Copper Is Red Hot! (Musical Tribute)

Copper Is Red Hot!

I think the photos say it all. Enjoy! Get your .999 fine copper bullion bars before the next person buys them all up.

Down in the badlands she was savin' the best for last
It only hurts when I laugh
Gone too fast..

This is also a tribute to those who find actual value in pennies. You can buy them at a discount and since they are money, they even offer some deflation protection. The latter might just come in handy someday. As an added bonus, some of them might even be collectible if you take the time to look. With unemployment so high, what's the harm?

Copper is a great investment if you buy it in coin sized legal tender form. - Mr Slippery

I certainly can't argue with that logic. Seriously.

CNBC had a poll today. It was a bubble topic. They wanted to know what we thought would fall next.

1. Stocks
2. Bonds
3. Farmland
4. Social Media

Commodities must be safe. See! Didn't even make the list.

Oh, I deserve this ;)

Momentary immortality on the Illusion of Prosperity.

Love the Chili Peppers, too! And all the bands they pretend to be in this video.

My favorite Chili Peppers song is The Zephyr Song. Maybe the best song, ever.

Mr Slippery,

Dani California was one of my favorites from Rock Band. Very fun to play on a fake guitar (illusion of guitar mastery) with no actual strings. :)

Dani California's "papa was a copper"!

And then there's this from the movie "The Public Enemy":

"you'll never take me alive copper" - James Cagney as Tom Powers

Not sure what any of it means, but maybe there's a connection with copper as an investment. Maybe not.

"Cop Land" is the only investment that makes sense to me, because they just aren't making any more of it. What you see is what you get for $10. There is a risk that I'm thinking inside the box office but it was showing up on all my screens in the past. Aisle project it forward and see what shows. Was it a Blockbuster? I think they went bankrupt!

I'm thinking a leveraged investment in apple carts looks like a sure thing. It's obvious that the Fed won't let anything upset the apple cart.

I'm picturing Apple iPi.

It can hold a Nearly Infinite™ number of digits for pi.* That means it may also hold the price of a loaf of bread someday (to the very last penny). This makes it a great device for hyperinflationists.

Don't forget to buy the Apple iPi when it first comes out. Discounting hedonics and historical performance, these tech gadgets only seem to get more expensive over time.

* Nearly Infinite™ is a marketing term and in no way implies that the product can hold even 1/100th of infinity.
