I'd make a set of teeth with this

There's only 1 escape route from Key West. Unless you own a boat, of course.
Authorities Friday were checking fingerprints and clarifying video images showing the theft of a $550,000 gold bar from a museum in Key West, Florida.

For 25 years, visitors to the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West, Florida, had the opportunity to lift the glittery piece of treasure in a special display case.

"It was touching something that came off the ocean floor," said Melissa Kendrick, the museum's executive director.

This is, of course, way cool that they let you handle the gold -- I'm just amazed this didn't happen earlier!! Wow.

Even if they get it back that'll come to an end.
