    Some bronze Roman coins are quite common, while others can be rarities, depending upon their condition and what is depicted upon them. The video showed coins in clumps, as if they had been buried in containers. some in the middle of the clump may be in better condition than those on the outer edge. If they had been buried in pots, as frequently happens, the container, or shards of it, would remain. These look like they were in bags or baskets, which have completely rotted away. In most European countries, ancient coins are now considered to be national treasure, and cannot be exported. Nevertheless, a finder who reports a hoard to the authorities will get either a portion to keep, or a monetary reward. Look up “treasure trove” for more information.

    Old Vlad certainly knew how to conduct a stakeout.

    Don’t you mean the Current Occupant, Musclehead?

    Many atheists hate it when you point out that their faith in no God is actually a religion.

    For some reason, reading this thread, and considering the story, I am reminded of the film “12 Monkeys.” Anyone else getting that vibe?

    It’s possible, catty. Anybody can tweet anything for an agenda or a prank.

    “Zeke” was the name given to the Big Bad Wolf in Walt Disney’s animated version of “The Three Little Pigs.”

    She was a beat cop for a number of years, according to Wikipedia.

    Better to use it for the new undocumented “Yoots.”

    Many years ago, I worked in a State government office that dealt with this very process. A foreign college professor already approved for U.S. employment wanted to bring his secretary with him. The problem was that there were many locals looking for clerical positions, so the application was turned down. The professor insisted that only his current secretary knew him well enough. He contacted one of our U.S. Senators to get the decision reversed, so he could bring his mistress/secretary with him. It’s just one example of how the process works, and it’s still going on.

    As long as you include pot smoking, which puts the same types of tars and particulates in the lungs, I agree with you.

    Maji: Your post is not off topic. Plain packaging to effect cultural change away from unhealthy habits is mandated by an intrusive government. The same goes for ambiguous regulations in the field of agriculture. The idea is to cloak intended consequences in plain packaging so as claim they were unintended consequences once people start to complain. By then it will be too late.

    That car has the swoopy curves of a 1990′s model Ford Tempo or Taurus, too old to have the internal trunk lock release. She didn’t do this to herself, so I’m inclined to accept her story at this point.

    A Republican Congressman is doing what our President and his corrupt Odministration have no inclination to do. Once our Marine is released, the ‘crats will try to claim the glory, of course.

    The map accompanying this article names the District of Columbia, but no other jurisdiction, Does this mean the “mysterious illness” has hit there? If so, we might see some significant action being taken.

    You gotta give Hammad Akbar credit for coming up with a great name for his product.

    How can you have an effective vice squad if you cannot provide it with the best vices that other peoples’ money can buy?

    There is a difference between “He was well hung” and “He was well hanged.”

    This was India, not Indonesia.

    Not nearly as violent as Mount Saint Helens in 1980.
