    The History Channel don't do much history anymore.
    MTV don't do much music anymore
    news channels do a lot less news an a lot more opinion.
    the cooking channels are all game shows.

    So goes life I suppose. if it's on the TV the purpose, much like a clown, is entertainment, and not so much education. but perhaps you learn something by watching the act, perhaps you don't. In the end all these 800 channels to watch are so they can sell advertisement space, what the content is isn't that important as long as it attracts viewers to watch the commercials.

    You can't eat gold and you can't take it with you. in the end when it's all said and done, there will be people trading an oz. of gold for a sandwich, and a sandwich maker refusing to take gold because, that sandwich is more valuable at that moment to him than the metal.

    As long as everyone is playing the game, and not changing the rules, everything is fine.

    I've tried desserts from bakeries with gold flakes on them. Now and then I wonder if someone can bake pastries topped with those gold flakes that many companies give away for free in the tiny vials. What else can you do with them?

    I sure wouldn't ingest it. Silver either; not inert enough.

    How could it be? It can't react with anything in the body, and gold leaf is too delicate to produce mechanical blockages.

    In honor of Columbus Day and old Italian proverb goes: at the end of the game the pawn and the king both go back in the box.

    Just had a thought about ingesting metals. Take some Special K (the cereal...) or other iron fortified cereal and put a couple of spoonfuls in a glass of water and let it sit overnight. Now, stir it up, put a strong magnet under the glass and pour out the contents to see the iron they fortify it with!!!

    I've heard that many times, but never tried it. It always seemed preposterous that they'd use metal instead of ferrous sulfate or something similar.

    Actually not preposterous at all. Did you ever taste any iron salts...bletch :vomit::vomit::vomit: horrible taste, and the HCl in your stomach will make the metal into iron chlorides.

    Doctor says I’m somewhat anemic and has put me on an iron supplement. You suppose a magnet will stick to my head in about a week?
