    Re: Stump Spot - The Game

    According to the link I've given here -

    There are three gold mines in Wales today

    * Dolaucothi, near Pumpsaint, Dyfed, owned and run by the National Trust, so can be visited. The mine was operated by the Romans, but after the Romans departure, the mine lay abandoned for centuries. Revival in the 19th century did not last long, with the mine finally closing in 1938. Dolaucothi's fascinating story is today told on the "Miners Way" self guide surface trail and also on guided underground tour.
    * Gwynfynydd Gold Mines in Dolgellau started in the 1860's and has proved to be one of the richest gold mines in Britain. Gwynfynydd Gold Mine has now been restored after being inactive, and is again in full production. It has a recorded output of more than 2,000 oz of fine gold since 1884. Visitors to Gwynfynydd are offered the opportunity to visit the working gold mine, pan for gold and experience the search for Welsh gold.
    * Clogau Gold Mine in Bontddu, near Barmouth, is a working gold mine which is not open to the public.

    Ey what? That's Spike, that is.

    You don't seriously think I know the actor's name, I hope.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.

    Yeah, that's what I meant, because I don't and I wondered who he was!

    I'm astounded, I had no idea.

    Chookie stumped Spot a sixth time! (I wasn't near a computer to check, so not getting it with a browser didn't happen)

    eta: "It has a recorded output of more than 2,000 oz of fine gold since 1884"? In my head, that's roughly US$ 500,000 at today's prices, garnered over 120 years, an average gross income of US$ 4,500 a year in current money. I'm not sure that really qualifies as a mine, it's more a hobby.

    One James Marsters, apparently: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spike_%28Buffyverse%29

    "his first professional acting role was Ferdinand in The Tempest at the Goodman Theatre in 1987. In this production, he was rolled onto the stage strapped naked to a wheel".
