"Well, most pagans, especially the Northern variety didn't write much of anything down either... It wasn't until the 12th century (or 1200s can never remember which) that Snorri Sturlusson started writing down the old Norse myths, legends,…"
"1. I agree. However, for something like this to happen would basically require the "easier" states to add additional requirements to their conceal carry programs, which many will not like.

"At the most, I'll eat something like a Banana, or a Kiwi.... Something small enough that in no way will I feel "full" but at the same time, it's enough that I'm not lifting on a completely empty stomach. Then after I lift,…"
