Added lines 5-8:

One possible origin for the name of this weapon is the American-born "explorer", Harold Bell Lasseter. Lasseter claimed to have found a massive "reef" of gold in the Australian desert, and actively sought financiers and workers to help him bring back proof of this reef. In the 1930s, he got his expedition - and his body was found a few years later in a cave, his diary in a sardine tin. Today, the name is synonymous with the allure of gold, and elaborate, fanciful futility.
