My understanding is that gold has been observed to be produced in trace amounts (a few thousand atoms at a time) and very high cost in a linear accelerator. This puts the routine production of gold in fantasyland for anyone alive today, and probably forever (mystical "technology singularity" aside).

I think worrying about this is equivalent to those who worry about mining asteroids when currently the US cannot even put a satellite into orbit.

Statements like this should be banned. Seriously?
