Rapmaster2000: Smackledorfer: Emeraldstar: Back in the early 1990s when gold was about $6 an ounce my husband bought 50 LBS of silver. He sold it not too long back when silver was selling at $32.50 an ounce. He says he is waiting for silver to collapse again , so he can buy another 50 to 100lbs of the stuff and sit on it until its worth rises again. These things work in cycles. The patient will make money. The dumb will cry.

The whole 'im smrt ur dumb' bit means a lot more when it isn't "my husband is smarter than you".

Just for future bragging.

That and 9% year-over-year while nice is still not exactly a coup.  I'd be more impressed if you did something like put your money into Pier 1 in 2009 and made 20200% off it by 2013.

That is not a typo.

Magorn: Interestingly enough, aside from accidental losses, such as the sinking of ships or buried hordes whose locations were forgotten, the supply of gold in the world, in the world has been considered to have on increased throughout history.  The Gold mined in Roman mines in the hundreds BC is still around, and can be melted an reused, and all the new stuff we pull up everyday only adds to the supply.   Until recently, that is,  the use of gold in electronics has actually caused minor destruction in the world gold supply as the gold used in these applications is considered "consumed" because the amounts individually are too small to allow for cost-effective recovery of it when the device is no longer used.

snowshovel: Doesn't gold have some value as a conductive metal? Or for imprinting uses on DVDs?


Gold is a better electrical/heat conductor than copper. It's also utterly rust-proof, even better than silver (tarnish) and copper (patina). If the price drops low enough, you could (and should) put gold pipes in for cold water plumbing, and string up gold wire for Ethernet. And those fancy copper-core pots and pans would be better w/ gold, too. The reason people don't use gold for these things is b/c it costs too damn much. Similar for diamond. Diamond is an incredible heat-sink for small circuits, b/c it doesn't conduct electricity but sucks up excess heat so well. It's also the best grit substance for polishing. But its main use is still getting chicks to bang ugly dudes.

Bah.  Gold is too heavy to easily transport, especially for caravans without wagons.  Plus it's too soft to be useful unless alloyed, and there are better metals for anything you'd make from the alloy.

If you buy leather, craft and sell garments and you'll make a mint off of most visitors.

Skip the gold and dig for malachite, tetrahedrite, galena, and hematite.  If you're lucky you'll also find some flux stone and lignite, and then you can laugh over dinner while the world burns (which will happen if a dragon drops by).

Also, word to the wise... plump helmets and rock nuts.

This.

Gold is, basically, just some pretty rock that someone found in the ground.  In a kind of post-apocalyptic society, it has no intrinsic value.. ZERO...   A far better metal to hoard would be gold's cousin, lead.  More specifically, enough raw supplies to make bullets, lots and lots of bullets... THOSE would have real value.  The dude with all the ammo is the dude with all the power.

Hasn't anyone watched Revolution or The Walking Dead??????


well lead's nice, but not strictly necessary for ammo, hard wood can make a decent bullet in a pinch, as can kiln fired-clay. what you REALLY want is a stockpile of sulfur.   Charcoal's easy to make, and anyone with access to a bat-filled cave or bird nesting ground (or in a pinch human or cow manure) can refine enough nitrates, but Sulfur?  Sulfur's tricky, you have to find a supply and mine it, and there is no real substitute.  In my vision of Post apocalyptic America I become the richest man in the US by allowing all those folks with the rapidly becoming useless glocks, ar-15's uzi's etc etc to trade them in for a muzzleloader, a bullet casting kit and a supply of blackpowder,  and then use the automatics to equip a paramilitary force to lock down all local supplies of sulfur.
