Swiss police are looking for a forgetful individual who left something rather important on a train -- a package full of gold bars, worth more than $190,000.

Sounds like a dead drop that didn’t work properly. Wonder who the intended recipient was.
It was me! Seriously! I was playing around with the inter-dimensional time-space portal in my den and they slipped out of my pocket and dropped through the wormhole before I could catch them.
Thanks for finding them! You can send them to my address in Tokyo.
“Wonder who the intended recipient was.”
Someone that is very angry right now.
Well, Sting said “It’s Probably Me”
It was me. I thought my wife was right behind me and was going to get it. How do I go about getting it back?
A dead drop gone wrong - unhhh boss, about that 1000 oz of gold....
Closer to 100 ounces, according to my calculations. An easy lift.
Wow, I knew Switzerland was rich, but they carry around gold bars for the train fare?
In “Goldfinger” they showed gold bars as having stamps showing where they were cast.
Sounds like criminal activity.
” The Treasure of Sierra Madre” is agreat movie. Wonder if they will censor it for ray-ciss scenes about Mexicans.
Oddjob has become a bit forgetful in his advanced age?
Who ever found it
Should sleep with
One Eye Open!
If i left 10,000.00 cash on a Amtrak train they would be looking for me as well...to ARREST me.
Then i would probably have to spend the same fighting the feds for 3 years to get it back...
