Sorry for asking so late but sometimes, I do not really understand surprising statistics like this one:

View attachment 1015959

Does this really mean that every average US-citizen - no matter if baby, teenager or grown-up (?) - has 2.7 firearms at his disposal?

When I remember my birthdays when I was still a teenager, our German celebrations would have been terribly dangerous with my 5 friends and their 13.5 possible firearms instead of their 5 water pistols ...
:eek::rolleyes:
no it is "90 guns per 100 people"
or 270 million guns for 300 million people (which would be the population of the USA in 2007 or so.)

Of course that doesn't mean that 90% of Americans own a gun ... the percentage of people who own guns is surely less, but among those who do own them, there are those who own several, or large numbers. Like a guy might own a hunting rifle, a shotgun, some handguns, and this and that.

What is actually surprising is Germany being listed with 30 guns per 100 people.

Most of this is down to West German law being changed in the 1970s, (introduction of federal regulation), before that firearms regulation was local and there were a lot of guns in circulation, and it is basically conjecture how many of them are left 50 years later. The number of registered firearms is far lower (less than 7 per 100) and all of the rest is conjecture about pre-1970s guns still existing and being operable. And of course it's the same in Germany ... a small group of people owns more than one firearm and that inflates the numbers.

Actually I mistrust statics of any kind without proper context.

Praefectus Praetorio

Brother of the Quill
1623536687897.png
Once upon a time, there lived a King who had the most beautiful daughter. But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt. No matter what: Metal, Wood, Stone anything she touched would melt.

Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her. The King despaired. What could he do to help his daughter? He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the King, 'If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured.'

The King was overjoyed and came up with a plan. The next day, he held a competition. Any man that could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the King's wealth. THREE YOUNG PRINCES TOOK UP THE CHALLENGE

The first brought a sword of the finest steel. But alas, when the Princess touched it, it melted. The prince went away sadly.

The second prince brought diamonds. He thought diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt But alas, once the Princess touched them, they melted. He too was sent away disappointed.

The third prince approached. He told the Princess, 'Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there.' The Princess did as she was told, though she turned red. She felt something very hard. She held it in her hand.

And it did not melt!!!

The King was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed. And the Prince married the Princess and they both lived happily ever after.

Question: What was in the Prince's pants????

M&M's of course! They melt in your mouth, not in your hand.

What else on earth were you thinking?

I DO WORRY ABOUT YOU AT TIMES!

So, if I understand, all these jokes about 'swallowing' on CF, are about M&M's?:roto2palm:

Glad someone explained me at last!:doh:
There is an urban legend that the marketing manager who came up with the slogan for M&Ms was slightly modifying an inside joke between him and his girlfriend. "Come on, babe, you know what to do. It'll melt in your mouth, never in your hand!"
Right, @Apostate ?
