Another example on how quickly things can go to hell, especially when you are living in a populated area when the SHTF. One thing I've never understood though is how come gold keeps it's value even after societal collapse, doesn't make sense to me other than the hopes of better days where things go back to normal. I do understand the need of a trading currency but I find it weird that even a nations wealth is measured in gold, What's so special about gold?

Well good to know it was a scam before I went through reading,thanks. Reminds me of what Benjamin Franklin once said "Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see"

Well, the story is still a good read. It gave me some pointers on some things that I never even thought of. I just take it as half truth half made up. And I would never give any money to him
