First I heard about Silver Water from my mom. We used to have a bottle of water with a small silver spoon on the bottom. Once I asked her what’s for we need a silver spoon in the water, she told me that this little spoon will protect our family from any kind of disease. As I always believe my mother, I haven’t thought about it too serious until recently. Lets see is a Silver Water myth or reality?
So, when my mom said that silver water will protect us from disease, she basically meant that silver is a specific metals which can stop the growth of germs and microbes on contact. Silver and copper are best known in this regard and are often used in commercial applications. Among germicidal metals, however,silver is of greater importance because it is the only metal that is completely non toxic to the body. In fact, silver has been used since ancient times to not only keep stored water “sweet” and germ free, but also to speed the healing of wounds and minimize the formation of scar tissue. Also I even read an amazing story about a miracle effect of a silver water which helped to cure a bone infection. Check the article if you’re interested.
Just think about, silver is everywhere… we are eating off silver plates, storing our water and wine in silver vessels, drinking from silver cups and eating with silver utensils.
But if the main purpose of a still water is disinfection, what stops us of buying a pure water which is also have a wide list of a good recommendations? I guess it’s all up every person decision. Here the link to the silver water company where you can find more detailed information.

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.
Some people take really extreme with gold. It’s not necessarily a bad thing. Creative out-of-the-box thinking has made it possible for people to create beautiful gold masterpieces.
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.

“In the fortress which is in the Vale of Achor, forty cubits under the steps entering to the east: a money chest and it [sic] contents, of a weight of seventeen talents.” (First column of the Copper Dead Sea Scroll)
It may sound like one of Indiana Jones plots, but this is real. Found in 1952 in Cave 3 at Khirbet Qumran on the shores of the Dead Sea, Israel, the Copper Scroll is one of the few scrolls among the collection known as the Dead Sea Scrolls to be discovered by archaeologists in the place where it had been overlooked for decades and unread for 2000 years.
The Copper Scroll is made of copper instead of more fragile animal skins. Unlike the other scrolls, it is not a literary work, but the Copper Scroll is a sort of ancient treasure map that lists 64 underground hiding places around Israel that is believed to contain gold and silver treasure, as well as many coins and vessels. It is difficult to assess the value of what is described, since we are not sure what the weights in the scroll are actually equivalent to, but it was estimated in 1960 that the total would top $1,000,000 U.S. Today, the monetary value is close to $3 billion, but the historical value – is priceless.
None of these hoards have been recovered, possibly because the Romans pillaged Judaea during the first century A.D. According to various hypotheses, the treasure never actually existed, that the Copper Scroll is simply a work of fiction. Some believe the scrolls refer to Temple treasure, hidden for safekeeping before the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 C.E. Others believe the treasure belonged to the sect that lived at Qumran, a sect usually identified with the Essenes, a Jewish group mentioned in the work of the Jewish historian Josephus, who wrote in the 1st century C.E. However, these are just educated guesses. Who the treasure belonged to, and what happened to it, we may never know.
The script has the features which would result from someone writing – a series of random Hebrew and Greek letters – on the copper with a hammer and chisels. “It actually fits the glove perfectly for these people known as the Zealots, who were the priestly group, who were holding down the temple, who were keeping it from the Romans in the best way possible. Before they were massacred, they left things behind in caves here in Qumran”, said Stephen Pfann one of the editors of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Perhaps, as some have theorized, copper was used to better withstand the passage of time. The sheets of bronze are composed of about 99 percent copper and 1 percent tin (approximately 1.5% of the scrolls), which were then joined together.
At the time it was found, however, the document was rolled into two separate scrolls of heavily oxidized copper which was far too brittle to unroll. For five years scholars and experts discussed ways of opening the scroll. Finally, they decided to cut the scroll into sections from the outside using a small saw. Working very carefully they cut the scroll into 23 strips, each one curved into a half-cylinder. Before it was cut, one scholar thought he saw words for silver and gold and suggested that the scroll was a list of buried treasure.
First hand-drawn transcriptions of the Copper Scroll was dated 1960. A new official edition was published in 1962 by the original editor, Józef Milik, also with hand-drawn transcriptions, though the accompanying black-and-white photographs were “virtually illegible”. The scroll was re-photographed in 1988 with greater precision. From 1994 to 1996 extensive conservation efforts by Electricité de France (EDF) included evaluation of corrosion, photography, x-rays, cleaning, making a facsimile and a drawing of the letters.
Portrayed in novels, the Copper Scroll story hit the New York Times bestseller list by author Joel Rosenberg. He b
elieves the second scroll is still out there and it could be the key to the greatest archaeological prize in history. “The Key Scroll has never been found, nobody has any idea where it is.”, said Rosenberg. He adds, “What would be most dramatic is if in fact the treasures that are described by the Copper Scroll -and perhaps revealed more fully in the Key Scroll – are in fact from the second temple. Finding them would in fact be the most dramatic archeological discovery of all time.”. We shall see.

Discussions whether copper wire cable is better for headphones than silver wire cable have been on numerous forums all over the internet for the last decade.
Searchers for the perfect sound are truly believers that silver cables condemned as “brighter” than copper cables is a myth. According to them, if you were to connect a copper or a silver cable to an analyzer, you would find no difference in frequency response. Technology may be a great thing, but when it comes to measuring certain aspects of sound, frequency response curves are quite straightforward.
Others, however, could swear they definitely notice that silver is audibly brighter than copper. In this case, silver is the best conductor, when it comes to resistance. The resistance is determined by two major factors. The diameter (or gauge) of the wire and the material(s) used. The bigger the cross-sectional area and shorter the cable, the less resistance. Hence, silver cables are said to be the best conductor, hence better electrical conductivity and copper, the runner-up.
Since no difference has been detected between copper and silver cables, discussions go further and people question why bother getting silver cables due to their higher prices. In fact, several wires of thinner gauge copper (at the exact length needed) yield less resistance and come out a lot cheaper than a (too long) fancy wire treated to this and that purity (a purity that a lot of the time has no basis in metallurgy since it can’t be attained).
