Why do we love it so much?
It has only had a practical use just recently in our World, but has been popular since as far back as we historicaly know.
Maybe Alien's implanted a desire for Gold in our head's thousand's of year's ago.
That way we would mine it for them and stack it up nice and neat.
Then they return and just load it up.
Not sure why they would need it either.
What's the deal, why do we love gold so much?
