What wusses, I've been waiting for this tomb to be opened forever! Stick on some hazmat suits, use scanning technology and simple cautiousness going through in case of traps and salvage that sucker. Hell, I'll go in. A suit should keep everyone safe from the mercury, and it needs to be drained anyway since its getting into the water.

Someone else said that it might cost billions to explore and retrieve objects from this tomb. After which, you have some invaluable artifacts that would have to remain in the hands of the State. In otherwords, you now how have 'priceless' objects that you'll also be forever indebted to maintain.

The State however, being Communist, is slow to move. Considering the cost of the retreival and the future maintenance costs of the artifacts that glorify a non-communist past, coupled with the modern problems that China faces...

I don't think that it'll happen anytime soon. :) Perhaps in our lifetime.

Yeah, and I heard the big problem was that we didn't have the technology to open it w/o damage. I understand if another 10 years is needed for technology to catch up and money to be raised for the opening. They could get the money- lots of people want to see this tomb opened. Causes for much stupider things have raised millions.

Still, if this isn't opened in my lifetime I'm gon flip
Waiting 100 years or, as some people suggest, FOREVER is awful and dumb and stupid.
My goal in life is to go see the beautiful museum that encompasses the opened tomb, showing artifacts and taking you on a tour to see inside. I guess I just need to live as long as possible. I'm only 19, so even if I die at 70 they have 51 years to move their butts.

Ok, I have to live to 100. Surely it will be open in 81 years!

Okay. Maybe within your lifetime, probably not within mine.

I thought China had enough poor to march them into the sea forever and they would never run out? So, march a couple into the Tomb... :innocent:

Seriously, I hope they are able to get in and record everything. The description of what it is Supposed to look like is Amazing.

I do the same thing with the candy bowl on my desk at work. I believe that they'd bend the truth to protect the treasures, but I wouldn't want to risk someone's life to find out, if someone volunteers, go for it.

  let's see..  possible mercury poisoning /  Wrath of Hasina ..   ya, i'd go with the tomb entry.    
It would be great to 'see'  what's in there though.

Wasn't there a legend or curse that said if you disturbed the tomb, the First sovereign emperor would awaken and conquer the world or something to that effect?

If you recall, Chin was not a very nice guy...he terrified the people and was a brutal sovereign.  There were those so afraid of his possible "return" they chose to leave his tomb in peace...just in case.

I read that years ago...long before the poorly made movie "Mummy part 3 - tomb of the dragon emperor" or whatever nonsense that was....

I wanna have traps in my tomb.  How cool would that be?

The planet is so overpopulated now that they just excavate and re-dig new graves over old ones.

But just WAIT 'til they get to mine!

They'd better hope they're union!

I say....if marriage is hard work, you're doing it wrong.  Love is not work.  Love is eternal.
