Re: Selling chinese fossils



Dear Michael and List,

    You haven't. Smuggling valuable fossils and other artifacts out of China
has become a lucretive business for the thieving scum of the world. The only
down size is that if caught, there is a very good chance that The Chinese
government will execute you. This is is an almost certainty if you are a
Chinese citizen.
    Unfortunately for famous masterpieces, endangered animals, archeological
artifacts, priceless fossils, and humanity in general, there are enough
wealthy idiots out there that will pay outrageously, for the above listed
swag. And enough poor third world folks willing to take all the risks for
them.

Really hates %#!! smugglers, especially pouchers, Cliff
