protein wisdom "Everybody knows that protein is one of the building blocks of life, and you will find no finer protein in the blogosphere than that produced at protein wisdom" -- Bill Quick, Daily Pundit

Along with 570 grams cocaine, police recovered 120 grams of ecstasy and 40 grams of marijuana. They also recovered two loaded rifles, a loaded handgun, $8,000 in cash and ski masks. Ten dogs were also removed from the home on Brack Street by Osceola County Animal Control.
Wow, 40 grams of maryjane. Let's see what that works out to in pounds. Hmm, better make that ounces.
This is a fantastic clip. As an Army Vet I've always talked of the Marines as I would my dumber, younger brother. But that's because they're family. And in spite of my little quips now and then I'm very proud of them. But anyone outside the family better either show some respect or shut their yammering gob (yes, that's directed at you Code Pinko).
UPDATE: David Codrea makes some good points about this test. Usually when I run into a test where none of the answers fit me I just give up and ignore it. God knows why I fought my way through this one. Especially when I got to the end and was wondering, "HUH?". So don't bother with this test. It's a waste of time an energy. And actually there's a weapon that probably fits me better. Once I find a good pic I'll post it here.
Alignment: Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order.

Race: Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.
Class: Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.
Police said two armed gunmen entered the Pizza Hut at about 10 p.m.
Joe says it well. My first thought was 'as opposed to the unarmed gunmen?'. Or maybe the gunmen actually didn't have arms. Might be a bit hard to draw a weapon. Or maybe this was like whatever that movie was and their legs were prosthetics with built in rifles.
I was going to post on this subject but LawDog, as usual, says it much better than I could. However, I figured that for comparison you can read my say on the subject before reading LawDogs's eloquence. So here's my say:
