Not as clumsy or random as a blaster…

The deadliest thing (about) to hit the streets of the UK is apparently the “wasp knife“. Designed for taking down large, deadly animals, this knife has a compressed gas cartridge in the handle, with an outlet near the tips of the knife. Stab target, press button, inflate and freeze their insides. Nasty stuff. But then again, most ways of killing things are nasty. Killing isn’t nice. So should something like this, which can arguably save the lives of hikers, divers, and people who live in bad neighborhoods, be made illegal? I just can’t see making that call. Of course, they like to disarm people more over there. It’s a really ingenious design. I’m surprised it’s taken this long to come about.
