    Big boys need bigger toys.

    This is also why Christopher’s mother disallows toys that promote violence.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    I have always wondered what it is that makes boys and men want to run around shooting each other, when a really good, moderated argument would resolve almost anything. My thinking is: If women ruled the world, we’d get the politics over with expediently, thereby saving the civilian population, then do our best to rejuvenate each other’s economies by shopping! This said by someone who admits to having been a street fighter at the age of five!

    re: night gaunt

    Unfortunately, while Lynn is very good with the family dynamic much of the time, all one has to do is look at the Federal government, with 70% female and most agencies and field offices run by women to see what would result from what she suggested. Between the modern lack of professionalism and the lack of work ethic today in Federal service, quite frankly, I’d be embarassed. It didn’t used to be that way. Even ten years ago people quit the feds to start their own businesses and were usually surprised that it was less work. Today? Ha!

    I don’t know who Lynn has worked with in the past, but I once had the opportunity to work in an all-female office and ran screaming from the interview. I don’t know why people assume that women would make for such a perfect world. Plus far too women decide with their heart rather than logic (and I am sometimes guilty of that as well), and don’t realize all the repercussions of some decisions. Not saying men are perfect, either—just that neither gender is.

    No, war is not fun, Killing is not always the answer. BUT…I think Lynn has hit the nail on the head here. The boys are outside playing instead of sitting on the couch rotting their brains! As kids, we played war games too and in it most subliminal manner, it honed our social skills, taught us to work together, improved our tactical skills not only for fighting and playing , but for daily observations needed to get through life! Kudos Lynn!

    War must be fun. Otherwise why would everyone use any excuse or no excuse to get to the fighting?
    In case anyone is wondering I do not approve of war. I think it is a stupid way to settle differences. Why has no one come up with a better way in all the millenia that humans have been on this planet?
    Ok, I’ll get off the soap box now.

    @Michael King:… Killing is not always the answer.
    So how often is it? 1%? 5%? 25%? 50%? 80%?

    Boys are wired for aggressive behavior. It’s one reason the species survives. Yep, it can be bad if not controlled. But if attempts are made to eliminate it, the aggression simply comes out in other unpleasant ways. And if it is ever bred out of the species we are doomed. For societies/civilizations collapse and it is the aggressiveness that allows survival Much easier for all when it’s properly channeled…

    If there were o toy guns, boys and girls would use sticks as guns. Man has used weapons of one kind or another since time began.
