    Inspired by madmike's article Killer.

    Very nice, but I'd reverse the text, even though it brings the important message to the bottom.

    Put a Machete in the guy's hand.
  4. Would you grant permission to resize and use that image as a signature picture on other forums?

    Actually, warfare requires neither of those things. All it requires is a little organization.

    Ants make war. They have neither.

    I agree that the machete would be good as well.

    Ants have opposable mandibles. :)

    carterbeauford, yes, you may use the picture.

    The poster is not precise but it does seem to generate good discussions of how little warfare truly requires.

    Just put someone's throat in his hand. Hominids waged war before they had weapons.

    Or a box cutter.

    What is the hand gripping? PVC pipe or something? I suggest a stick or something obviously wooden. The texture would help get across what the hand is holding.
    A large man's hand on a woman's throat might make another good one.

    1) Bogie the designer/typesetter hates all caps...

    2) I like the machette idea, with a black hand, maybe something identifiable as African included...

    I will re-shoot the photo with a stick in hand.
