Two terrible things may result.

One, the bullets stored on their sides will place too much pressure on one side of the barrel and cause the bullet to miss on the opposite barrel side of the target. (Please see illustration below.)

If you have ammo stored on its side now, a quick fix for aiming is to use what's called, "Kentucky Windage." NOTE: This is not legal in all States, so before utilizing such a drastic measure as Kentucky Windage, you must be a permanent resident in the State where it is legal to be used. (Although probably not necessary to mention, I'll add that native residents of Kentucky are wholly exempt from any and ALL federal statutes concerning this stratagem. Please see US Federal Court vs. D. Boone, 1815 A.D..)

OTOH, a common loop hole most shooters use and you may want to try, if you're not a resident in a State where using the infamous Kentucky Windage is legal, is to simply move the rear sight on your firearm to compensate for the pressure differences during the round's travel inside the barrel. Just be sure to move the rear sight towards the same side as the powder has collected inside the bullet.)

Two, too much surface area of the powered will receive detonation from the primer all at once and the entire gun will blow to pieces along with your hand. NOTE: If this happens, it won't matter what side the rear sight is moved to as the round will probably not make it to the target.

To safely store ammunition, one must first understand that the powder in all bullets is specifically measured and placed in the case in such a way as to allow the proper burning of it by always starting this burn from the rear, or back, of the bullet.

The toilet seat was invented in1500. It wasn't until the 1800's that someone decided to cut a hole in it.

Felix Gunderson, a falsely maligned American Patriot and lover of M&Ms, was today finally honored for his tireless work in actually penning the first ever lyrics to the most well known bugle arrangement of all time. Mr. Gunderson today received a presidential citation for his decade long work with Reveille.

ozzy ozborne, the ever so modest front man for the band, black-sabbath, said today that had it not been for b-s' opening acts, such as stars like van halen, or van hagar, and bands like Abba or The Bee Gees to mention a couple, ozzy stated unequivocally that black sabbath would not have realized the billion upon billions of records sales it did around the world.

Poland suffered the worst air disaster in it's history early this morning, when a small 2 seat Cessna aircraft crashed into a cemetery just outside Warsaw. 184 bodies have already been recovered, and that number is expected to increase as digging continues into the afternoon.

The world's last known, manbearpig, died in captivity today after being attacked by the vicious, cowcalfllama. The caretaker mistakenly allowed the cowcalfllama too close to the manbearpig. Although no one suspected this predatory behavior towards manbearpigs, most folks realize that cowcalfllamas are pretty benign and benevolent when it comes to being in close proximity to people and especially children.

A zoo spokesman said while too early to state what exactly happened, the zoo had already begun retraining maintenance workers on the importance of correctly hanging signs above the animals' stalls and cages.

On February 29th, 2015, the people paying for the retirement of everyone else officially ran out of money.

Retired folk demand that the gubmint print more money, pay the workers so the workers can pay them.

The Cowcalfllama was later eaten by another creature, the Crocadatscund. The result of years of experiments in plastic surgery, the Crocadatscund - named Sammy - is most famous for defeating the vicious hybrid Siberian Wolf in the first International Dogfighting Championships, held in Moscow. Championship dog fighter and veteran of both the NFL and US Penal system Michael Vick said "That dog (the Crocadatscund) was vicious. I don't know where they found that thing or what they did to it but, after seeing it fight I got out of dogfighting completely. I just couldn't put one of my beloved dogs in the pit with that, knowing they had no chance of winning or even surviving the fight."

The Crocadatscund is not expected to be punished. As one of it's trainers (no one is sure of it's gender as everyone is afraid to check) that's just "Sammy being Sammy."

(Excerpt from Wikipedia)

"Richard swinging contests",

initially rather harmlessly shortened to "Dick swinging contests",

were all the rage in the south in the 20's. It all started in the summer of 1919 in New Orleans as Richard Douglas (10, at the time) and his friend Richard Smith (8, at the time), made a match out of who could propel himself the highest on the old wooden swing on the front lawn.

This little match, watched on by neighbors, quickly caught on and became a rage throughout the suburbs, quickly spreading throughout the entire south in the early 20s, for a brief moment displacing cow tipping as the pastime of choice.

With its huge popularity, Dick swinging contests were soon regulated under the now defunct SDSCA, the Southern Dick Swinging Contests Association.

