During the 1840's, Joe and George convince their friend jack to give them the location of the motherload. Unfortunately for them, the gold is on jack's property. Jack said they can keep whatever they carry back. The next day, Joe and George head of with food, water, sacks, pans, and their donkey. But later they lose their sacks so they can't carry the nuggets. So instead they melt the gold, load it onto the donkey, and head back. When they get back, Jack says the gold only belongs to one of them. Who does the gold belong to?
