This it?swillden said:I can't find the link right now, but an advisory panel of UK doctors actually have recommended banning long, pointy knives. They even got a bunch of chefs to say that long pointy knives aren't necessary. You can do everything with short pointy knives and long blunt knives.
Did anyone else pick up on this guy's name?"We have seen the emergence of a worrying trend in relation to knife crime," said Scotland Yard's Deputy Assistant Commissioner Alf Hitchcock.

OTOH, one could argue for banning toilet seats based on health reasons. Humans aren't meant to sit down to "go" -- and "going" too long while sitting is often said to be a factor in developing hemorrhoids... so I say, ban the toilets! Let's revert back to the eastern-world's "squat toilets"!!! :ROFL:
I'm glad I left in 2005. This is the same mentality that banned the painkiller co-proxymol because people would use it to commit suicide. Still I'm glad to see that all of these bans are working and that we don't have any increases in crime or suicide....oh wait!I'm glad my ancestors left Britain in the 1700's.
