My keyboard. My keyboard hasn't made a human kill. Maybe some keyboard has, but not mine, yet.

Nor has my mouse, or my speakers, my mousepad, my computer, etc.

But in orbit, in space, doing EVAs and one of these nice straw hats collide with you at several kilometers per second. It could be deadly

Hi there,

I have been thinking
.... Please correct me if I am wrong? My list so far:

Braille –
Hearing aids –
The emergency stop button –
The quite room ‘padded cell’ –
Hand healers –
Audio story books or worse Mills & Boon novels –
Black box flight recorders -
Flying goggles & helmet -
Mr Ozzy-Bin-Linner -
The health & safety @ work notice -
Pubic hair -
Rizla 'fag papers' -
Poppy 'rememberance Sunday' -

Last but not least 'ME' (subject to change @ short notice).

There ain't a whole lot of things that humans HAVEN'T made that haven't killed. Stars kill; the sun kills people in a number of ways. Water, dirt, sand, rock, hundreds of kinds of animals and plants, etc.

Black holes haven't killed anyone, but that's just because they're all too far away for that to happen. Asteroids have killed people, I'm fairly certain, as have volcanoes, lightning, rain, and fire.

Nebulae are too far away, and wouldn't kill a person in a space suit, but that's sort of cheating. It's like saying swords aren't deadly, provided you're dressed in full plate all the time.

Aerogel hasn't killed anyone, to my knowledge.

Abstract thoughts, intangibles, for one.
Specific or unique items, like 'this table'
Works of imagination, you can argue someone read it and killed themself over it but you can argue the thought itself didnt...

Also I cant imagine any bunny killing someone

Woah...paper cuts can kill

I am going to say, a very small bolt has never killed anyone.

Nor the thousands of nuclear warheads we currently have worldwide, which were actually made to kill people

And um... my email address, that has never killed a sole....I hope

I bet someone's gotten a papercut from something like that, which then got infected at some point in history, just to spite your post.

Okay, maybe somebody killed somebody with one of those hard baguettes at some point. But I'm sure it was an accident.

Darwin theroy is alive and well, so I'm sure everything has killed someone at some point.

But I'm sure the letter "G" on all computers and type writers have not killed anyone.

YOu rule, lol by the way we have no diffinitive evidence that nibiru hasn't killed before, but yes it was a theory and or idea created by man unless the story is true in wich case we shall find out in three years if you were Hey Alex Jones was created by man and he hasn't killed, he also has been about as factual, and right about as often as the nibiru theory has.

I assume human reproduction can be counted as an act of "making something," so our offspring may be counted as products of human handiwork, yes?

So, I'd say that Stephen Hawking's parents created something that is incapable of killing. He's about as close to a human oyster as he can get.

someone HAS to have choked on a thimble or monopoly piece at some point.

Although I agree that the second line probably hasn't.

I know. Straw hats.

In August of 1903, in Piermont's Rim, New York, strong winds carried away the straw hat of a Mr. Thomas Edisto, who was downtown on that day purchasing feed for his livestock.

The straw hat was carried down Main Street on gusts estimated at 40 mph. Three pedestrians were killed instantly, and eight others suffered severe lacerations from the errant straw hat.

A sad, sad day in the otherwise unblemished history of straw hats.

Edisto was tried and convicted of involuntary manslaughter and was made to serve 4 years in prison.
