    That was brilliant! :D Thanks for brightening an otherwise dull day. It was the weird juxtaposition of his gold-mining activities with his 23-piece salsa band that cracked me up especially.

    God bless eccentrics. :)

    A neighbor should sneak over to this guy's yard in the night with a bag full of pyrite - just to make things interesting...

    btw, who are these "workers"? Down a homemade shaft, breathing through a gardenhouse? - I would guess they aren't union.

    So he decided to dig in the frontyard instead of the privacy of his backyard? He could have pulled an Encino Man and claimed he was digging his own pool by hand.

    LOL.

    That would be awesome. Just hide one chunk half-meeter past where he last stopped digging.
