Which is worse: that when I saw the Slate.com headline “Great Scenes of People Getting Stoned by Accident in the Movies” I thought it was about people having rocks accidentally thrown at them until they died or that when I realized after I started to read that it was about people getting high I was really, really disappointed?

I don’t know if you can be stoned with rocks by accident, to be honest.
Actually, you walk around a stoning, listening to your iPod, daydreaming, and all of a sudden you find yourself between the criminal and the crowd.

Well, that explains why most of the Biblical mentions of stoning say some form of “ye shall stone them with stones.” You can imagine how pissed off Yahweh would have been if there’d been a loophole and someone had punished adultery with some really good weed.
