God has a sense of humour, says AngloGold CEO

May 23, 2007

God had a sense of humour in putting gold reserves in risky places like the Democratic Republic of Congo or Russia, AngloGold CEO Bobby Godsell told Reuters journalists in London. “We go there because God has got a sense of humour. He puts gold in difficult places — not places like Switzerland or Singapore. Do remember that gold is a precious metal because it’s scarce. This is one of the reasons it’s never been a major monetary instrument,” Godsell said.

I guess, using that logic, that God wanted North Korea to have nukes. He gave them the 5th largest uranium deposits on Earth.
