i guess mdcLXVI is not a treasure hunter in real practice. i have encountered 6 bombs that shook the ground within 20 meters radius. 3 in 2013, 3 in 2016. .....
renantagum30 : Are you aware that many many countries also have this problem of unexploded ordnance? That exist from past wars. They find dangerous unexploded bombs in Germany, England, Russia, Afghanistan etc...
Heck: Even here in the USA, there are Civil War site metal detector enthusiasts who find a civil war era land mines. One of them took a few home as a curiosity relics. Of which one went off and killed the guy while he was unloading it from his truck . (Yes, it can still be live after all those years).
And there can be dangerous explosives in civilian non-war scenarios too. Two examples:
1) A guy I know found a hand grenade, buried a few inches below the surface, at a wooded area of a park in San Francisco. At first, he didn't know what it was (it was caked up with dirt). So he start hitting on it with his digger tool, to knock the mud and dirt off. When he realized what it was, he dropped it and ran ! Called the police, who called out the bomb squad. Turns out it was real grenade! Probably brought back by a returning soldier from some past conflict ? Who knows how it got there.
2) I live 18 miles away from Fort Ord, CA. There was decades and decade of army training grounds there (WWII, Korea, Vietnam, etc...). Finally, the base closed down in the early 1990s. And the government had to clean up all those bomb practice ranges. Of course, most is all just exploded practice rounds. But they did indeed discover live ones . That for whatever reason hadn't gone off during practice, etc...
THUS: Since other countries all over the earth have unexploded ordnance problems. And can have NOTHING to do with "treasures".
Thus mdcLXVI is doing a good service , by pointing out some logical fallacies . And he's doing it as someone from within your own ranks of folks from your side of globe, culture, etc... A voice of fresh air.
Sure, treasures can exist. But on the other hand, it's possible to go overboard with conspiracies, booby traps, cryptogram clues, legends, etc.... A lot of that stuff has innocuous normal explanations, and does not necessarily mean "treasure".
