    Very hot baths, saunas etc. which raise body temperature create a kind of artificial fever and should therefore be beneficial.

    Oh, I think I do. Releasing criminals en masse is a classic way to create some havoc, it's been done over and over in history.

    Given that they were loaded from stripper clips anyway, you might wonder why they didn't go for 15 rounders instead: some advantage with less disadvantage?

    It would take quite a thumb to push the...
