gold-toilet-paper

If only I had a lot of gold, I would have a bathroom of gold and every day I would use golden toilet paper to wipe my tush. Come on, who really wants to use gold that way? Well apparently there are people who do, because some companies manufacture gold bathrooms and gold toilet paper. People can purchase 22-carat gold toilet paper rolls with US 1.4 million in Dubai. These are not the only weird instances of using gold. The expensive material has made a lot of people crazy.

The list of unusual gold products is long. Vibrators, iPhones. MacBooks, Legos, Coffee makers, Christmas Trees and so on. There are even golden Porches and Mercedes cars. A golden iPhone 5 is worth of seven normal iPhone 5s.

Even more interesting is that they even make edible objects out of gold. There are gold cheese, ice cream, chocolate and mineral water with gold chips. Do some people actually have so much gold that they can afford to eat it? See the list of original articles to find out more of bizarre gold objects.

In order to find that much gold or even silver, you need a professional rock crushing tool for separating commercially valuable minerals from ores and a vibrating screen from locating them from the crushed rocks.