By 1924, the entire sport of Dick swinging sadly fell into disrepute with accusation of widespread steroid abuse, resulting in a Congressional Hearing in August of the same year and the disbanding of the SDSCA, and all it's activities, by November of 1924.

To add insult to injury, the term "dick swinging" later became associated with the practice of males measuring their genitals as a way of asserting their manliness.

The term's negative connotation was only further cemented with an on-stage phenomenon termed "The Helicopter" as popularized by the punk/rock band The Red Hot Chilly Peppers in the mid 80s (graphic reference, discription and photograph removed by Wikipedia).

On his deathbed in September of 2009, Richard Douglas was reportedly overheard to say, "if only we weren't both called Richard, this crap would have never turned out the way it did..."

The owner of the only undefeated animal in world dog fighting history, Crocadatscund, said services for his beloved champion will be closed to immediate family members, trainers, and those betting whales, orcas, and dolphins that came to be known as Crocadatscund's Memphis Mafia.

Investigators into this tragedy advises that no one may ever know how a diamondmouthed, cottonbacked rattlemoccasin snake gained entrance into Crocadatscund's sleeping area, but the bite from this deadly serpent was too much for him and he quickly succumb to the poison's effect.

Another Thesaurus fossil has been found in Pensacola, Florida.

Mr. Darrel Roget Johnson, the leader of the recovery expedition, advises that the remains of the fossil, a Thesauria according to experts at the dig site, will take at least 15 years to recover.

They could actually get it out in two weeks, but since it is a government project, they have decided it will take over a decade to free the discovered bones.

There were also incidents where Lone_Wolfe insisted on being called lobo solitario and when asked to commence the experiment, growled, "No mas!"

For their work, Gunderson and his team were allowed to keep the M&Ms that weren't red.

Science is hard.
Only 37 M&M's??? The hell with that!

A recent study shows a direct link between squeezin the Charmin and Rutabega tea.

77 Accountants were given Rutabega tea 27 times a day over the course of 3.8 months. The accountants were then asked to work their hands with hand grips to check for grip strength.

The accountants quickly destroyed the hand grips with excessive hand-wringing. In an attempt to calm down the remaining 66 subjects each was given a roll of Charmin to squeeze 44 to 68 times per day.

While no direct correlation was seen, there was casual observation that the accountants squeezed the neck of their captors...err technicians 17 less times a day.

Further observation indicated that the mortality rate of the technicians was reduced by half after squeezin the Charmin ensued. (However results are inconclusive because the size of the technician sample was reduced by 87%)

Further studies are needed and a new grant proposal is being written by the remainders of the team.

The state department announced that Rupert T. Beckendish III, a horologist, outspoken nudist, and former streaker from the 70's, has left America today for the country of Iran.

Mr. Beckendish advised the state department, when applying for a visa, that he is accepting Iran's invitation in order to assist them with their atomic clock program; however, recent revelations of the growing popularity of people streaking in Iran is thought to be the real reason for Mr. Beckendish's travel to the country.

A TSA staff member, who spoke on condition of anonymity, advised that while going through Mr. Beckendish's luggage at the airport, he found but one suit along with two, latex Richard Nixon masks and 12 pairs of tennis shoes. Notably, 6 pair of the tennis shoes were sized 13EEE, which just happens to be the exact size of mahmoud ahmadinejad's feet.

When reached for comment, mahmoud ahmadinejad, instead of commenting, simply kept smiling as the reporter had forgotten to bring along a translator.

In an effort to solve all of the concerns about the Generation 4 Glocks, Gaston Glock assigned several employees to research the problem. They proceeded by taking a NIB Glock and stuck it in the mud by a pond for a week. When the gun was retrieved it fired without any flaws.

They then took the gun and tied it to the rear bumper of a truck and drove for 20 miles. At the end of the trip, they racked the slide and the gun fired flawlessly.

The next step was to take the gun onto a helicopter and dropped it from a thousand feet. Once again, the gun fired without fault.

Finally out of frustration, they field stripped the gun and replaced all of the OEM parts with aftermarket parts. The results were FTF, FTE, FTRB, and the dreaded "Brass to the head." After a piece of brass fell behind a testers glasses and burned his cheek, he was last seen heading for the furnace mumbling something about a pig nose.

In an effort to satisfy disgruntled customers, Glock will began importing the G25, G28 and a 13 round G36 starting January, 2013. This information can be seen on Glocks newly updated web site.
