Seems a weird metal object has been found imbedded in a seam/lump of coal and there is no obvious explanation as to how it got there....

Man, I don't find anything of interest in my coal. Just bits of wood that I burn.

I once had a ball of clay or mud nearly the size of a soccer ball - about the size of a grapefruit - in one of my Kimmel's bags when I first started burning. Wish I got a pic of it. I didn't know what the hell it was until I busted it up into a million pieces. Yep - mud! :shock:
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ...Such laws make things worse
for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man."

- Thomas Jefferson, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in "On
Crimes and Punishment."
