I literally LOLed at the following last night:
Pole wisely asks (more or less); do you think our relationship is ready to move along to having a baby already?
She naively replies: yes, we'll focus on the baby and that will keep us from fighting and strengthen the relationship
I'm guessing 100% of parents laughed at that one as well!
I believe that gold buyer is essentially paying them a "deposit" on the gold. He then will melt it down and pay them the balance of whatever is left after the imputirities are melted (smelted?) out. Win-win, they get cash up front and the buyer doesn't have to worry about gold sellers owing him any money back if their gold is impure.
