    Post article: "Scientists coax bacteria to produce pure gold nuggets"

    http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/reali...dbacteria.html
    The gold produced using this method is also as pure as it gets: 99.9 percent pure. But is lab-produced gold as valuable as natural gold? Kashefi and Brown have yet to test the market on that, but they suspect the method they use in the lab is similar to how many gold nuggets get produced in nature. After all, both gold chloride and Cupriavidus metallidurans occur naturally. All it takes is for the two of them to naturally run into each other.

    Given that the price of gold is currently through the roof, you might already have gotten the idea to begin duplicating this process in your garage. But before you get that twinkle in your eye, keep in mind that Kashefi and Brown have already crunched the numbers, and they attest that the experiment is not cost-effective enough to turn a worthy profit.

    I can see us all now.

    Giants in the clouds, waiting for our bacteria to poop golden nuggets.

    Must be some pretty big bacteria if they can crap out a whole nugget.

    I am Zippy and I approve of this message. But you don't have to.

    Reminds me of a brilliant Season 2 episode of The Twilight Zone, "The Rip Van Winkle Caper."

    The wife vaguely recalls that gold had indeed been valuable at some time in the distant past. The husband replies, "Sure, about a hundred years or so ago, before they found a way of manufacturing it," and tosses the gold bar away.

    Pssh, forget turning a profit, the dollar and economy will take care of that...
    The kids they dance and shake their bones,
    While the politicians are throwing stones,
    And it's all too clear we're on our own,
    Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down...

    That was a good one. I don't see a two minute version of it but here is a two minute version of the, "The Night of the Meek in less than 2 minutes"
