“The real use of gunpowder is to make all men tall.” Thomas Carlyle.

An interesting juxtaposition of photos, I thought. Some small men struggling for stature think that blowing shit up is the way to solve their inferiority complexes. Some buy a red Ferrari if they can afford one. Others have to dress up like powerful warlords, beat women or demean someone. Ya can't always see it coming but the swagger generally gives it away.
