Masters Degree in Explosives Engineering

Mr. SnarkyBytes liked this one. I'll bet he would also like the anvil.

What is it with some men and blowing things up? Mud-Rake made it clear that enjoying this kind of thing does not always go hand in hand with loving guns. I tend to think that's the exception to the rule.

As a general rule, do you think the kind of guy who likes to blow things up, the one who never outgrew the adolescent fascination with firecrackers, is the same kind of guy who likes guns? Is this from some kind of mental or emotional inadequacy, some kind of insecurity? I think it is.

What's your opinion? Please tell us.


  1. I know you don’t like the “a gun is a tool” saying, but you do realize that explosives are vital in construction, mining, etc… and whole careers have been made around using that tool. Some people were also suggesting explosives to stop the gulf leak. Why don’t you try boycotting things in your life obtained by those emotional insecure engineers using dynamite?

  2. +1 to TS.

    I think you should organize a Boycott! That'll show those crazy bastards!

  3. We must close the anvil loophole. Its for the children.

  4. Anvils? Pffft. What you really have to watch out for is the sledgehammer wielding maniacs!
