Gold and the Battle of Jutland (GLD)

"There's something wrong with our bloody ships today, Chatfield"

The words of Admiral David Beatty to his flag captain after HMS Queen Mary blew up.
2200 of his sailors disintegrated. Idiot.
He was, of course, promoted, appointed First Sea Lord and granted an Earldom.

16:00 hrs-16:05 hrs, Indefatigable explodes leaving two survivors.
16:25 hrs, Queen Mary disintegrates, nine survive.

13:34 hrs, gold down $37.10, not quite the tragedy it might feel like my buggie friends.

I'm going to start paying attention to the shiny stuff again.
