One of the (many) ongoing debates over at ZeroHedge.com concerns the ability – or inability – to take physical possession of the precious metals in which folks have invested. Since gold has become expensive and scarce, many are looking to silver as their second choice. There is a big debate over “paper” silver versus physical silver and one’s ability to get one’s grimy hands on it.
I’ve never understood the human fascination with so-called precious metals. I say you can’t eat silver or gold or any precious metal for that matter.
I’ve got no use for silver, so instead I’m putting my money into rice, flour and other things you can actually eat. In the future, if I need gold or silver for something, I’ll simply take it from the bloating corpses that will be laying everywhere about.
