HA!  My own colleague fails to acknowledge that spikecoins are as good as
gold!  Forget BillKoins, those things are suspicious indeed.

Speaking of good as gold, the irony seems to be lost on the masses when we
hear all the ads on the radio trying to sell us gold and silver.  They
explain why gold and silver are such a great deal.  And oh by the way, the
advertiser is putting out a significant amount of gold to convince the
public that they should give her their paper currency in exchange for the
gold already owned by the person who is spending gold, trying to convince
you that gold is better than currency.  It's such a funny meta-gag that I
can scarcely think of it without laughing.
