Why invest in Gold...

    ...when you can invest in blue fin tuna instead!

    An endangered bluefin tuna was caught last and weighed in at 232-kilograms. This single tuna sold for an all-time high of $175,000 to two Japanese restauranteurs—60 percent higher than last year's record. That breaks down to $21.38 an ounce—almost three dollars more per ounce than the cost of silver. (And by the time it reaches the dining table as sushi, it will be more like the cost of gold.)

    I wouldn't worry about bluefin tuna being on the menu for very long, or anywhere else for that matter.

    boy, I don't get rich folk.
    Is it a money race to eat it out of existance or what?

    Edit: But , perhaps that's one reason people buy gold, no ones eating it.

    Gold leaf was, and still is, considered a delicacy in many cultures. In Japan, one can buy drinks with gold messages floating on top. Begs the question of whether or not all the gold in sewage in Japan comes from industrial waste.

    I puzzled as to what this has to do with Earth Science, i.e. geology. Doesn't this topic have more to do with economics and human behavior?
