“For the children.” SurvivalBlog’s Editor at Large Michael Z. Williamson sent this: Lawn darts banned — now not even replacement parts are allowed. Why? because just three children died over the course of several decades in a nation of 300 million people. Statistically, your chances are much higher of dying from being struck by hailstones, or dying in a human stampede, or being crushed by a toppling vending machine. If the ever-watchful Nanny State really wants to keep us really safe, then they should ban bicycles, which kill thousands each year. Oh, and to use the same perverse logic, and all the spare parts for bicycles should be destroyed, in case someone fiendishly decides to build one.
