There isn't any F-ING MOON NAZI GOLD. There never was any f-ing MOON NAZI GOLD. The search for Moon Nazi Gold has destroyed innumerable historical artifacts and irreplaceable historical sites.

What a waste to bury it.  My home lodge needs a new roof.

So the treasure is buried under a giant lower case l or a capital I?

Get Nic Cage on the case.

Old news. There was a documentary about this some years ago and the treasure was found in Philadelphia.

I am now more convinced than ever that there is MOON NAZI GOLD buried there. Nice try, illuminati.

You just want all that moon nazi gold for yourself. I'm wise to your games, Farker.

Can't this question be answered definitively in about 20 minutes with some ground penetrating radar?

If the Confederates had a tiny fraction of the gold in all the rumors about "lost Confederate treasure," they wouldn't have lost the war, they would have been able to buy the entire British Army.

Just FYI, Those guys really don't take kindly when you show up at their lodge trying to get one of them to redo your chimney. Farking false advertising in my opinion.

They're free in the sense that they're not tied down to any one lover.

I have it on good authority that it's buried under J street.

I have one question. If you are going to bury treasure, why would you bury it in a public place? Sure no body can dif it up but neither can you.

Bury that shiat in a disused corner of Camp David or Mount Weather. Heavily tucking guarded, but also discrete enough to dig up of the world is ending.

I guess if you plan on being King of America after a nuclear war or something it makes sense to be able to say "God has led me to this spot 500 feet from the white house" but come on.

I am actually a bit nostalgic for this kind of nutter. They have a hobby that keeps them happy and doesn't hurt anyone. Maybe they're a bit eccentric, but they're still OK to associate with or grab a beer with after work.

The breed of conspiracy theorist we seem to be having today are ... different. And not in a good way.

So there's definitely a treasure down there?

Someone get the dynamite.

At halftime I went down to the concession to get Ethel a snow cone. Here he comes, right out of the cheap seats, dribbling, didn't have nothin' on but a smile I yelled "DON'T LOOK ETHEL!" but it was too late, she'd already been mooned.

I'm pretty sure the Freemasons wouldn't believe in relics and treasures, at least not here on earth. For the true treasure would be in the fellowship of Masons and ownership of vast tracts of land.

I'm told it's a bed and breakfast run by a delightful pair of retired combat cyborgs.

Don't encourage them. 
The fact that SOMETHING is down there casting a radar shadow is all they are gonna focus on and run with.
The radar image of the void from a ten foot wide brick drainage tunnel is gonna look exactly like a picture of a super triple double secret Clinton child molestation/blood drinking lair to the Qcumber crowd.

The Amber Room from Catherine Palace in St. Petersburg had to end up somewhere.

Probably in some oligarch's dacha outside of Moscow.

I've read enough Dan Brown to know that some guy mutilated himself and murdered a dozen people to find it but it turns out to be a book of Ben Franklin fart jokes.
