Magnet Fishing & Sad Man Syndrome Strikes Again…

As the title says “Sad Man Syndrome Strikes Again”

Magnet Fishing is a harmless pastime indulged by men, women and children of all ages, or is it ?

Am I been kept in the dark and people are getting rich through this…

Is there another agender happening here that not everyone knows about, only the select few, hmm I wonder or is it the green-eyed monster making an appearance from a wasted source of life and oxygen stealer…It does seem that people do not understand that water is the only thing we humans cannot live without, and yet every day all around us we pollute the life-giving waterways with all sorts of rubbish, and a few are enjoying a new found notoriety with or without you-tube by cleaning out these polluted waterways of iron, and associated rubbish that has become tangled up with the shopping trolleys, computers, etc…

These all come out smelling so rotten its any wonder any aquatic life can survive… (before someone tells me that aquatic life cannot smell, it is spoken as metaphorically) Yet typical of life there is always one “berk” that’s got some sprouting to do, this twonk still hates metal detectorists but has now turned his attention to Magnet Fishing, it seems that those trolleys you guys are dragging out of the waterways up and down the country are archaeologic artefacts, and as such need to be reported, or that stolen moped needs to framed and hung in a museum as a warning about losing your property…tch-tch…Although Magnet Fishing is not just practised around the UK, its practised worldwide, with different laws of where you can and cannot do it, but here in the UK to a large extent we have very few laws, it is mainly busy-bodies who never cut the grade as a traffic warden, who wants to stick there nose in, where its not wanted, these are the brave ones, they will show there faces, but there is one person who hides behind a blog & reckons he champions the Archaeology of life, & its the governments who owns Artefacts etc.. this piece of poison is paul barford, I won’t even begin to put a link here as he is not worth the effort, lets quote his latest sprout of unintelligent misinformed rhetoric, on another group of people enjoying themselves, whilst helping to clean up there environment… this latest quote is so laughable…
“Obviously this is an even more ‘blind’ manner of removing archaeological evidence from the archaeological record than metal detecting, and nobody has been tempted to even think of creating a Code of Practice for Responsible Magnet Fishing in England and Wales. This rather begs the question whether one type of Collection Driven Exploitation of the Archaeological Record can be done “responsibly” (sic), if another cannot. Perhaps in fact the real answer is that in fact none of it can.”
Before I finish with sad people who do not live in the UK, let me quote what he does do, apart from snipe & moan about people rescuing yet more artefacts from the plough & the chemicals in the ground with a metal detector, and has now turned his attention to some people dredging old iron out of rivers canals etc… I quote his brief résumé …
“British archaeologist living and working in Warsaw, Poland. Since the early 1990s (or even longer) a primary interest has been research on artefact hunting and collecting and the market in portable antiquities in the international context and their effect on the archaeological record.”
In other words another Archaeologist, who is throwing his toys out of his pram, because he cannot get his own way.. so my final conclusion is two-fold… why does he live in Poland, is it because that’s the only place that will put up with him, & the UK wants him gone, “now my other theory is” that maybe, just maybe that’s the reason why we have a huge influx of Polish nationals flocking to this country, they all want to get away from him… If that’s the case “welcome”… Anyway back to real life, the world can be a sad place without sad people making it worse… Enjoy Magnet Fishing…

Metal Detector Fake’s…

As the title says fakes,  I wonder why Garret allows this, when First Texas acted to protect their brand name, and won their case in the highest courts, as the T2 was one of the most copied Detectors, mind you saying that, Minelab is copied and nothing is done about that, by Minelab, all strange… also i find it strange, that Garret is allowing this to happen, as i don’t think Charles Garret Senior, would have tolerated it… Garret must think and act on this “surely” … Because they cannot think they are  so big, that their future sales won’t be affected, when a new detectorist turn away from their brand, because a detector or pinpointer, did not perform, when the only reason for poor performance was that it was a poorly made, & inferior knock-off copy, whereas the original factory brand is one of the market leaders… Please remember Garret “bad news travels fast & good news travels slowly”… First Texas had there day in court & won their case; Ask yourself, how many T2 knock-offs do you see now…

yet these are not fakes, I take me hat off to them…

Only an hour…

Well as the title says only an hour, well more like forty-five minutes, but it was good enough to produce a rather unusual silver love token, and a hole that would have scared anyone, thinking that something rather huge and shiny was at the bottom of the hole, after digging down nearly twenty inches, the T2 started to get really excited, and so was i, then a peek of green appeared to the right of the hole, even more curious i, and by now the hole was starting to look like a small gravel workings, as the mouth of the hole was somewhat two foot in width, so laying flat of my stomach  i started to clean the soil away from around the object, it soon revealed itself to be, yes a somewhat rather larger than life “TAP” how the dickens did it get there at that depth is a mystery…

what else, couple of buttons, a musket ball, lead, gun caps scrap etc…
