Day 463: Gold is boring

Day 463:

Gold is boring.

There, I said it.

It makes a lousy metal for doing anything except looking at, and I have no need for jewelry.

Even the watch I made, which isn’t much of a watch, could probably work better in steel if I had the patience to work it.

I can’t understand how it got so valuable in the first place.

  1. It’s shiny, it doesn’t corrode, it’s easy to make coins out of, and once upon a time it hit a sweet spot of “rare enough to be valuable but common enough to be used as currency”.

    Now? Yeah, it’s jewelry.
