Although no country in the world has a gold standard, gold is still needed for the economy, especially now in the middle of the pandemic.
Somebody stole a very pricey potty last year from the restroom of a palace in England. But the police still don’t know who did it and have been trying to find out ever since.
“The toilet is still missing,” a Thames Valley Police spokesman confirmed to USA TODAY Aug. 21.
Since going missing last September, the toilet’s value has boomed to around $5 million, up by about one-third, all because it was made of something that has seduced mankind for centuries and recently surged to more than $2,000 per ounce for the first time ever.
