Wow something terrible must have happened outside cause while I was reading that article the smell of bullshiate just kept getting worse and worse.

Glad I'm not the only one who smelled that.

It's one of those shows you watch on mute, so you can appreciate the scenery without idiot commentary.

Aztec gold?
He's a good dog, but not worth a damn.

He's rat terrier/chihuahua so he got the name Aztec.

First prove that there are real results, actual treasure or historically informative findings. Otherwise, it's like that show they did about the Oak Island "money pit" - an interesting idea that I'll spend a few minutes reading about, but not enough there to make me watch an entire TV series about it.

Huh. So far all we have is a word of a guy named "Miklos" and the map he (supposedly) got from an astronaut. And that the map is totally on the money, sure thing, so far 5 out of 5... something. Not actual wrecks actually discovered but 5 out of 5 of something and you can have his word on it, so it's a sure thing.

He just needs some funding, so you have an opportunity to invest into enterprise at the early stage and get some returns!

Yeah, I'll pass.

Some friends of mine and I went looking for a shipwreck a few years ago. I won't say what ship it was or exactly where we think it is now, but we gave up after looking into the legalities of salvaging the wreck. After taking in consideration that we would have to spend millions that we didn't have to fight the State of California and the country of Spain for possession of the shipwreck, we trash-canned our research and went back to having fun doing something else.

Aren't those two basically contradictory?

Let me guess it'll be like those other treasure hunting/ mythical animal show where lots of exploring, they hear a noise or find some rusty nails and it means something. Pass.

It's like any other heist. Before you do the job, you need a fence, a way to hide the money, your getaway plan, and guys you can trust to not start spending lavishly and talking a lot.

In other words, you probably made the right decision.

That Oak Island thing dates back far.  I remember reading about it in school back in the 1970's, and it was over 100 years old then.

If it was actually worth money he'd be retrieving gold not selling it as a Discovery tv show.
