So they want to go back to roman numerals? :fp:

bunchamorons, Roman numerals are not compatible with modern maths. Arab/Indian numerals and the positional system to give powers of 10 are so convenient and practical that going back on that is preternaturally stupid, and I say that as a guy who is permananently shut off any serious mathematics.

I have a book called "The Book of Nothing" by John Barrow, which is all about the history, philosophy and mathematics associated with the concept of zero. Quite fascinating - I must read it again...

Shockingly, this did not happen in Florida.

What I want to know is why did this guy have the weed in his ass and the meth in his car, when weed is legal in WA, and meth isn't... :think:
WASHINGTON (Fox 32 News) - A man who shot himself in the testicles was also found to be hiding marijuana in his buttocks, according to a report.

Cameron Jeffrey Wilson, 27, was carrying a gun in his front pocket on April 5 in Washington state when the firearm accidentally discharged, the Wenatchee World News reports. The bullet pierced Wilson's testicles and then went into his thigh.

Upon arriving at the hospital, a doctor was operating on the gunshot wound when a balloon of marijuana slipped out of Wilson’s anus, court records show, according to the report.

Police arrived at the hospital and searched Wilson’s car where they also found a bag of meth, the report said.

The man’s troubles did not end there, though.

As Wilson -- who is a convicted felon -- was being processed into the Chelan County Jail, he was strip-searched and another balloon of marijuana came out of his anus, according to the Wenatchee World News.

Wilson has pleaded not guilty to second-degree felon in possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of meth. He also pleaded not guilty to posession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility.

Wilson is being held on $110,000 bond and due in court on June 18.

This story was reported from Chicago.

Editor's Note: This story initially reported the man accidentally shot himself in the penis. He actually accidentally shot himself in the testicles.
