    August 19, 2004: AAPL $15 per share.
    August 19, 2004: Silver $6.82 per ounce.
    August 19, 2004: Gold $406 per ounce.

    January 5, 2011: AAPL $609 per share = +2126% in 76.5 months.
    January 5, 2011: Silver $29.40 per ounce = +331% in 76.5 months.
    January 5, 2011: Gold $1380 per ounce = +240% in 76.5 months.

    How come no one is screaming about there being a AAPL bubble?

    Unhappy Only to the Zionists.

    For me, my tiny portion of the silver market is currently worth more than FB and Myspace combined.

    Logically and fundamentally both Google and Apple should have been short not long plays.

    ahem.....YOU CAN'T HAVE FACEBOOK WITHOUT SILVER!!!

    That should answer you as to what is more valuable.
    Take silver out of the societal loop and you are left with horse-n-buggy -- NO cars, NO ianything, NO spacehsips, NO teevee, NO cell phone, NO computers, NO batteries, NO etc. etc. etc., and ESPECIALLY NO FACEBOOK!

    Five hundred million people FAIL to realize they NEED and USE silver every day for their facebook fix.

    Some Facebook stats:

    1. More than 500 million active users
    Thus, $50B/500M = each "user"/addict is worth ~$100. How cheap do you feel now?
    Highly probable the majority of users have less than $100 of silver.

    2. Average user has 130 friends
    But far less than 130 ounces of silver.
    p.s. - NOBODY has 130 friends in REAL life...not even the Rog! Silly paper tigers...

    3. People spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook
    700B minutes/500M users = 1,400 minutes (~24 hours) per user per month.

    4. About 70% of Facebook users are outside the United States
    Ah! The REAL kicker!
    $50B*0.7 = $35 billion of Facebook "value" is held in foreign hands!

    500M*0.7 = 150 million US Facebook addicts.
    50% of mcmericans are Facebook users.

    1% of mcmericans own physical silver.

    30 million ASEs minted in 2010; 1 ounce for every 3 users... think any of them bought any?


    A single valuation (by a fraudulent party) may put Facebook well above and beyond the silver market, but for something COMPLETELY DEPENDENT on silver...it, and it's addicts, have none.

    For the Apocalyptics. Think of how gleeful you'll be when we are reduced to stone knives and bearskins, the computers are all turned off, and every penny that the 'fools' invested in Facebook goes up in smoke.

    So much wrong with that sentence.

    "Connecting" online is NOT "real people" -- it's still sitting in front of your computer staring at the screen.
    It's akin to saying you hung out with Jerry and Cosmo for a whole weekend just because you watched a Seinfeld marathon on teevee.

    I guess that's "fun and exciting" to all those who care to drown in the illusion of well-being and prosperity instead of going out into the real world and facing the shitty mess of truth. And connecting face-to-face with real live human beings.

    Straight from the facebook factsheet:

    Funding
    Round one: $500,000 from Peter Thiel, Summer 2004; Round two: $12.7 million from Accel Partners, April 2005; Round three: $27.5 million from Greylock Partners leading the round, Meritech Capital Partners participating, and Accel Partners and Peter Thiel increasing their investment in the company.

    Total funding = $40.7 million

    A pittance to loose in today's billion-trillion dollar world.


    p.s. -- Matt, the root definition of the word "apocalypse" is "a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception". What is does NOT mean is 'the end of the world'. Perhaps the destructive word you were seeking was "Armageddonists". Just sayin'.
    Beside that, I would say we are oscillating on the brink of apocalypse (of sorts).

    No one was criticising the "inventor" of facebook or feeling envious of the person, you are just adding confusion where none exists.

    As to what provides the greater service to mankind, silver or facebook, only an absolute moron, lost in a virtual world, that can't differentiate fact from fiction, truth from falsity, perfection from inanity, would claim facebook provides a greater benefit to the world.

    Futhermore, it is clear that such a person is beyond reason.

    Facebook is a trend that is temporary and impermanent. Llike investing in tulips, there is zero potential for preserving wealth over the long term. That's not to say one can not gamble on the stupidity of others wanting to buy tulips, but like any ponzi scheme, it all collapses after the last willing gambler is tapped.

    But not to worry, with GoldmanSachs buying in, it is very easy to imagine Facebook being a recipient of QE3 as the crumbling of the global casino accelerates and the cronyism of the kleptocrats preserve the paper profits of the major investors.
