    I'll make it happen if I can find a solid block of 24K gold, a crucible, proper casting supplies, and a big pitcher.

    You guys are funny!

    Is that better? :P


    You know, Wireman, if you make it brass, it would look nearly as neat, for 1/100th the cost. Hmmm, you know those electroplated leaves? I wonder if it's in any way DIY.

    That's the thing, if youreally want one, they're really not all that expensive. If you really want one, you'll find out where to go to buy a nice, healthy one. They even show up in death cubes on occasion for like (sic) five bucks.

    If some idiot sees that high priced example and thinks "naw, I'll just go out and dig one up", he's got another think coming. It takes a bit of homework to find the wild stands in the mountains, and the Darlington trail in Oregon is really busy, and well protected. If the poacher wannabe is so dumb not to catch on how readily available these plants are from TC, he's not gonna find the plants (or gonna get caught and earn some jailtime).

    Nah, I think the first thought really would be "Gosh, that much? Wonder what I'll see on eBay?".

    I was hoping you were gonna say they spray painted the leaves with gold paint, that would be pretty cool actually. I think I'll do that to my Sarrs once the leaves are dead.
