gram slam

My friend Doug is the science columnist for the News Sentinel. He also has the local franchise for a business called Mad Science, which puts on educational shows at schools and entertains at kids' birthday parties. Of all the people I know, Doug is the one most likely to have a scale that could accurately weigh 20 grams of M&Ms. He let me borrow his scale, which looks just like the ones I remember from high school science class.

Today I asked my son to put one dark chocolate M&M at a time on Doug's scale. 22 weren't enough and 23 were too many. As the photos show, it takes 22 an a half M&Ms to equal 20 grams of chocolatey goodness. Anybody know where I can buy some half M&Ms?
