I tried the colhelper two months ago to try to initiate a loan from the 
MNHN invertebrates collection. The result was equally impressive: 
nothing happened. A simple calculation learns that by this day my 
message must be way beyond the heliopause, some 1555 billion miles from 
earth. It will reach proxima centauri in four years.
Simply going to Paris is a valid alternative: I was quite well received 
at the Museum a few years ago and life in Paris is OK.
