Shooting RiddleA gun's striker hits the round and thus adds energy. But it also releases energy by removing something from the round. What is it?
Higher StandardsNurse: "This soldier lost his head in the last battle."Doc: "I treat everybody, including deserters, cowards etc. We all are afraid sometimes or can freak out."Nurse: "No, I mean literally. He's got no head anymore. Gone."Doc: "Democrat or Republican?"Nurse: "Now what does that have to do with anything?!"Doc: "If he's a Republican, we'll just close the wound and it'll be fine. If he's a Democrat, we'll have to mold a rubber head. Democrats are smart; his peers would notice the difference."
Warrior of TruthI am a warrior of truth.Some perceive me as trying to appear better than them.They find the truth insulting.That makes me better than them.I am not insulted by their lowliness.Not pleased either, though.People can wield or shield.Their shield dons their crest and covers the truth.I don't shield my truth. I carry it in my sword.I have no crest. I don't need a shield.My parries can shatter inferior blades and repel weak-spirited blows.I mostly just do demos, but some are compelled to attack me.I am exposed, seemingly vulnerable.They cannot resist the temptation.They lower their shield and strike.That's when they reveal the truth.My armor is thick. Their cheap blade cannot hurt me.They unleash all their fury.All their truth.They just drop their shield altogether to more freely swing their edge of dullness.Now I am pleased.
