You probably think that's an absurd notion that nobody would ever enact,
and mean to show how absurd it is to outlaw `host -l` by drawing an
analogy with outlawing knives. Such an argument is dependent upon the
assumption that the guy listening to you thinks it's absurd to outlaw
Before making that assumption, however, you should have a look at laws
regarding knives in Scotland.
There's no end to the absurdity of law.
