There’s no gold in them thar hills

Be the 1st to vote.

The final chapter in one of the biggest financial hoaxes in Canadian history.

Bre-X was the darling of the Toronto Stock Exchange after reporting finding a major gold deposit in Indonesia. But the Busang mine find was later revealed to be a fake, resulting in the company’s shares nose-diving and wiping out about $3 billion in investors’ money.…

Even @anounceofsaltperday wouldn’t like the salting of this mine in this hoax.

I believe real people lost real money in this one.

Variable vicsim count

likes this

It’s been 18 years – you’d think they’d get the vicsim count consistent by now.

A victim of the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11 was newly identified, the New York City Officer of Chief Medical Examiner, announced Friday. This victim was the 1,645th to be identified, part of a continuing mission to identify all 2,753 people that were reported missing from the tragedy. The man’s identity is being withheld at the request of his family. DNA testing of remains found in 2001 were used to identify him. About 40 percent of victims from the disaster, 1,108 remain unidentified.
