Math is Racist. 

Students no longer need any math skills to go to Graduate school. 

2+2 = 4, or 22, or what ever you feel is correct. 

There are no wrong answers, feel free to express your feelings e.g., anger, anxiety, inadequacy, helplessness etc. 

Should you require debriefing at the conclusion of the exam there are Counselors available to assist you to adjust back into the real world

      Longtime resident Lady Liberty, age 236 was struck by a stolen Chevy Volt last night along the interstate. The driver and passengers, illegally in the US from their native countries across the world, then dragged Ms. Liberty into the woods and brutally sodomized her before heading to the local polling place where they registered using the names of Supreme Court justices and voted without being challenged by UN poll watchers.
      Authorities found them around the corner, each with a large supply of newly legalized recreational marijuana, getting high. They were taken into custody and released a short time later with a kiss on each cheek and a prepaid gift card for WaWa to handle the munchies.
      Ms. Liberty is in extremely critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit, and doctors are very wary of her chances of recovery. A crowd of zombie-like citizens are already gathered at the Liberty residence, preparing to loot it of valuables when she succumbs to her injuries or the Death Panel declares her worthless and pulls the plug.

    • I'm having a tough time concealing my hk without printing. Is printing illegal or just frowned upon? It's not egregious, I just know the gun is there so I can pick up in it while looking in the mirror. 
    • WTS SIG P320 Compact Slide & Romeo 1 Red Dot 3 MOA . I’ve got a P320 compact slide(Just the slide, no barrel or spring included) for sale $200. Not even 100 rounds through it. Gonna upgrade to an optic cut slide. Also have Romeo 1 3 MOA sight for sale $225. Has all the original paperwork and box. Available for meetup in Union NJ area. Can also meet at RTSP in Union. Or I can ship it you. 
    • True, but my 1.5moa general experience is extreme spread on a 5 shot group.  I think the main thing is that plinking ammo gets a bad rep because it's cheap and those who tend to buy it are  1) cheap and shooting it out of a cheap gun.  2) shooting volume rather than accuracy, and may not have skills for shooting accurately.  3) dealing with the reputation of the past.  4) The first place QC slips when we have mass buying panics that strain the market.  Modern manufacturing makes it much easier to automate consistency and QC. I mean jsut look at bolt action rifles. They are pretty much ALL sub moa guns  even at $400.   
    • I've been reading articles predicting a food shortage within 18 months for the last six months. It may be closer than that. Those of you thinking of laying in extra food supplies may want to read this.

    • Remember average mean radius is NOT the same as extreme spread. When I hear “1 moa ammo” I think extreme spread (that’s how I measure my own groups) but the Army likes AMR because it’s still indicative of the accuracy but a flyer or two doesn’t torpedo the whole lot
