    They are making this assertion based on the price of shares. Therefore this Musk guy has shares, rather than actual money.

    Of course I do realize that the things in the world that have value are the things we put value in, and therefore you might say that these shares are, in effect, currency. However personally I would not see shares in the same light as money (such as the American dollar, the British pound, or the Japanese Yen).

    If he sells those shares then fair enough he will be the richest.

    And of course currencies can suddenly drop in value, just like shares.

    Only about an hour's drive from me where I live in N. Ireland, you can walk into a shop with 30 grand and walk out with a kilogram bar of gold. That's what I call securing your wealth. I don't trust banks with anything other than pocket money.

    That's about 63k here in USD.

    I still feel that gold is grossly inflated or silver is undervalued.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    You just reminded me that I want a snooker ball made of Tungsten. I would nonchalantly hand it to people and say, 'Would ya hold this for a second while I try find my keys?', then they will be like FUCK.

    An old former-friend of mine used to do that with a tub of liquid Mercury he stole from school.

    Ideally I would get Osmium but it costs a fortune. Tungsten is the densest material within reach of a normal person's budget.

    Have a load of tungsten. Highest metal point of any element and heavy.

    I've seen 50mm tungsten ( not carbide) in the past. Very deceptive in regards to volume vs. weight!

    Saw a grocery deli/ kitchen shut down because a teen stole mercury from Chemistry class and then spilled it in the food area
