    Not surprised that this is actually happening. Capitalism was nothing but a giant with feet of clay.

    I like to search for urban treasures too. I live in the party part of campus and after a big night, you can generally find some pretty cool stuff. So far i`ve found: A silk tie, a pocket knife, a cell phone, and an iPhone :). I gave found a way to give the iphone back, although the person was a rich snob b!tch.

    Heh heh. Now the big question. Can he be taxed for what is essentially picking sh*t of the ground?

    The owners should claim their gems and sue his ass to recover them. They are not his. This world isn`t about "finders-keepers".

    madest - they would find it very hard to prove that they owned the gems in the first place.

    "The owners should claim their gems and sue his ass to recover them. They are not his. This world isn`t about "finders-keepers". "

    No i think in this case those would be his honestly. No one would pay any mind to these lost gems had he not went hunting for them.

    @madest

    Unfortunately, the previous owners would have no claim on the items. Objects discarded or lost in the street do indeed belong to whoever picks them up.

    So, every single time he pointed something out, unless it was in a bag, I didn`t see it. At all. He must have a really keen eye.

    1.) Groogle is a douche and his comments are all relatively stupid.

    Kaagan, gold is gold, and it`s really easy to melt down tiny pieces and make big pieces. Have you never heard of gold dust?
    Can`t tell if trolling or just stupid...

    Good for him!
    But I can`t help but be a bit grossed out at what other "treasures" are probably lurking in that dirt - like spit, feces, and so on. This experience has probably either covered him in microbiological cultures or given him the white blood cells of a champ.

    It`s not a stupid comment. There are salvage crews that think that anything found on the sea floor is theirs because they found it. The courts disagree. This is no different. Loser needs to simply get a job.
