Your Delusional...You have VERY LITTLE "FREEDOMS"..Come down to where I live( Colombia) no One cares what you do.
Ken.

Ken: You really think "no one cares what you do" in Columbia ? I'll be the Debbie-downer kill-joy to challenge that : Let's test your theory: Go down to the the governmental offices (county or state or federal offices) that administer whatever land it is, that you routinely hunt with no problem (ie.: "no one cares"). Ask around, desk to desk, bureaucrat to bureaucrat , archie-to-archie, asking each of them: "Hi, can I metal detect at such & such location ?" Be sure to use words like "dig" and "treasure" and "artifact" and "resources".

And I'll bet you dollars to donuts, that you can eventually find someone to say "No".

Hence ... how can you say "No one cares " ?

Ok, now hurry. Go do the right thing :)

You're the one that said "No one cares". And I agree with you, that THAT is the "test of reality".

The reason I brought this up, is that , on other threads, there has been someone to fetch a "no" at various places. And if someone tried to tell them "no one cares" (Ie.: you got a bored bureaucrat pencil pusher "safe" answer), the skittish person will do JUST WHAT I PARODY HERE : They'll say : "What do you mean no one cares ? Didn't you see the answer from the desk jockey ? Hence : Someone "cares" " Doh!

Academia has a strong socialist bent that allows the elitists to believe there is a double standard where property is assumed to be an asset of the governing and the rights of individuals are actually an enemy to community good. Better to lose it forever or see it rot in the ground than fall into the hands of a private citizen. Most of what they recover will live out its live in a box in a basement and 99.99999999% are meaningless in historical terms, but you'd think they were scraps of the dead sea scrolls in their thinking.
Absolute power corrupts much like a Ph.D effects an ego. IMHO

Most Academia is educated beyond their intelligence.
