Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Okay first and foremost, DON’T do what this Canadian woman did. Yes we know that Dr. Jones said “it belongs in a museum,” but it really, really does not. Especially when the object in question is probably cursed, and from the world heritage site of Pompeii.

That out of the way- we ARE very glad to hear that the woman in question has since returned the items she illegally took home from Italy back in 2005.

According to The Guardian, “Nicole” sent a package with the stolen ‘fragments’ (probably pottery, walls, tiles) to a travel agent in southern Italy along with a confession.

“Please, take them back, they bring bad luck,” she wrote, “so much negative energy … linked to that land of destruction.” She continued, saying she had learned her lesson and wanted “forgiveness from God”.

“I am now 36 and had breast cancer twice,” she said. “The last time ending in a double mastectomy. My family and I also had financial problems. We’re good people and I don’t want to pass this curse on to my family or children.”

Yeah, so….maybe DON’T steal? And especially don’t steal from a freaking place like Pompeii??
