Just received an interesting request linked to image:

Someone in Kazakhstan (brokered through a bank in Dubai) is offering me an AN12 for half a million dollars or "15 pieces of diamonds middle 8-12 10 carats and 7 kg of Gold - 22 carats."
He must think I'm some sort of warlord, as he points out that the AN12's capabilities are:
"100 soldiers and 20 more tones capacity"

Do you guys think I should go for the deal? LOL

It would be a steal at twice that price, and will be just the thing you need when you make your move towards world domination.

I thought you were getting offered diamonds in exchange for licensing the photo!

That would have been....fun.

It doesn't give a name, just an email address, on behalf of a company called IPF Contract. The email was sent by some "Zerah Steve".

I can offer you a 747-100 for that price if you need more soldiers to be transported - Just send me the money to my PayPal Account (you can trust me)

Does your PayPal account accept diamonds too?
