Ok, so the world economy is going to hell in a handbasket, savings are disappearing faster than arctic ice, and wars of every flavor continue unabated on every continent. So let me take this opportunity to rant about neighborhood kiddies trashing my expensively-landscaped garden, and to propose a possibly brilliant idea on how to keep them at bay: landmines. No, not the tank-destroying monsters that would take out a whole neighborhood. Just small-yield devices that might take off a toe or two as the kiddies scamper through my vegetation with dogs and bikes and skateboards. Of course I would put up a warning notice: “Beware all ye who scamper here, yer goddam toes may disappear”.
Garden IED’s. You heard it first here. Gotta get down to Kleiner Perkins ASAP to get this idea funded.
