Potential Shoe Shine Moments?


Recommended Posts

In the run up to Christmas there was an episode of the Armstrong and Miller sketch show, and during a regular piece in which a character has advisers giving recommendations as they walk through corridors, they were given the advice "You can't go wrong with (gold) bullion".

Then in the latest Peep Show, Mark had bought his girlfriend some Gold, prompting a post-apocalyptic TFH style conversation.

With this sort of discussion getting into popular culture are we seeing evidence that these ideas are more widespread than expected, or is just the start of a meme, that may help to kick off phase three?

I saw a little while ago an episode of Dad's Army, which I had never seen before, with the storyline of Private Fraser having a tin box of British sovereigns and his complete mistrust of the banking system.

Episode 078, The Miser's Hoard, Recorded - 1977-06-24, First Broadcast 1977-10-23 Frazer, distrustful of banks, keeps his savings in the form of gold sovereigns - but Mainwaring believes his hoard would be better in Mainwaring's bank. Rumours spread about the savings, and when Frazer is seen carrying a box to the graveyard, the platoon follow.

The bull run continued for another 2 1/2years. The mess we are now in is far, far more serious than the 1970's.

And after the peak in gold.

Great examples, thanks.
