I have always thought that the Terracotta Warriors were pretty cool. I've also thought the Chia Pet was kinda nifty.
So when the guys were going to be in China, I thought they should use a goodly portion of George's remaining cash to spruce up the clay soldiers. It's a lot of soldiers in the Emperor's burial army.
In my Asian Art History course in college I heard a story where the farmer who found the clay soldiers spends his days at the site making his living from tips and posing for photos with tourists coming to see the army. I think that's pretty cool that he can make a living from digging up some guys made outta dirt.
Yes, yes... I know Chia Pets don't grow that quickly.... but, it's a comic.
