    So? Lotta poisons are used as medicines in lower doses. Belladonna, Strychnine, even Curare.

    I guess Robic didn’t know much about lead poisoning then. Or if he meant to strap the bottles to himself, then that’s okay.

    I think meant that he picked of FAKE water bottles which were in fact nothing more than lead weights. As for the mummy thing I think it would have been cheaper to unwrap the the mummies in Egypt and ship just the wrappings.

    Lead-filled water.? That’s a P’ED if I’ve ever heard of one. They even cheated back then.

    There is a very long tradition of cheating in the Tour de France…

    Making mummies was a racket in Egypt to at least the ’s. As in mummies only a few years old.

    I just wonder how many Kings and notables were poisoned with Hemlock and other noxious herbs that ended up being Mummies..Rosecrucian Museum in San Jose,Ca has quite a collection..I recommend it..

    As valuable as mummies are, I find that difficult to believe. That’s like using the first issue of Super-man as toilet paper.
