Sell energy buy physical sleep well.
It's easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got Obama beat. But the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile, when his shorts aren't too tight in the seat.

Honest question --
I understand how gold bar edges are rounded on 5 sides of the mould. What I do not understand is how bars edges are rounded on the last (top?) side. Looks like it would damage the mould. (maybe one mould per bar? maybe tooled when simi-hard?) I have this image of a bored employee grinding away the last few edges (gold dust flying everywhere.)
It's gold. If you want it could be hammered with ease.
Large bars are poured into cast Iron molds , there is a surface tansion between the liquid Gold and the mold that creates a rounded edge at the top of the pour. I just started smelting this year , I only wish I was pouring bars that big.
