    Lol. No, but the video in the O P's article claims it might be a 1 in 3 chance, so it could be said the odds are on your side. It's just me playing Advocatus Diaboli for the hell of it, so don't get too precious old boy.

    For interest only, here's a video of the discovery.

    Let's not forget the locals who've been running all over it for the past 70 odd years. Don't tell me that some of them don't have the opportunity of having gold teeth, dirt poor or not.

    I think he should have a sales promotion. "In one of our hot dogs you will find yamamoto's gold tooth!". Its a cash cow idea!!
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie
