  • If the family dog’s name is Hyperinflation …you might be a gold bug.
  • If you have a poster of a shirtless Peter Schiff hanging over your bed…you might be a gold bug.
  • If you spent the summer up at the cabin storing your own urine for it’s nutrients…you might be a gold bug.
  • If every single stock in your brokerage account contains the word “mining” in it’s name…you might be a gold bug.
  • If you get your financial advice from the Glenn Beck show…you might be a gold bug.
  • If you start off many sentences with the phrase “Once gold breaks 1000,” …you might be a gold bug.
  • If your IRA jingles when it hits the floor…you might be a gold bug.

  • If the panic room you’ve just installed has it’s own panic room…you might be a gold bug.
