This has to be a British anomaly. I carry a knife every waking second and other than the usual things in life, not only I am still alive and kicking but I have not been stabbed once my whole life! (Self inflicted cuts for stupid handling do not count)
So maybe it is some evil magical stuff happening in the country formerly know as Great Britain. Voldemort and his cronies probably cursed the isles and anybody with a knife will end up being stabbed and killed by another person with a knife who will eventually will be stabbed and killed….you know the rest.
Then again, it makes more sense that the “stats” show armed criminal element playing stupid games (engaged in criminal activity) who win the most stupid prize of ending in the slab of a morgue rather than assigning some idiotic properties to an inanimate object.
Hat Tip to Malroadkill who goes out of his wy to find me tweets that will give me a nose bleed.
