I know a skillful craftsman who builds boats out of posterboard, balsa and a couple coats of lacquer. These models are faithful representations of World War I era warships. A production company might use them for background minis in a military movie, they're that good. After a day's work to finish each, he's ready to display them at a backyard cookout.
Minutes later, the same family and friends who were admiring their craftsmanship commence tossing explosives toward these defenseless boats (whilst simultaneously tossing back alcoholic beverages).
In the end, tiny cardboard hulls take on water, beer bottles soothe burns and a good-time vibe settles over the onlookers. Another year avoiding major injuries perpetuates this game of chance.
