    But if the platnium were to be mined anywhere other than the earth or on earth and it were to be at an extreme mass the value of it would decrease extremely as a matter of fact if one astraoid were to be mined it would give us humans so much platinum it would be treated like alluminum knives would be made out of it because platinum is great for a metal.

    What's Earth worth?
    Appearantly not much to a lot of people in America because they seem to not care about throwing their trash down....even when a trash can is within walking distance.
    & Law Enforcement in America rarely up holds laws concerning littering.
    Commercial trucks contribute to littering as well, & hardly anyone seems to care in this society.
    & the U.S. government is pushing for people to leave Earth & go to Mars.
    So how much is the Earth worth?.....To America?.....appearantly not that much!
    Sad & shameful...

    hey lets not rush aliens, perhaps they're trying to close a deal with the dhjdjhjkbdehjbbfkjhdh to decide whether to up interest rates dependant on the sell rates and thus need to figure out a price agreeable. perhaps, the aliens are busy with their own ventures or are heavy procrastinators...

    I mean seeing as there are possibly more than trillions of other earth-like planets out there, the chance of us being visited could be high and maybe we have been visited by aliens before and we just didn’t know it, there could be a lot the government or whoever is in charge, isn’t telling us.
