Gold. It just a rock colored yellow and shiny. I don't get it why human in the past put a value on it. Atleast Diamond can be use as material due it being very strong.
Gold is a rock? Itís a metal my ignorant friend, one that was valued because it was found in its natural state, no refining needed. It was highly ductile, highly malleable and could be cold worked into beautiful objects, the ancient Celtic torcs being a good example. It did not tarnish either unlike copper or iron.
And itís still a useful metal today, not just for jewelry.
Gold is a rock? Not a smart thing to say with a metallurgist around.
Beauty is not utility. I still don't get why it has value.
Gold is, as BBD said, a very useful metal. A lot of electronics have important components made of gold, for example. Gold, like anything else, does not have objective, intrinsic value, but it's altogether wrong to say that it's worth what it is for no good reason.
Yes I admit gold quite useful in modern day. What I am argue about is the ancient people value. Then again, we might not know other gold usefulness if ancient people not worship gold like we worship money today. So I yield in this argument.
Try running your smartphone without it. Good grief some people have no idea how the modern world works.
I explained why, ease of extraction, ease of working, didnít corrode and was pretty. And yes we would know its usefulness today.
I really hope that neither of you are thinking of a career in engineering.

Itís Harvey Milk Day! For those that do not know, Harvey Milk was the first openly gay politician in California. Here in TWP we support the LGBTQ+ community and have a few members who are part of that group. In the coming month we will have loads of activities and events to raise awareness and support the LGBTQ+ community for Pride Month so stay tuned for whatís to come for that.

As May Madness pushes ahead time for another weird question:
QUESTION OF THE NOW: If you were transported 400 years into the past (1622 CE) with no clothes or anything else, how would you prove that you were from the future?
Frost in any place that isn't cold all year. I live in the American South so when a big rain storm came through, which is pretty usual, it was fine until it got really cold and all the water froze. This made pretty much every tree branch in the city snap from all the weight and because we're stupid and have our power lines strung on vulnerable poles across the entire city, 99% of the entire city was without power for week. I can get why frost exists up north in say Canada, but in the South, why must it exist.
Уважаемый Зоран! По вашим знаниям понятно, что вы мало понимаете о природе! Я не хочу вас расстраивать, но мороз никак не убрать. Климат на разных частях света тоже разный, как например, на юге жара, а на севере холод! Если у вас будут вопросы, обращайтесь!
