I never understood the gold thing

Posted by Wickedpinto on October 10, 2010

Even as an inflationary hedge, gold is nothing more than a commodity given excessive value based on virtually nothing.  Reason has this brief post, really just a bit of excerpting.

What is golds intrinsic value?  It’s a good conductor (though not best) of electricity and heat.  The heat part makes it excellent for jewelry, especially since it’s all shiny, Ohh, brb, a ball of yarn.

Back, because when worn, it quickly assumes body temperature.  It’s also a “Noble Metal” meaning it doesn’t oxidize, or decay in general absent specific circumstances, making it ideal for some computer and space applications, but the total volume of gold used in electronics is almost completely insignificant compared to jewelry, let alone the total stockpiles held my nations.

Does anyone know the real value of gold other than it’s virtually insignificant chemical characteristics and the Oooh, Shiny.  Brb, there’s a lazer pointer outside the door.

Damn, forgot to open the door.

Oh, Crap, Mormons In Space!!

Can you imagine the extra payload required for such a thing?  I mean the extra copies of the book of mormon ALONE will be more than fuel, explains why the guy is into fuel depots.  I never knew John Goff is a mormon.  It really doesn’t matter, but I just wanted to make a lame joke.

I’m of the Trey Parker school of religious tolerance.  “Mormons are just nice people.” and I think Mrs. Skinny made an extra sammich just cuz I’m likeable.
