Thieves Steal Ancient Poison From Museum
#1
Where's Indiana Jones when you need him? Authorities are trying to track down an ancient vial containing a deadly poison, stolen from the Dutch national museum of science and medicine this week. Thieves broke into an outbuilding at Leiden's Rijksmuseum Boerhaave and took a refrigerator-sized safe holding a small amount of money and a glass bottle of curare, used by South American tribes to poison arrows. "It was offered to us recently as part of a collection, but we decided we didn't want to have it" and were "going to have it destroyed safely," the museum director tells AFP.

Thieves will probably hurt themselves with the poison, sounds like they were their for the money and took the poison as an afterthought. Dumb asses may even try drinking it.

What kind of curare?

What poisons?

That is what I want to see.

I have studied curare poisons.. From South American tree frog secretions to the dreaded Haitian zombie puffer fish toxin.

Anyone have any idea?
 

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately.
Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something.
They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful,
so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better
not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."
-Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924)28th President of the United States
