Seems to me that Bill Shear (wasn't there a line on Sgt. Pepper's about
introducing the 'one and only Billy Shears??)....  ANYWAY, seems to me that
there is a scientifically valid reason for snapping instead of cutting, which
has to do with disturbing cell walls and therefore inviting rot.

So, cut if you will - but now you can feel guilty about it.
