So Montezuma was killed and the gold spirited off up into the southwest by a couple thousand porters/slaves.
Hmm ? say five thousand people and they only ate once a day, and that was comprised of 8 ounces of food...... per day. (my guess would be more) so Lets take that every two people made one pound of food X times half of the 5,000.... that would be 2,500 pounds of food a day. Just ......ahem, 'food for thought' ........
Then there's the lake in Utah, thought to be a repository where the porters/slaves were silenced with death. Where's all the mountains of bones. Or were the snails that voracious ? Then the white chalk mountains.... then the Rhoads mine, then the Carre Shinob in the Uinta's.
Certainly a lot to ponder.
