    This is actually an interesting question if you step back and take a big picture look at the world. The actual cost for the logistical effort in dollar terms is not really what's interesting. What is interesting is the context of the question where whatever the number is doesn't really matter. Dollar terms may not mean much when the next systemic financial crisis hits. Every major financial institution around the world has been warning for over a year now that there isn't sufficient resilience in the system to handle it. There are plenty of indications that gold will have a large role to play when TSHTF. "Money is gold -- and nothing else."

    Story in OP happened in late January. They reference ABC13 as the source for the story, but ABC13 doesn't mention anywhere that the homeowner used an AK47. Where is that detail coming from?

    I find it interesting that they feel the need to pay off lots of individual voters instead of paying off a few of the folks in the chain of custody who handle the votes to lose some boxes of (real) votes and replace them with boxes of fraudulent votes. Does India use a voting mechanism that is auditable to prevent that sort of fraud?

    For your web browsing, you can do a similar thing with Firefox + NoScript (denying Google Analytics, Google ads, Doubleclick etc) without having to block 1 billion IP addresses in a specially configured VPN. I get why they did it for the experiment, but this works easily enough for Joe Sixpack. I've been doing this for years.

    I tried to follow this very confusing story over here: Best as I understand it, the original Basel III plan did propose to move gold to tier I with zero risk (equivalent to government bonds as a bank asset). This was confirmed by the FDIC in June 2012 (post #14 in link above). In August 2013, I learned that the BIS had changed the Basel III plan (post #38 in link above) with respect to gold. A lot of the reporting on this issue is confusing as it seems a lot of reports - even ones published today - are discussing the gold moving to tier 1 status and that hasn't been true for years. I don't think a lot of peeps on the internets are digging to the source material (BIS) before reporting on this.
