How to remove bluetooth icon on [k]ubuntu?

This is a silly customization thing but it’s my desktop and I’ll do whatever I want. In Kubuntu (I guess is the same on ubuntu, don’t really know because unity is too complex to use for my mind) you have a bluetooth icon. I’ve never used bluetooth in my entire life (true story) so I want to remove it.

You can accomplish this easily disabling the device. Something like this:

$ sudo rfkill list bluetooth
1: sony-bluetooth: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no
$ sudo rfkill block 1

Obviously you must change the ‘1’ from the second command accordingly of the output from the first command. You could get bluetooth back executing rfkill unblock.
