Also awesome is the fact that, according to the chart that flashes past, the US has 8,133.5 tons of gold in reserve.  At the current price (as of this writing) of $1,709.60 per ounce, that’s almost $478 billion in bling just steady chillin’ in vaults.  Maybe the plot of Die Hard 3 wasn’t so far-fetched after all.
