    Terracotta theft: Chinese anger over stolen warrior thumb - BBC News



    What would be an appropriate punishment for this idiot?

    Snapping his own thumb off perhaps... without anaesthetic of course.

    Nah, lock him in a room with a large bucket of rusty spoons, and a few small cubes of basalt, and don't let him out until he has carved perfect replacement thumbs.

    He'd probably need a dozen or more lumps of the basalt, because if chipped at too vigorously it does tend to snap

    Yanks will just blame the Chinese for sending a genuine figure over. Anyone with any sense would have sent a passable fake if they value it that much.

    Maybe this should be in that 'WW3 imminent' thread. Human race ended over a bit of clay pottery.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Maybe the yanks should just replace the whole thing with one of their own....
