The Skull Of Beethoven

#1  Postby aufbahrung » Jul 11, 2020 1:25 pm

If someone offered you the genuine skull of Beethoven or some other famous historic character they claim to have dug up for a few grand would you take it to put in a glass case with your secret collection of famous skulls?

I have no intention to start a collection of famous skulls, so, no.

No. I'd just keep it with my regular skulls.

I believe your question answers your question.

Why would they need a "few grand" to dig up a skull? I have a shovel they can borrow for nowt. :scratch:

Depends on the condition. Can I drink out of it?

Travel? That's what we used to do before the contagion. I once travelled/hitchhiked to Greece for 30 quid. Of which fringe festival do you write?

If you make me an offer for the skull of Mozart or Molière, I'm setting the fuzz on you because you're trying to con me.

I’m more into maniraptoran theropod skulls. If it ain’t over 60 million years old I don’t want it, and even then I’d rather these skulls be curated properly.

This is a misunderstanding. When you apply for a job, they ask for soft skills and hard skills. Not skulls.

I do have a skull collection as well. No primates though, mostly native mammals that I find when hiking so far.
I wouldn't pay any money for a human skull, that would be illegal. It's not worth the penalty, plus a little too creepy for me, I guess the word is. I might buy replicas of our extinct ancestors if they weren't so pricey.

Kinda hard to collect living hooker skulls isn’t it?
