I'm sure your right but what if he means from call of duty, i know its called the 'Stun' grenade but its essentially the same thing as it distorts and slows you and a frag is self explanatory.

SirThorfinn 12-15-2010 03:44 PM

What is a lodestone?- a naturally magnetized piece of the mineral magnetite.

If you were to light a match in an airtight room filled entirely with methane, what would happen? - i'm guessing nothing as fire needs oxygen to burn and its pure methane which is CH[SIZE="1"]4[/SIZE] and contains no Oxygen.

What basketball team does LeBron James play for? - I believe Cleveland Cavaliers

Which phase comes first in mitosis, anaphase or telophase? technically Interphase comes first but of the 2 anaphase comes before telophase.:D

What is James Bond's weapon of choice? At first i thought "The Golden Gun" but i had to look that up, it says most people think the PPK handgun is his choice.

What does the phrase QED stand for? quod erat demonstrandum (looked it up) meaning (that which was to be demonstrated)

Thats all i got.
