Your daily dose of old world gangsters who were rubbed out doing what they loved most. Plus some other fun stuff.
Arrest of Francis 'Two Gun' Crowley
Thursday, January 23, 2014
One thing modern archaeologist don't have to worry about. Gun wielding, albeit well dressed, gangsters and cursed pharoahs who shoot things from their finger tips.* If you look in the back you'll see our old friend the Phantom Detective. Remember him? He likes to hangout in graveyards and watch people get whacked without trying to help. Apparently same goes for museums.
* This is an assumption. If you are an archaeologist and do run into this type of thing please let us know.
