    Surely they should cut them into circles? They don't have pointy corners so when thrown they won't get hurt

    You just cut the edge at a shallow angle and use them as blade-edge frisbees. [Like the thing Xena has... I dunno what it's called.]

    Slightly... but only because they're in Kingdoms of Amalur: Rekoning. [So I should actually know what they're called.]

    I like how triangles are bad as they have pointy corners but squares and rectangles are ok, hmm exactly how many corners does a square have?

    Will that lead to an acute shortage? Are they just being obtuse? Can we trust the press to get a new angle on this story every day this week? Stay tuned to find out...

    Next step will be to ban food & drink as it poses a "choking hazard"
