A visit to the world's largest gold market, in Dubai

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.


9261 blocks wouldn’t be fun to place though.


But how big is their slave market?


While in Toronto…


“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!
