"Playing with knives….."What's going on?
Have I awoken from a 5-year coma following my shoulder operation 2-months ago and no one has told me?Once I overcome the grogginess following the ½ hour procedure, and had managed sufficient sleep and snoozing, I checked my mobile phone for messages noting that those that had come through all stated the same date - 29th March 2006 - that I had gone into hospital, only it was 6-hours later and I was feeling a hell of a lot more pain in my right shoulder … plus it looked damn messy to!
Yet, it appears as though the world has gone even more insane overnight than I had remembered … 51 stabbings there were over this last weekend in the UK, 2 of them fatal. The Police currently have a weapon, or more specifically, knives amnesty in the UK, encouraging the public to give up their weapons.
51 stabbings as a percentage of the overall population (What is it in the UK now? 58 Million?) is very little … you have to go to the 4th decimal place to get a figure 0.0001%, and still have to go to the 2nd decimal place if you multiplied that total by each day in the year, if the rate of stabbings continued as per over the weekend but in a single day ~ 0.03%Ok, I am far from naive when it comes to many of the shenanigans that occur in modern day life, and whilst not the most travelled person compared to some, I have visited and been out in enough of the UK's roughest and toughest cities and many of Europe's capital cities to be street wise enough to know what's going on, yet this whole carrying of knives thing seems to have rather crept up on me! I'll admit, I don't manage to watch the news as often as I should, because I am rarely home to catch it and by 10 o'clock, my housemate is usually monopolising the lounge and watching some other shite on television, but have I rarely had my head buried in the pillow on this one?!
When I was a lad …. See, that phrase just had to come! … I recall one stabbing during my lifetime at high school. That is 7-years of high-school education, as our 6th form college was also at our school, with only the one stabbing incident.
