Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Never Bring a Knife …

… to a stapler fight:

A robber high on drugs held up a bookies with a kitchen knife - then fled when a female clerk pointed a stapler at him.

Jonathon Ridley, 21, burst into a Betfred shop in Ryton, Gateshead and threatened staff with a knife as he demanded cash.

But when the manager grabbed a stapler and told him to get out, he was taken aback and left without a penny.

Next week, the British government will pass a law requiring background checks before each stapler purchase.

Probably not background checks, but I wouldn't be surprised if a shop refused to sell a staple gun to under-18s

It's particularly amusing that at 16 you can move to your own house, get married, and have children, but not buy a kitchen knife to prepare your food.
