The Bearded Man has always had a fascination with finding the root of stuff – with getting to the bottom of things and finding out the truth. He’s been around long enough that he’s actually witnessed the birth of our modern form of currency. He’s seen the things people value change over the centuries. From food stuffs, to various trinkets, to gold, to real estate, and of course, now, to this really bizarre thing we call money. While he will never fully understand how a bank can only have 10% of the money it’s supposed to, and how only 10% of the world’s currency is even in MONEY form now (the rest just digital numbers…), the one thing he could understand back in the Aztec times was the power of gold. In short, he’s just always liked it. It’s shiny. So sure, these days, he could go trying to get gold bars from Fort Knox, but that seemed like an extra step. “Didn’t this stuff just come from the ground??” He asked himself. So with that idea in his head, he struck out with a pickaxe and shovel as it were, and set out to find gold in the ground. His journey brought him to South America, where he spent the better part of a decade as a madman, his beard growing longer and more insane by the day. Everyone said he had lost his mind. But then, we all know how this story ends don’t we? I mean, you don’t fly around in private jets and helicopters all day because you *didn’t* find gold, right!?
