Gold bars fell from the sky. Don't you wish it happens to you?

A "gold rush" started among residents in eastern Siberia after dozens of gold bars fell out of a cargo plane as it was taking off, according to Russian media.

He he he. As long as a gold bar does not land on my head, I would be OK.
This tells me people are capitalists by nature, and they all want to get rich.

Nope. Capitalists want to get rich by creating products and services people voluntarily buy. People who are composed of greed and sloth want "gold bricks from the sky," lottery jackpots and so on.

Thrill of the chase, man.

I imagine there is a nice bullet for anyone attempting to steal any of these.

Yeah, my father lived in Belize for years on this island: https://www.hatchetcaye.com .

Drug runners played a daily cat/mouse game w law enforcement along the coastline there. If a police helicopter was chasing them they'd dump their coke into the ocean. The packages would inflate on a timer and float to shore. The locals learned to obediently collect them and wait for the druglords to come collect the packages in exchange for fistfuls of hundred dollar bills. The choice was $200 or a bullet in the head. Easy choice.

Putin won't lose his gold bars, haha.

That's pretty clever.
