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.

Didn't they declare gold buyers are terrorist?

I guess I only heard The Bernank tell the Borrower in Chief that.

I just showed the picture to my wife.  She said "Oh, God, what a dork!"

I then told her it was made of gold.  She said "You know, that's still too many chains, but he's not half bad looking."

Case closed.

Considering how much gold there appears to be at only $25,000 it must all be 10K - cheapskate.

Let's see the 24K gold jockstrap. Talk about a chick magnet!

I don't think getting married will be an issue, now that people know HE has it, will make him Ground Zero, for a hit, and steal.

Once the fiat currencies of the world meet their certain fate and inflate them selves to worthless infinity against reality this guy will be a prince among paupers and women will hold him up as an exemplar of male virility and beauty. He will be beating the bitches off with a mace while they try to beat off his golden nuggets.
