Obviously, the dead and maimed get a significant mindshare, but forcing you to question your lifestyle choices for fear of being one of the aforementioned victims... that's real purpose of terrorism, even if it was by an accidental purchase of a pink knife because they didn't think to bring a lot of cash.

    Also, I'm moving this to YMAS, it is better suited, there.
    I think all the knives were pink (2-3?). There were no other colors purchased...I know it's speculative...I just wonder if there was a message there.

    These Ernesto ceramics come in a huge range of colors both regular and pastel. If you're a terrorist in London...all that pink being waved around the UK and world in solidarity the previous week might piss you off enough to make a gruesome choice of color.

      I think that's a good bet.

        Yeah, it's entirely possible. I mean, you are standing there in a store picking a knife to stab a bunch of folks with and don't know how to make the choice. Then you think, well shit, I'm about tired of all the damn pink everywhere around here. I'll use a pink one just to spite them. I could see that.
