Hi Fred,

"Artifact" would imply that your legislative authorities do believe in the
existence of highly developed aliens somewhere between Mars and Jupiter.
Maybe we can make here on the list a little collection to donate some more
modern books than those of Percival Lowell to the Library of Congress, that
this assumption has turned out to be unlikely.

Uh coffee was perhaps a bad example - the prices for gasoline, energy,
housing, meat will bring you immediately back!

Can I sign too as non-citizen?

Good night,
(have to take my pills, was too talkative...)

Martin, is coffee a total cost of $7 per pound or are the taxes $7 per
pound? If it is ONLY $7 per pound total cost, being a coffee drinker, I may
consider moving to Germany, as we pay $9 to $11 per 12 ounces, plus sales
tax, in most States of the USA!
    A meteorite should not be considered an "artifact" unless it is found in
a Native American site or early American site. They are rocks, 99%+ never
used by early man. Glorious rocks, but rocks none the less. If you find a
rock on BLM land, other then petrified wood or fossils, you can haul it away
even if it weighs 499 pounds. The petrified wood limit is 250 pounds per
year per person.
As for rocks, no permit is needed on BLM land UNLESS you want to mine for
minerals. Picking up a rock, by hand, on the surface is not mining.
Sign me up to end this new ruling by our lord and master, the BLM.
