Just out of curiosity, when you "buy gold" do you actually get a chunk of yellow metal in the mail? Probably not, almost no one in the US does
I do, because I'm not an idiot. I get real gold at auction. You can buy paper gold if you want, but only if you're treating it as any other commodity. There is no safety aspect unless you have physical control. Besides, it seems like very large companies are performing fraction-reserve-like scams by selling more gold than they have.

If spacial ability in children is a predictor of their scientific creativity later in life, then if we could improve children's spacial abilities, this might produce more creative adults. The next step is to look for ways to do that, and then see if it worked.
Would a hyperlink suffice? Do search engine spiders parse robots.txt when they arrive at a page from an external link?
Yes they do, so no, linking to a Tumblr page would not get the Tumblr page indexed.
