That's kind of dangerous because while I think "{}" is not usually used very
often in shell commands (except for find), once you start putting stuff in
between them, it's less obvious.

In New York, most people don't have cars, so if you want to kill a person, you
have to take the subway to their house.  And sometimes on the way, the train
is delayed and you get impatient, so you have to kill someone on the subway.
