@K1lgore, it's an island in Japan. The island was originally used to test chemical weapons during ww2 and they used rabbits to test the weapons on. When the operations were abandoned some of the rabbits escaped and there are now hundreds of rabbits that live there. It's a tourist destination now. I only know this because I watched a documentary video about this island just last week lol on Funny Pics (Upvotes: 26)
Actually, as edible gold history is concerned there is no doubt according to recent studies that the first evidence of gold used as a food dates back to the second millennium BC in ancient Egypt. It was eaten because it was considered to be a sacred food by the Egyptians, for currying favour and being closer to the gods. Although it is not possible to know the exact date of golds first consumption, it is believed that since ancient times, far Eastern cultures and civilizations also commonly combined food and gold to draw the deity’s attention toward them. There is reasonable certainty that this is not just a legend but a real and widespread practice witnessed by Marco Polo a few centuries later and recorded in his manuscript Il Milione. on collapse (Upvotes: 21)

@sandguy, that's all well and good but the point I was making was that this person seems to think that eating gold is a recent phenomenon. It is in fact a very old practice. I wasn't making a commentary on the original posters erroneous correlation between gold and the value of the American dollar. on collapse (Upvotes: 3)
