Re: If you were bankrupt, starving and cold, could YOU burn your kit to keep you alive?
I recall hundreds of Beatle protesters down in southern US where it's never cold burned Beatles albums, records, other memorabilia after Lennon's "bigger than Christ" statement in 1966. Now some smart person shoulda stood there and ran off with the lot of stuff. Woulda been a millionaire today. Wonder if any Ludwig black oyster pearls were torched? Silly Americans.
