Relics of a well spent youth

The only money out of pockets might be a slice of greasy pizza at 3am. It was a fantastic way to be young for a while. bl1nk

The Art of the Steal: "They were a quiet couple that kept to themselves"; running the jewels (HT: gwint); the world's top art forgery detective; hunting the con queen of Hollywood; how to steal a shark, baby; how to steal it all.
