Gold is the most useless thing in the world, except it's shiny and crows snatch it up.

Though Gold may seem useless at a glance it has more use than it's mere luster. Firstly it is a metal that lends itself to acting as a standardized bartering medium via coinage through it's malleability and scarcity. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly in the modern age; it is a valuable raw component in industrial and manufacturing applications.

In short saying that :
"Gold is Crow Food"
Is a bit like saying:
" Helium is only good for filling party balloons and making your voice go high pitched."

I look forward to hearing your rebuttal.

To a colorblind person, a piece of fecal matter could look like gold. It's still a turd.

"To a colorblind person, a piece of fecal matter could look like gold. It's still a turd." That is just a useless troll statement that does not disprove the usefulness of gold. You do know that gold is a great electrical conductor in the industrial field right? Much more than copper since it is very resistant against corrosion and that is just one example.

I don't know
I thought that Con actually had something good, but apparently he doesn't think so.

Gold is a great metal. It makes jewelry that doesn't break easily. And it's easy to fix, because it's malleable.

But that computer thing is good too, I just like this cuz I'm a woman.

Gold is used in electronics, industrial equipment and medicine.
The problem with people these days is they are dumb, but they think they are smart at the same time.

The intrinsic value of gold is not to be confused with the implicit value of ownership
