Maybe he can pull a Randi and claim he didn’t know it was wrong at the time?

An Austrian man is to be charged with disturbing the peace of the dead after police found 56 human skulls and 55 other bones at a museum he had created in his home.

Police in the province of Burgenland said the relics were taken without authorisation from a church cemetery and had now been returned.

The 47-year-old man, whose name was not immediately released, came to the attention of police when he tried to sell three skulls and two thigh bones at a flea market.

A police spokesman said he had never encountered such a case in his 37 years in the force and knew neither why the man had collected the bones nor why he had tried to sell some of them.

“But there’s nothing new under the sun,” he said.

    You can find some crazy shit at flea markets that’s for sure.

      There are strict laws and fines in the US for buying and selling body parts, according to the show, Oddities New York.

    You have quite the imagination. One could say irrationally so.

    I have a hunch you are the troll Ray Butler. Something about the smug tone and homoerotic avatar that screams angry latent homosexual troll. Which would mean you probably got banned for that, being a troll, and not so much defending James Randi. It’s ok to be gay, btw. No need to bottle it up and take it out on others. I also doubt you are capable of seeing things that way, because most Randi fanboys take his lead.
