I’m feeling kind of nostalgic today, so that brings me to today’s topic: metal detectors. When I was a kid I was always searching for a Get Rick Quick scheme. So, naturally, I became obsessed with metal detectors and eventually bought one. I think you have to be a total nerd to buy a metal detector, but there you have it. I never found anything of value with it and I ended up concluding that it was a waste of time. Except a few days ago, some guy actually found gold treasure. Terry Herbert, 55, an unemployed guy, was in a farmer’s field in Staffordshire, England, with his metal detector when he found a bunch of items likely dating back to the 7th century and worth over $1 million. But listen, friends, if you’re unemployed, don’t invest in a metal detector. Herbert spent 18 years metal-detecting and finding nothing of interest. This was a once-in-a-century kind of find.
