You know, I'm actually quite puzzled as to your refusal to believe something like this could happen. I'm actually wondering why you disbeleive this story so much. My immediate thoughts are, you have a sense of 'that would never happen', but, you see, that is flawed thinking, because your statement is more of a 'guess', versus actual knowledge. You see, you were not in the government loop, when this occurred. You did not issue the permit, nor were you involved in the information about the transport.... You, in other words, you are basically just 'guessing' that this would never occur. Sure it sound unreasonable. It's the same with me... I, PERSOALLY, WOULD HAVE NEVER beveived it either... But, I understand that I 'could' be wrong. But you assert yourself as if you know the 'facts'. So, I'll give you this... If you were to admit that you are 'unsure' if this would happen, I would respect you for saying this.

I deal in reality
Attachment 647432Mike, It's the unlikely situation that a large government shippment of gold would be making stops along the way while delivering it.
Did you actually see the gold? There is a chance that your boss or the driver were pulling a fast one over on you.
Now as far as government clearance, NSA requires a lie detector test every 6 mo. to keep clearance. I know, I was in there a few times.

I didn't see it, but my boss did. Again, my boss is a stand up guy. This story is from him, and he, knowing him as I do, would have no reason to fib. So, I stand firm. It really did happen.

1. Son figure out how many Lbs Avdipoius of AU is in 3.2 Billion dollars at $1500.00 an ounce. And yes for those in the know this is a loaded question and so is the last one!
2. Next figure out What the Volumn in Cubic Ft would be for a BAR of AU that weights 1000 lbs.
3. and last ask yourself am I so damnn Stupid to beleive What I just tried to pass off as T-R-U-T-H to a bunch of OLD Treasure Hunters.
If yu answered yes to the last question then you need to RTFM (Karl's THM #6 & 7) Then come back and Apolagize to the rest of us for Insulting Our Intellegence and Years of Legit research.
Oh just for SH&Giggler Answer this; "Which weighs the most a pound of Feathers or a pound of AU?"

Well you have had 7 days to figure it out and haven't so here is the answer!!!
A Pound of Feathers!!!!!
and here is the reason why.
the system of weights in British and U.S. use for goods other than gems, precious metals, and drugs:
27.34375 grains = 1 dram;
16 drams = 1 ounce;
16 ounces = 1 pound;
112 pounds (Brit.) or 100 pounds (U.S.) = 1 hundredweight;
20 hundredweight = 1 ton.
The (avoirdupois) pound contains 7000 grains. Abbreviation: av.; avdp.; avoir.
a system of weights in use for precious metals and gems
(formerly also for bread, grain, etc.):
24 grains = 1 pennyweight (1.555 grams);
20 pennyweights = 1 ounce (31.103 grams);
12 ounces = 1 pound (0.373 kilogram).
The grain, ounce, and pound are the same as in apothecaries' weight, the grain alone being the same as in avoirdupois weight. The troy pound is no longer a standard weight in Great Britain.
My Quote "The troy pound contains 5760 grains."
This was for your edification and ludification.

Well, to take it back to the original post.... 3.2 billion in gold at $1500 an ounce would be 213,333 troy ounces of gold. That would fill a volume of 12.15 cubic FEET of space and would weigh 14,628 pounds by it's self.
There is no way that picture is what it was claimed to be.
