What's the reason? They might allow people to get high off the moon?

It says in the article that some were given out as gifts, therefore genuine and not stolen. This one may be one of the rocks handed to foreign dignitaries, or it may be one of the stolen ones. Unless they marked each rock to make them identifiable I doubt anyone will know, apart from the seller.

I don't see why it should be illegal to sell these, as long as they aren't stolen and they have no scientific value. If they had then I'm sure they wouldn't have given them away.

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

If it can be "given away", then all the seller needs to do is form a Non-profit organization, then give the rock away for a "donation", then close down the non-profit. I've seen several pastors/leaders of failed churches do the same thing with the church property. They give away the property, but recieve a donation in return. Then close down the church and hopefully give the money away to charity. (Sometimes they don't and instead live off the money for years.)

You do believe that we have launched satellites into space yes? And that there are currently humans up there floating around?

So, I don't think anyone has mentioned this thus far but I think it's important to ask...um, who exactly would ever even consider buying a damned rock for over a million dollars?

I think the U.S government is collecting these moon rocks for the purpose of creating an army of evolved pokemon like for example wigglytuff and clefable.They cleverly mask the obvious connection by using the word "rock" rather than "stone".

Some people attempted to buy the Brooklyn bridge or the Eiffel tower.. so why not a piece of rock.. I believe there were attempt to still and sell the rock of Mecca.  What's the difference?

Well the Brooklyn Bridge and the Eiffel Tower are rather large pieces of architecture.  Many would describe the Eiffel Tower as an art piece.  I'm not familiar with the Rock of Mecca though.  My point was that this sounds like a rather small chunk of pretty useless rock.  It's not even shiny (I would never refer to a gem as "useful" beyond shiny).  Its only real draw is that it's, apparently, from the Moon.  I can see how that might be desirable to some, but over a million dollars?  Really?

The United States tend to pick fights for the most ridiculous reasons. This comes to no surprise really.

If anything, this will evolved by proving that Obama's mother isn't a US citizen by some twisted evidence and therefore proving that Obama was never eligible for presidency in the first place.

:rolleyes:

I've been to Norway and know full well that the cold and alcohol can have some strange effects on people.  Therefore, I forgive you. :rolleyes:
