I wish I had a dollar for every time I had a gun stuck in my ribs in the back room of an Albertson's.

The investigation found absolutely nothing strange, except that the 2012 Roswell meat gun inexplicably was composed of 79.5% Tantalum 180m, the rarest isotope in the universe, and contained 7400 times the amount of the metal estimated to be in the entire earth's crust.

Sgt. Preston in Roswell, NM? I now have an image in my mind of a Canadian Mountie dissecting an alien corpse.

Seriously?!?!?! If I open up a pack of meat and find a nice pistol, not to mention ammo to go with it (altho I might just trash the ammo and get new), I'm thinking Merry F'n Xmas to ME!!! I bought it, got a prize like it was Cracker Jacks!!!

Yeah, the gun thing was by far the least interesting part of this story. With as many guns as we have here in the US one was bound to show up in a pack of ribs eventually.

It was the June 8, 2011 thing that screwed with my head. I always assume my ribs were from cows butchered at least within the last 6 months, not over 18 months ago. Now I am wondering whether the ground beef in my freezer is Obama beef or Bush beef. This is seriously farking with my head.

BINGO! thank God almighty there is one common sense person left in the world. i die a little inside every farking time i read of some dooshbag who finds and returns a big ol bale of reefer, a ton o coke or two duffle bags of loose $20's that just fell out the back of a Brinks money truck. sure sure honesty is the best policy. and sometimes it's finders keepers just say thank you and keep yer farking mouth shut!

/thank you for restoring my faith in mankind

Livingroom: AirGee: Livingroom: obviously, you're an idiot. .38 super is "9mm largo" a semi-automatic round originally used in the MP5, before they went all 9mm-luger. a .38 super is a 1911 clone.

Really? Is it that obvious that he is an idiot? I'm pretty sure all of those comments you're getting all high and mighty about are jokes, but thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Two things: welcome to fark, and

I'm so tired of seeing the ignorant things that people say about guns, so I've decided to start correcting people. If you're too lazy/stupid/whatever to google the caliber just to double check...then you're an idiot. It's not like I went off screaming and bashing him. I just states the obvious. To anyone with knowledge of guns, he is an obvious idiot.

fusillade762: Not to mention sucking all the nitrous out of the whipped cream cans. Wait, sorry, that was the walk-in cooler, not the freezer.

/also worked grocery for a few years

Ah yes, whippets. Oh the headaches they caused.

Gyrfalcon: Sometimes I wish CSI and NCIS were not allowed to be on TV.

I share her sentiment.

But seriously thanks for that. I remember going in for a job and they put my info in and up popped an arrest from 7 years prior just like that. It just seems a bit odd. Heck, when I applied for my Hazmat certification my background stuff came back and was approved in about a week.

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico authorities say they're puzzled by what turned up in a package of meat at a Roswell grocery store.

OK, so what are the chances the gun ISN'T FROM THIS PLANET?!??!?

i'm going with the date being a typo or if not then someone stashed that case knowing the gun and ammo were in it. one of you can hypothesis how it got to the store.

HBK: Stockboy trying to sell a gun to a coworker and stashes it as his manager walks into the freezer?

When I worked at a grocery store, a lot of shady stuff happened in the freezers. Mostly drinking inventory and smoking weed.

I live in WA. Smoking weed in the grocery story freezer is no longer shady here. How weird is that?

Yet another think farking with my head.
