And if that doesn’t happen, everybody gets a refund, right?
Not for pasta production at least. The reason for today’s pasta shapes is that they can be mass-produced very inexpensively with a simple extrude/cut/dry process. Adding a step where tiny grooves are etched into the dried pasta will raise the cost enough that this will always be just a novelty, not a bulk packaging savings for the cost-conscious masses. People on a budget will almost always buy the cheapest-to-produce foods.
You’d think Cowboys fans would be better at losing by now.
You’d have to buy larger quantities of silver for it to make sense as investment. The production and certification process adds too much overhead. I would not advise buying one-ounce bars if you’re not going to keep them a long time. Unless you’re buying wholesale, you’ll always pay a premium and sell at a loss. Even gold. The middlemen are not non-profits.
Yeah, but it's still not a $10-$30 spend like the others. And then I'd just want Palladium. Easier to focus on the lower end of the spectrum.
I thought I had it there a few hours ago, but when I came back it was gone.
Yeah, your penny should only cost a zinc.
Amazon. Just search for a metal name plus "1oz".
Just for fun, but now that you mention it, I have been playing a zombie apocalypse video game lately . . .
That would amaze no one more than me, if you can find a link. Cause that would be a real glitch-in-the-matrix moment.
No, I'm just too old to spend it on anything exciting. My daughter can sell it to pay for my funeral.
I can't seem to convince my daughter and her friends that these all weight the same. They insist the gold is heavier than the aluminum. Good talk about density vs weight.
I have been trying the past few hours to exchange it for real platinum, with no luck. I wonder if people know these awards can't be exchanged for actual metal.
Well, I couldn't. Maybe a lopsided hut.
I didn't buy it to sell it. Interesting that you think I wouldn't know that, though.
These are all pure. And I sort of enjoy polishing metal, as long as I don't have to do it for a living (like cruise ship hand rails).
If it tarnishes, it's not one of the metals that's investment-worthy anyway. One $26 silver bar isn't going to make me rich no matter how much I preserve the base. :-)
The gold (and platinum if I ever get it) won't tarnish appreciably. And I'll be dead before anyone cares.
If they ordered them online and displayed them in a glass case, I'd guess yes. But without pics, it's hard to say.
All but the titanium stood on edge just fine. Had to use a blob of putty for the titanium.
Yeah, I got the silver and gold to fondle and fidget. Shucked those cards with no regrets.
I'm not collecting for investment, just for curiosity. Other than silver and gold, the shipping costs are many many times the actual value. Sorta like baseball or pokemon cards, I suppose.
I'll just polish them if when they tarnish. Might build an airtight case once the collection is complete (within reason).
Working on it, but platinum is really expensive and I haven't found tungsten in bar form.
Sure. Can you send me your CC info so I can buy the shipping label? I'll get the address later.
I don't think I could find the back street boy I bought it from.
Some metals I just haven't found in bar/bullion form.
