How stoning works in Iran

"Stones must be of medium size, according to the penal code: Not so big that one or two could kill the person, but not so small that you would call it a pebble. In other words, about the size of a tangerine. The whole process takes less than an hour."—Slate, god bless 'em, explains stoning. Bonus points for a more grisly use of the word "stoner."
