    What, no printer ink?


    What about gas?? It may not be as expensive per gram, but throw in my money, an arm and leg and the fact that it's got a grip on my balls would make it more expensive.

    Oh well, I guess my dead brain cells did'nt make the cut this time.

    We pay AU$300 a gram of coke in Australia. That's unfortunately the standard price so maybe we should get some tug boats and drag south America a bit closer!!

    #16 How do you price Antimatter? There's only ever been a few micrograms of antiprotons in existence. Unless they're pricing it based on the cost of producing it?

  • Angel

    Coke is. $35-45 a gram in Houston

    Ahhh I remember when I gave some plutonium to some guy named Doc Brown…. Wonder what he Everett do with it???

  • ahhh

    Little did Dan know, but when Anti-Matter comes in contact with Matter, the two fuse and become photons (or light) and give off energy…So…I do believe his neighbor hood should be a bright abyss…

    Californium is one of the most valuable elements. Suck on that Francium, Polonium, Germanium, and um, Americium. Also berkelium.
    All you other elements, and the places they are named off of, are implicitly inferior.

  • Yamomzboyfriend

    This list is so wrong! Why is Cali shrubs not listed? Where is cocaine 215 a G? Pussy should be #1….it breaks a good dude everytime! LOL

    don't forget Printer Ink … $3,000 per litre (or $8,000 per gallon) according to wiki …
    god, that stuff's expensive!

    The real problem with buying anti-matter is, where do you store it?
    If it comes in contact with normal matter (hint: everything), it dissolves.

  • Adam Hacke

    Where's printer ink? It should be on this list.

  • Cristian Jaeger Ricalde

    LOL! who's your dealer? you're getting ripped off dude

  • BigKid

    So if we sell a litte antimatter, the debt problem would be fixed….?

    The cocaine pricing is way off. Otherwise a really cool article!

  • I'm just saying.

    All of these materials are dirt cheap compared with the price of semen. I let go of just a few grams of it eight years ago and now she, my daughter, has cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    How do you measure the money worth of antimatter? Just curious.
