I just hate the idea of investing in gold. What productive activity does
it create? Digging metal out of the ground. I'd rather invest in
companies trying to do useful things and maybe even improve our lives.
And investing in bitcoins is even worse -- it just serves to motivate
people to waste electricity and create CO2 for no good reason. At least
gold has its uses.
