MHmmmmz.....Gold can be hard to come by. And that's not really it. What's truly creepy is this:
1) There are items on Gaia that are put on the market for 10,000,000 gold.
2) You can purchase 2,000 with $1.00 USD.
3) These items, small graphics on the computer screen cost $5,000.00 USD.
_______ x 10,000,000 gold = $5,000 USD
4) You can buy a car with this. I've personally lived six months on my own on this, including all bills, new furniture, food, etc. A trip to Cancun from where I live here in the USA only costs $500 for four days/ nights, meals, drinks, and air fare. With $5,000 I could stay there for 40 days/ nights.
