All,
So to be perfectly clear...  Yes I did talk to EU, he has a theory that Cooper retrieved the money he had buried dry, while the water was at flood level in June. Presumably Cooper waded into the water to dig the money out. Several bundles in that endeavor were uncovered, got wet and then were overlooked and got reburied. So from that description of the theory, the bills would have been exposed to the river above the sand and could presumably get diatoms on them.

I generally do not argue with theories unless they have zero grains of truth. The diatom research has sent us ALL scratching our heads trying to come up with a scenario that fits the data. I think everyone needs to get behind some theory and champion it no matter what the level of plausibility. Think tanks work best when everyone throws all their ideas on the table and then the group tries to put the pieces together in the best way. I suggest everyone mirror EU and come up with SOMETHING and throw it on the table. We can sort it out down the road.

Lets just let R99 and EU and Bruce Smith do all the talking and you take a hike?  Congrats on your research. Sorry it lasted only a day!  :'(

Georger, why don't you take a hike?  TK has actually done some original work here.  What have you done?
