    Thank God that cop used some discretion, especially since the weapon turned out to be a BB gun. Huge tragedy narrowly avoided.

    Now that you mention it, I have noticed a spike in cannibalistic violence lately. You might be on to something, here.

    Pilot Mound is the smallest town I've ever seen with signs that say "Pilot Mound Next 5 Exits."

    There is another one like that in Iowa just east of I35. Can't think of it but I've seen it on RAGBRAI.

    Mineola in SW Iowa has a sign that says next 3 exits, its a very tiny town surrounded by several new housing developments due to its proximity to the Omaha metro area.

    did you really just ask that dumb of question? if someone had a gun do you think you would pull out a gun or a taser? using a taser would be like bringing a knife to a gun fight. in the heat of the moment you dont know if its just a BB gun or something else.
