Ok, for once, I'll bite.

I'm also against lock picking books being sold to the general public.
As I'm writing this, I've got lockpicks on my desk - I've been attempting to open padlocks [1]. I don't do this so that I can steal things (if anybody wants to steal things, then buy a set of bolt-cutters - it'll be easier). I do it because I appreciate the skill.

I also study martial arts. I'm vaguely aware of how to seriously hurt someone (or hopefully defend myself if the need ever arose). Does this make more dangerous? Not really - I really don't ever want to fight anyone.

Knowledge doesn't make people dangerous. It simply allows people to do more. People are not made dangerous by knowledge [2].


[1]: 3 out of 5 so far. Damn.
[2]: Yes, this is facile. I'm aware that dangerous people can be made more dangerous by knowledge, and that there are gaping holes in this point of view.

It's not easy to juggle a pregnant wife and a troubled child, but somehow I managed to fit in eight hours of TV a day.
