    never heed early warnings to spend less, when in the mood to spend money will spend regardless? when 1 2 spend people saying otherwise are out of their minds?

    when investing life savings on a product, make sure bring something substantial home to show.

    I already read sometime back there are already a number of cases in Europe and the States where people who can afford to buy gold, they would fashion the into picture frames and other furnishing and then spray them with any color or finishing that will not draw attention to the fact that it is actually real gold. They rather keep the gold with them in their home then a vault heheh... In times of trouble they have access to it faster then to go to a bank vault to retrieve it.

    thatz if the banks have enough gold in the first place, if everybody went to retrieve but bank say out of stock how?

    actually items made of gold is good idea (ur bicycle...), particularly electronic gadgets. gold is good electrical conductor somemore.
