BigLuca: Deep Contact: Amazing gold is worth so much. It's only real value is in electronics and optics.Probably from ancient times when we mined gold for the aliens and they gave us food morsels or beads.It is amazing the number of times people, smart people, have told me they back a gold standard because the dollar have value based on people believing it does, but gold has intrinsic value based on it's scarcity.I then point out the number of materials that are rarer and way cheaper than gold, but ... nope, nothing.
