Er, what? Your color blind friend can't see color (in nature?) but can see it on an iPad 3?
They are a magical thing. I used to have herpes before I saw the iPad 3 display
I've never seen a single picture frame that looks like an iPad.
So you have never seen a picture frame in the shape of a rectangle that has either a black or a white border?
Were you out hunting a woolly mammoth when you fell into the icy water and only recently thawed yourself out?
As soon you get used to it, then you will work faster.
That is true. When my master gave me my first whipping, i didn't like it one bit. But after a while calluses formed and it was perfectly fine. In fact I now use the crack of the whip to help me keep a good steady pace while I'm working the fields.
You are injecting too much politics into this. Do you really think that Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh's audience have the economic power to cause a major commodity to rise to an all time high? For a major commodity like gold to go up in price some major players have to be getting in on the action. And in fact, China and India have been buying large amounts of gold.
And it makes sense why people are buying. There is a lot of uncertainty in the world economy right now. There are fears from austerity measures in Europe as well as debt/unemployment woes in the US. Gold makes a very nice hedge. If the fears are justified then there is no bubble. But if you are so sure that you know more than the market, feel free to short gold.
Inflation has not been the problem over the last few years
Considering that the FED's definition of inflation excludes food and energy prices, I tend to dismiss anyone that says inflation isn't that bad.
The gold standard would be a great thing for very few people. and I'd bet dollars to donuts that you aren't actually one of them
Despite its occasional ups and downs, gold is pretty good at keeping its purchasing power. The dollar is not. Inflation is a real killer for people on fixed incomes, so I fail to see why you think price stability is only good for the rich.
It's a more difficult case to make, but California ought to pass a law, saying, if you want to do business in this state, you need to pay our sales tax
I have a better idea. How about they keep their hands off the net before they make it as pathetic as the California public schools, roads, DMV, or anything else the California government controls
Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
