The other day I opined that someone was worth her weight in gold. And then I started wondering - how much IS that, exactly?
So here it is: Today's closing price for 1 ounce of gold is US$ 1,318.90.
16 ounces in a pound, therefore one pound of gold comes in at US$ 21,102.40.
If you weighed 100 pounds, and you were worth your weight in gold, you would be worth 2.1 million bucks.
