Dubai garage sales are shiny.

Always love the factoid that all of the gold ever mined ~187,000 tons, would build a cube 21 meters on a side.

Or 21 blocks in Minecraft.


#5

9261 blocks wouldn’t be fun to place though.


#6

But how big is their slave market?


#7

While in Toronto…


#8

“Hello, Steven Soderbergh? Got your ‘Ocean’s 14’ script right here…”

So these Dubai guys have just a little over 0.005% of all the gold ever mined in the history of our planet? Lame!
