August 7, 2020 by Michael Maharrey 0 3

We all desire gold? We like gold things.

Athletes contend for the gold medal. We provide our liked ones gold fashion jewelry. When something is excellent, we state it’s the gold standard.

But there have actually been some quite atrocious things made with gold. Here are my top-five awful usages for gold.

1. Gold poop tablets

I pointed out these in a current Fun on Friday when I noted odd usages for gold Making tablets so individuals can poop gold is not just odd, it’s quite horrible.

Designer Ken Courtney and artist Tobias Wong produced 24 K, swallowable gold tablets. This was back in2005 The pills were filled with gold leaf and cost $425 at the time.

2. Poison Rings

When I consider it, this should most likely be top– given that this is particularly for killing individuals. This actually dates back to ancient cultures. Individuals made big gold rings with surprise compartments that could conceal poison liquid or powder within. When the victim wasn’t looking, the slick assassin could pop open the ring and quickly dump the poison into food or beverage.

3. Golden Weapons

This supports toxin rings. As you may have noticed, I’m not big on killing individuals. But you understand who is big on killing individuals? Drug cartels. And what better way to eliminate somebody than with a gold weapon. Pictures taken by drug cartels have distributed on social media of gold-plated firearms. They may not be practical for real killing, however they do market the fact that in some cases crime carries out in truth pay. Yes– drug cartels are apparently marketing savvy.

4. Gold Grills

This might upset some individuals, however most likely very few individuals reading the SchiffGold site– so I’m going to choose it. I’m not talking about a location to cook your meat. I’m discussing covers for your teeth. I do not understand that it is so much today, but for a while, this was a big fashion thing. I understand this refers taste, but if you ask me, covering your teeth with gold is just– dreadful.

5. Gold Coffee

Individuals put gold on all kinds of food. It’s not my thing, however I get the point. It creates a sense of luxury that a lot of individuals take pleasure in. gold coffee? That goes too far. Why? because coffee is nasty. Putting gold in it does not fix that issue. No need for you coffee lovers to email me. You’re just wrong.

So, there you have it– five dreadful uses for gold. I’m simply going to adhere to conventional gold jewelry– and some bars and coins to protect my wealth.
