Weaponised

Daily Prompt Source
World’s Best Widget:  You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine. What do you build?

I have no idea what single gadget or machine I would build.  Maybe one that cured world hunger or that vanishes every weapon in the world.  Actually I like that second one because its implementation could prove interesting.

Any object that could be used as a weapon disappears.  So depending on the definition of weapon, this could include a large number of things.   If a weapon is defined as something that causes harm.  This could include utensils, vehicles, or even television programmes.  Poof, all gone.

Even words could disappear because as Sara Bareilles sings:

“You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug” (Brave)

Pretty much anything can be deemed a weapon and therefore disappear with this machine.

As humans can we even create something that does not have the potential to be a weapon?

Author:

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
