<html><div style='background-color:'><DIV>there seems to be W-A-A-A-Y to much ensisheim out there for sale on websites based on the tkw AND the amount that actually got pilfered off the thing shortly after arrival (which had to be actually curated and held on to for 508 years if my math is correct, for you to get your lovely little micro from a website w/ paypal). ever see "the red violin"? well, the same kinda thing would have to happen for you to get your slice IF your slice is infact, true ensisheim and not some other skyrock that looks like it visually and geochemically. why would peasant- class people even consider preserving a skyock? what are the odds of it making it all the way to websites from 1492? a legit purchase of this rock would demand EXCELLENT provenance. would some please elaborate on this provenance established and how these cute little slices of an otherwise ordinary chondrite make it to websites, shows, and ultimately into livingrooms via a VERY phat ride on the wallet express. most wall
ets that tote this skyrock were big, phat lazy, channel- surfing , potato chip-chomping, couch commanders but after toting even a small slice of ens. those wallets were reduced to lean and mean, fit'n'trim builds similar to the builds of usmc drill instructor. w/ that kind of weight , you'd think the stuff was a neutron star. nosey noses wanna know.</DIV></div><br clear=all><hr>MSN 8 helps <a href="http://g.msn.com/8HMZEN/2020">ELIMINATE E-MAIL VIRUSES. </a> Get 2 months FREE*.</html>
