    No cause is lost if there is but one fool left to fight for it.

    It would actually be funny to see him try to eat his gold, I can’t imagine that would be very tasty.

    How many bushels of beans can you buy for an ounce of gold?
    I’m getting a mixed metaphor vibe from this story; pirates, sure, but also Jack and the Beanstalk, old Twilight Zone episodes, and something about a dead goose.

    In the U.S. Treasury we trust, but verify.

    Bad Science, the gold would be just as tasty as freshly printed but totally worthless treasury notes. The gold would always be worth something in trade, unless Obama pulled a FDR, and made it illegal to own gold.
    The precious metals I’m investing it are lead and copper jacketed lead. I figure those will be quite useful pretty soon.

    Actually Ogrrre, the banknotes are not totally worthless. Just try mulching your food crops with them and with gold, and see which field yields the most produce.
