At the same time platinum itself would become so valuable it'd be worth stealing cars just to melt down their catalytic converters ~ which use platinum.
Then there's the Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) experiments that are dominated with platinum based processes. They would be wiped out of existence.
It might be worth looking into the identity of the folks peddling the platinum coin idea. Do they come from the high energy physics community? Or, are they perhaps from the LENR community seeking to make gazillions out of their metal stock on hand!
You mine 16 tons
What do you get?
Another day older
And deeper in debt...
and to think zerO’s ego dwarfs even that.
