Unfortunately, that's true in just about everything. It's the very odd nature of human life and the structures we build, both physical and mental.

It might take a hundred years to build a magnificent cathedral in Germany, for instance, yet only one second for a bomb to reduce it to an ugly pile of rough rock.

It might take a lifetime for someone to build a belief about themselves that lets them do good things in the world - but only one wrong word from the wrong person to destroy their ideas, and their liklihood of of continuing to do good work. I saw this personally when I watched a doctor flush their career of nearly 40 years down the toilet because of the spiteful and calculated words of one person.

Hell, it's taken human life thousands of years to get to where we are now - and yet in an instant...

Yet here's where hope comes in. We DO manage to ALWAYS obtain things - "power" and technology and tools - long before we develop the wisdom to use them. But amazingly enough, we're still here, relatively thriving as a species.

We used to have the daily threat of nuclear holocaust - daily - in schools kids were taught to hide under their desks, as we all know that a schooldesk is the best defense against a thermonuclear warhead, right? ANd we had (and still have) thousands of these damn things floating around out there - a lot of them went to the highest bidder when the USSR collapsed. Yet - we're all still here. For how long? Who knows. But we survived the discovery that a rock can not only crack a nut, it can crack a skull. And we survived bows & arrows, gunpowder, and so far, the presence of nuclear weapons.

So I'm one for believing that, yes, every once in a while a moron comes along and - basically does a faceplant. And sometimes we all have to bear some effects from it. I can't get on a plane now with half the things I might have had with me once - all because some idiot tried to light his damn heel off. But I can still read a book on laser engineering while I'm on that flight. The day we outlaw knowledge is the day we really destroy ourselves as a species.

All we can do is try to look out for the morons, but we can't stop 'em all. Something about Natural Selection, and the Darwin Awards!

I'm going to keep on having fun designing laser stuff and combining it with my electronics hobby. Who knows - maybe I'LL invent something!
