Just to show that Heidegger isn’t the only notable intellectual whose life is curiously connected to weapons, mediate on the picture at tveskov.com of a “statue of Henrik Ibsen, half owl, half ballistic missile.” (Scroll halfway down the page.)

Tveskov appears to be a fellow futurist, though he got to work for Lego’s futures group. (Lego, incidentally, is deep into futures stuff: they’ve been a big MIT Media Lab supporter, among other things.)
