Binder full of weasel

Wow. That binder kerfuffle. That’s just all different kinds of stupid, huh?

By the way, go to do a Google search of “binder” and “binder full of women” is already the first suggestion.

Never mind about that. Y’all need to get yourselves a new hobby chop chop.

Just when I finally accepted the fact that democrats are somehow able to rewrite history every four years I now find out they are able to rewrite history in just over four weeks!

Oh, Mitchell, I have a metal detector. One of the first things I did was detect the yard (our house is 400+ years old). Never found anything but rusty nails and old garden tools.

Uncle B’s little brother found a small hoard of Roman coins once, though.

Binder trivia: in the UK, there are no three-ring binders. There are two-ring binders and four-ring binders.

Weasel trivia: this is actually pretty upsetting to me. I have a whole ecosystem of three-ring paraphernalia, including the Museum of Hole Punches.

Weasel gif! Yaaaay!

Why on earth would the coroner decide what is or isn’t treasure?

It’s the only way to be dead certain.

Its just a measure of how pathetic and floundering the Obama effort is that they are even trying this idiot trial balloon.

Around (not on) old battle sites good for coins. People bury their cash and then get killed or whatever.

Most of the Arabian Gulf (the old British Trucial Coast) uses those damned Brit binders. The two-ring ones are an abomination.

“Treasure” has a very particular meaning here, Pups. If something is defined as treasure, you have to offer it to the government first — but if they want it, they have to give you fair market value for it.

It’s a good system. This, along with the Portable Antiquities Scheme, has meant treasure hunters for the most part work with the government and archeologists. No poachers.

So if you found King Charles’ lost crown jewels, you’d have to offer it to the crown again? Bummer.

Yeah, but they have to offer you what it’s really worth, not fob you off with a token sum. And sometimes, they decide they don’t want treasure that much.

The usual deal is, you get the permission of the landowner (usually a farmer) to metal detect first, and if you get anything good, you split it with him.

It means there’s not a lot of skullduggery and lost artifacts. Things mostly go through the system, where they are verified and learned from.

Loved the ani-gif, Weasie.

Last ones I recall you doing were the 😯 and 😮 magic finger massage.

Oh, and since nobody 😯 a dirty weasel gif, yes, you do need to clean up the residual box artifacts you left on the binder when the ‘lil weasel he goes pop.

You do realize this is only the first in a series, don’t you? Evidently Keith Ellison Gave Obama Binder Full Of “Qualified” Muslims To Consider Hiring…
You could replace the lil wease’ with a lil OBL and put an appropriate cover on the binder. Heh.

What if you just happened to find something on someone’s land and didn’t seek permission first? Does that negate your claim to half?

I remember when that Roman helmet was found and they didn’t have enough to buy it. It was then auctioned, and they tried again to buy it but a private collector out bid them. I see now that they are displaying it which is great. Too much disappears into the hands of private collectors never to be seen again. [Rothko’s white center – sob!] Can’t blame them. Who needs to get robbed?

Anyway, I agree with mojo: devise a plan where you are most likely to find treasure and have at it. You could probably bring the chickens. Do chickens like changes of scenery? Car rides?

OK, I get that governmental intervention is involved, I guess I was taken by surprise that its a job for the coroner.

This should make Uncle B’s blood pressure rise: The douchebags over at Counterpunch are defending Pol Pot.
