Cursed Treasure


King Tut, Montezuma, The Knights Templar, Blackbeard, Oak Island, they all have one thing in common… their treasures are cursed.  Why?  Seriously, who went around cursing all these treasures?  Is there a coven that people with treasure can call upon to lay down the curse?  Also, if they are all cursed, why haven’t we figured out how to uncurse them?

I have yet to read a single article or journal entry that says:  Found cursed treasure, found old crone (or guy with weird, pointy hat) who knew about these things, got it reversed, grabbed treasure, no one died, am now incredibly wealthy.

Nor have I found one like this:  Found treasure, was unsure about grabbing it, but couldn’t find anything that said it was cursed, decided to risk it, brought it home okay, no one died, am now incredibly wealthy.

We mere mortals love to play up the idea of a curse.  The mothers’ curse might be real, which is part of the reason I don’t have children (good grief, I can’t imagine mini-mes running around, arguing amongst themselves about aliens, the reason for the decline of civilization during the middle ages, and the merits behind democratic-socialism).  Everything else is pretty much a matter of belief… If you believe in a curse, you’ll find evidence to support it.

For example, yes people died after opening Tut’s tomb… but it was Egypt in the 1920’s, it would be more surprising if people hadn’t died.  The place is dusty, dirty, people are living in tents, and it’s hot.  There are mosquitoes carrying diseases.  Sand and dirt is blowing around (shaving cuts get infected really easy).  And the Gods only know what sorts of molds, fungi, and spores were trapped inside the tomb.  Plus, the deaths associated with the curse are spread out over dozens of years, during which time lots of people died that had nothing to do with Tut’s tomb.

Also, I’m really curious about how many people know how to accurate attach a curse. Mothers can do it, but only a specific kind and it doesn’t kill you.  So, who else is doing it?  How are they managing to do it?  Is there some kind of psychic curse hotline that people can call when they need a curse?  Where do I get the number?

Ok, done ranting…
