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.

If anyone has to go that far to get a woman they are going to get the wrong one.

A good friend of mine once told me 'I've never paid for sex in my life but it's cost me a fortune getting it for free!"

Brahmins step aside, there's a new Top Caste in town!

Since we're on the subject of Indians and gold, it seems somewhat deflating to think that a land that has long cherished gold and may always have had more of it than any other nation has a history replete with wave after wave of invasion and colonization, and even today has a population where less than a quarter of them has access to proper and sanitary plumbing.  What good did it do them?  Possession alone bestows on its holder nothing, since in and of itself the metal has limited value.  Datta's a Phuge-in' shame.

Ah, the post hoc ergo propter hoc logical fallacy --- "If following this, then because of this" --- one of the lesser-used specious arguments made by the idiotic anti-gold crowd, but still a standby when desiring to make a cheap and disingenuous shot against gold owners.

I'm almost surprised that you did not also trot out the "You can't eat it", "It earns no interest", and "It's too heavy" arguments against gold as well.  Oh well, there's always next time.

Is it wrong for a man to desire another man to remove his shirt?  ($25k gold at or above spot should be < 1 lb.:  light enough to liberate.)  I think not counselor.

Of course it's not wrong. Remember, it's a funny funny world -- it takes all kinds of people, and we've got all kinds of people. Did you notice the sleavies?

The premium probably cost him a shirt (equivalent of the raw materials used for the shirt assembled).

You'd need a shirt like this to get the attention of a majority of American women:

One douchebag doesn't alter the status of a barbarous relic!

This is like when Jay-Z dumped dollars for Euros in his videos and then the whole eurozone imploded.

Yes, gold is more than just wealth preservation. The report leaked from Buba confirms it too.

I can just imagine how sexy he looks to the ladies squatting in the middle of the yard in his gold shirt taking a big nasty steaming shit and then wiping his ass with his fingers.  He'll also be the toast of the town at the ceremony where he's throwing his dead mother into the Ganges.

Fabulous, he should be on the cover of the Indian Vogue or preparing to debute on India's Got Talent.

At least we now all know who "bitchez" is - and it seems he's taken the advice finally.
