Some Relevant Humor.

Now, if these folks know THIS LITTLE, then how could they possibly understand the Three E's?

Nevertheless, it's pretty funny.

BTW, I don't think the video I posted is humorous, I was just responding to this question.

   UHHH , Buy Land,plant wheat , grow chickens, etc.  Is it a trick question ?  7 cups of wheat, 1 cup of milk , t. salt , 1/4 lb. of butter, 1 T yeast =  approximately $.20  right now .   20 cents more if you want to put an egg in it .    Did I pass the test?

Yup, my sentiments exactly, Full Moon . . . It's just that some folks' accounts are so bloated that they can't buy enough of the above without drawing unwanted attention . . . Ya gotta feel sorry for those poor little rich folks . . . .  Such problems they have!  Oy!

Re: Some Relevant Humor.

Greg,

Interesting video. A point that struck me was the amount of effort spent on digging for gold seemed to exceed what it would take to grow your own food by gardening. And the next question is who is selling the food and pocketing the gold. Seems several things don't add up to me.

Certainly the able younger persons could divert water, cultivate crops and raise animals and in that scenario the elders could at least tend the crops or shoo away the birds. Maybe they have lost the indigenous skills for that or are being manipulated by a food supplier/gov't that wants to figure out a way to mine gold cheaply.  In any case I'm sure there are aspects of this problem that I am unaware of but something doesn't seem quite right.

But the plight of the population is a self evident truth. Things are tough for those folks. I hold no illusions that we do not face the same possibility if we do not learn and prepare for what seems headed our way.

Funny in a very sad way. (Kinda like the free Obama money from his stash is funny in a sad way) 

Nobody had any clue what this coin was worth. On the day the offer was made, anybody who took the guys offer would make a net profit somewhere in the range of $1050. If this dude approached me, I might want to have him stop by a coin shop to make sure it was indeed a real 1 oz gold coin (I'd be wondering why he would be willing to sell it for only $50) But I wouldn' t just blow him off.

I just wonder what he would've done if someone *had* taken him up on it.

It looked to me like it would take more energy to find the gold then you would get from the bread it would buy and they said .1 ounce of gold for a loaf of bread? That would be around $100 usd, pricey bread. I would gladly trade a loaf of breadthat cost me a dollar for $100 usd or .1 ounce of gold if that was the market price.

If you are hungry I don't think you can wait for the potato's to grow so I suppose looking for gold would be something to do in the meantime.

Gold isn't for spending when the SHTF. You use it as a hedge and cash it in after the SHTF and the economy stabilizes. Gold's job is simply to retain value.

What if the economy never stabilizes?Cry
