Stop to consider that society holds up weaponry as an art form---go to
any art/history museum and you are going to find artifacts of war held up to
be objects of beauty and technical skill. Even a blade from the guillotine
is on display at Madame Toussaud's in London. Ah, yes, I used to call my
papercutter "the guillotine." Which, by the way, was named after Dr.
Guillotine, a French physician, who was instructed to devise a "humane"
method of execution.

but it always amazes me
how many boys really LOVE and revert back to drawing that war stuff when
>they have free time. And they come up with all sorts of clever 3D paper
stuff that they say is not a weapon, but you could have fooled me!!!
