks.

    Add concrete floors to the ban list.
