Of Alchemy, Midas and other weird stuff...

If you're a watcher of the spot gold market, you know a lot of folks have made, and lost, a lot of money speculating on the commodity. Now, if you're holdings are considerable, might be a time to consider dumping and running!

A bacteria has been discovered that turns toxic chemicals into 24k gold!

"The details are a bit complicated, says Jesus Diaz at Gizmodo, but basically, "Cupriavidus metallidurans can eat toxins and poop out gold nuggets." I love it when scientists make things simple for us non-scientists.)

 There is a blip on the radar screen, though (isn't there usually?) "Although the Michigan State University experiment was successful, it could be "cost prohibitive to reproduce [this] experiment on a larger scale," says R&D Mag. So don't expect to grow your own gold at home anytime soon." So, maybe my "dumping and running" remark isn't so wise.
