    You're in a market, in a strange land. You're not feeling well. A shop-keeper recommends some traditional medicine to help you. Only after you buy it do you discover that it's made from an animal which has been extinct for thousands of years.

    "The giant mammals have been extinct for around 10,000 years and are not covered by international agreements on endangered species." :unsure:

    yep! No matter how you slice it "dead as fuck for 10,000 years" means the "endangered" ship has definitely sailed. :lol:

    breeding mammoths is easy! But the "quiet" part is a bitch. :( That and going to COSTCO for mammoth chow all the time.
