Gold: It's For More Than Just Wealth Preservation

Tyler Durden's picture

Presented with little comment, aside to note that 32-year-old Indian Datta Phuge, thought this $25,000 solid gold shirt would be just right to attract female attention: "I know I am not the best looking man in the world but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt?" So much for the yellow metal being a barbarous relic.

I should have said Goldfoil hat.

Slight subject change,

I was told by a supposed insider (female doctor) from Venezuela that Chavez does not have cancer. If true, what if.. Chavez devised a scheme with which after repatriating Venezuelan gold does a disappearing stunt by not showing up for swearing in?

Think about it. The perfect Houdini, by which, no one will be after him. I want to see the body after his death if he does die.

Spare me the ritual of burried in the sea as a final wish.

Feed him to the Trillion Dollar Tuna

Very practical and environmentally friendly.. he just needs a little polish to take care of the pit stains and ring-around-the-collar.. and no phosphates.

Gonna give new meaning to having the "shirt stolen off his back"

EnslavethechildrenforBen's picture

This should help him with ring around the collar

He better not go boating while wearing that shirt...if he does, he's likely to have a "boating accident" and drown.

He's a gangsta and a player.

Why bother? All you have to do is go get a student loan that you never have to pay back.

How can you get better value than that?

I'm going to become a professional student and study how he made it, for as  long as I live, and all at your expense...

Of course I might not actually turn up to EVERY lesson, and I might not be too interested when I do occasionally get there, AND I might spend some of my new found wealth on some gold coins or somethin' but who gives a shit, as long as I'm not officially unemployed there's some serious mileage in this for sure...

Think about it. Why do I need to even bother trying to teach my children that they should work hard and be responsible for their own actions? Why?

Fuck it, the gravy train approacheth at one helluva rate of knots. Now all I need is to set up a trust, have that trust own a company that I can work for for a mere pittance and onward and fuckin' upward, as they say...

Putting it that way makes the new education funding changes sound like the makings of a bait and switch (the money/loans being the bait, the switch is when they change the legislation behind it as to how replayments are made [and dont think for a single HFTraded nanosecond they won't make them retrospective] ).

I,ll buy that for a trillion dollar platinum coin, personally minted by boy Timmy

You don't want his outfit for several reasons:  It's hard to run away from muggers.  If you fall in the water you're crab bait.  If you get the chick she'll get bored while you take it all off and the moment will be over.  It's really hard to get through the TSA scanners at the airport.  Lastly, you'll have to spend it all on back surgery and chiropractors.

you people live in too much fear, is falling all around you

Harlequin001's picture

Yeah, best to not bother eh...

CPL's picture

You would never get near that man.

 If you own a gold shirt, you hire the only body guards on the planet that can protect you with a ruthless efficiency.  The Nepalese mercenaries surrounding him would have an attacker quartered, disemboweled and beheaded before the second heart beat.

He'll be with his buddy bin laden, sharing a palace somewhere while waiting for their friend obama to show up and complete the trifecta.

"Insider" to what, the NED (National Endowment for Democracy)?  Are YOU an NED troll?

Colonial Intent's picture

Slight subject change,

I was told by a supposed insider (Bloke on internet)  that Oracle of Kypseli has VD. If true, what if.. Oracle of Kypseli devised a scheme with which after doing BJ's for 10$ a pop she does a disappearing stunt by not showing up after swallowing a quart of VD laced cum?

Think about it. The perfect Houdini, by which, no one will be after her. I want to see the body after her death when she does die.


The Internet, where all rumours are always true if only for a millisecond.

Nice.  Charles Manson stole it from the Beatles, we're stealing it back.

He's not as ugly as Ben Bernanke. How did Bernanke get his woman? Did he make a paper shirt of US Dollars?


Bernanke's wife - she's a real sizzler!:

Jesus would print loaves today, but wives?

Mr Pink's picture

Maybe he wouldn't need a gold shirt to get girls if he didn't look like the Indian Ned Flanders

Stoploss's picture

Yeah, but i thought the Indian was banging Ned's wife? 

Anyway, i didn't see a gold shirt.

Gavrikon's picture

I believe he was banging the delivery girl.  Or has Ned remarried and the new wife is having a affair with Apu?  It's so hard to keep up.

JustObserving's picture

The shirt cost $250,000, not $25,000. It weighs 3.2 kg and it took took a team of 15 goldsmiths two weeks to make working 16 hours a day creating and weaving the gold threads.  The Dailymail dropped a zero in  its calculation.

D00d wears that to an Indian club, he'd have to take a snorkle for fear of drowning in team-brown pussy.


Good for him, just thinkin outside 'da box on how to get inside 'da box.


Rock on little brown man with Freddy M. mustachio, rock 'da fsck on!


"bud-ding-ding!" [wobble wobble]  Actually got this from one of my staffers taking the piss outa his coworker "Tamil vs. Hindi" (everyone in India hates and makes just vicious fun of everyone else... it's very democratic).  Big mafia of Tamil here in Singapore, thought they were more part of the construction co-prosperity sphere, but they're making inroads into software now too.  /shrug  It's all Marsala to me.

I'm a big fan of The Walking Dead.

During a zombie apocalypse, gold is worthless.

Just thought you'd like to know.
