All That Glistens Is Not GLD

Gold has lost it high status as the world's alternate currency.

This was confirmed to me when the weekend repair guy came to fix the A/C and gave me a "hot tip" to buy gold. I've even noticed fewer ads on TV featuring a well-coiffed lady with a British accent, peddling gold-plated wooden Nickels (with .003 micrograms of "real gold"). Perhaps a dentist could tell you how much .003 micrograms of real gold is.
