    Question What would you do if you found something really crazy while MDing?

    Like for instance;

    Some kind of ancient technology that should not exist, or

    A Piece of a UFO, or

    A trunk with 500 LBS of gold bars in it

    Basically something that could bring great scrutiny upon you. You find it on your own land, and you find it by yourself. Nobody knows but you.

    Would you keep it to yourself, or go public?

    Google the Saddle Ridge Hoard. This was a couple in Sonora,Ca. who found a cache and what happened.

    The first two would require authentication, by science. To go
    public without that authentication you'd just be considered as
    yet another nutcase.

    If I found all that gold? First, I'd get it secured, somewhere, and
    then I'd go find a damn good attorney and get some advice.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    If I found something very valuable, no one needs to know besides me.
    Ain't into publicity, chest thumping or feeding ego.

    Ancient technology from space ? Well thats goofy, no one could say what they'd do in such an over the top hypothetical situation.

    Of course it is... thus you have extrapolated the whole reason behind the thread.

    Go look on YouTube for an old video by AquaChigger. He was quite calm as he pulled a hoard of silver coins out of the water.
