By - truly-immaculate
Seems like it would chafe the nips
Nips are gold-plated too.
I love goooold!
“Save me from myself!”
Pipe and a cripe?
Bong and a blintz?
Shmoke and pancake?
Cigar and a waffle?
Flapjack and a cigarette?
Hookah and hotcakes?
I see there is no pleasing you.
The taste of if, the smell of it, the texture of it
And the scrote? If he only went nips and no scrote then he a faker and not really a playa.
Goldmember wants to know your location
And get really hot, imagine wearing a metal shirt on a summer day
This guy is asking to get robbed.
How to attract white utility vans 101.
Step 1. Be child alone on the street
Step 2: be wearing a $200,000 gold shirt or just realllly in love with candy
Gona try this two step program, seems simple enough
Putting my kid on the street, he loves candy from strangers
How do I find the children wearing $200,000 gold shirts? just feel like they'd be easier to beat and rob.
I shouldn't have laughed, but I did. I hate you for making me laugh at something so very terrible.
I'm sure with that kind of money on his person he has security with him
Yes. The person behind him with a black shirt is his bodyguard
Thats actually pure onyx
Nope. Its actually a shirt dyed with printer ink. The guy in the gold shirt is his body guard.
So he's the whole who drained the yellow toner and now my black and white document won't print...
Yeah, he actually got killed over it.
Edit: that was the other gold shirt Indian guy, Dattatrey D. Phuge.
[His Wikipedia is killing me](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datta_Phuge). The table of contents goes:
2) Gold Shirt
Murdered on his birthday nonetheless. The killers had to be pretty damn close to him, he thought they were bringing him to his birthday party.
One of them was his nephew.
That's really fucked up.
His son literally was a witness and he testified they all knew him. Crazy how 3 got away too
He must have been a terrible guy to them. Like instead of pitching in to help pay for surgery to save his sister's life because he had to buy a gold shirt kind of terrible.
Absolutely. Like they brought a whole mini-army plus an armory with them to the beating. Sure, you can contract family to kill someone for you, but I'm sure it wasn't in the contract that they had to use 15 different instruments of death to do it. This was personal af.
(Opens the armory safe door. ‘Let’s see here, we need a sickle, and… ah, yes, grab maybe three or so of those boulders. Oh, I guess let’s take the sword and these knives too. Anything else? Actually let’s bring the rod as well. Okay, good to go.’)
Holy crap, the way the Wikipedia describes his murder sounds like a bad comedy skit...
And then they beat him with sickles and then they beat him with rods and finally they beat him with boulders
>I just love gold. Gold has always been my passion since a young age. I've always worn gold as jewellery in the form of bracelets, rings, chains
Rumor has it that in his 20's he lost his most cherished body part in an unfortunate smelting accident
*I LOOVE GOOOOOOOOOLD*
Just how many gold shirt Indian guys keep showing up each month?!
Cut off one shirt and two more shall take its place.
Fun fact, if mercury happened to be gold colored it would probably have been called that. The old name for mercury is hydrogyrum, from hydros (water) and argyrum (silver). I likely misspelled every single one of those words
Argyrum is an alcoholic spirit distilled from sugar-cane residues or molasses that makes you a bit fighty.
There will be a final boss
If I had a dime for every Indian gold shirt guy I've heard about, I'd have two dimes, which isn't much, but it's weird that it happened twice
If you had stopped focusing on dimes and robbed them instead, you’d have 2 gold shirts.
Man inflation is even hitting the doofenschmirtz quote. It used to be two nickles.
Just the one, it's the same shirt but different people
Its like with Dumbledores wand. You kill a person and it becomes yours
I feel like two Indian gold shirt guys is at least three too many Indian gold shirt guys
Yea be your own you guys. Pick another element for your shirt. There’s already a gold shirt guy
I heard he did… he was invited to a party and mugged when he showed up… at least the internet said at one point and I’m willing to spread it without checking
Didnt he get killed?
No no no. I heard he's pregnant though, due in a few more months.
His wife was eaten by a turtle.
Congratulations to him!
Ah yes I know about this! I can definitely back you up bro. I haven't checked either, but I can back you up - so here I am.
I heard it twice now. It is 100% true
Yeah, but the pants kind of negate the shirt, so he might be ok unless he gets some gold pantaloons
Not like the golden thong guy. That could walk without clothes and still nobody would want to touch that.
They're gonna steal the shirt off his back.
There is a weird obsession regarding gold in India. We read daily about chains being snatch from women out shopping in market by someone on bike. Flaunting wealth seems to be hard-coded in humans but is specially worse over here . People will buy iphones incurring debts just to show off as being rich , makes no sense .
*Me, looking up and down the street in my middle income neighboring*: new Audi, lifted Ram pickup, Tesla, Tesla.
Mostly it's older but well maintained Toyotas, Subarus, minivans, Hondas, Kias - regular, modest vehicles - but there's definitely people going in to debt for appearances here too. Cars instead of gold for this little slice of life stateside.
Two questions. Why? And how does he wash it?
One time use, melted down and made into toilet for his solid gold yacht.
are you suggesting he use (gasp) recycled metal? Surely not, this will be thrown away and fresh new gold brought in for that purpose.
That all being said: gold is almost certainly too heavy to be used on any boat for things aside from gold leaf for decoration
Brave of you to assume anyone on Reddit is under 45kg
Put a child in the golden boat.
Maybe I wanted to float a baby out to sea in a massive gold sphere...
Does anyone else look at extravagances like this and think, there are millions without enough to eat, but someone decides the need a golden yacht? My brain can’t comprehend the disparity.
The problem seems to be a distinct lack of guillotines ever since 1799...
Just about every normal human should be appalled by this kind of thing.
But the people that can afford and want to have golden everything aren't normal.
They want absurd displays of wealth, even when it's impractical or just looks.. tacky. Like a Gucci belt, it's pointlessly expensive but it's a status symbol.
The super wealthy know there's people starving and suffering in poverty because most of them make their billions from exploitation.
If the billionaire owner of that yacht was told exactly how many people could be fed, homed, treated, etc with the money it cost to make it, they would simply ask for a golden statue to be placed on the front.
Making a toilet out of it is for peasants. Weave it into toilet paper.
Use molten gold in a bidet
Gold is anti-microbial. Maybe it stays fresh by itself.
Nothing can beat a stinky armpit, not even Gold
He takes daily Golden showers.
urine trouble for that joke
I thought that was silver.
Great, i have to buy a gold *and* silver shirt now? I just heard about this self cleaning material and i gotta be honest, it is getting real expensive in a hurry
Think of all the laundry soap you’ll save though!
It will pay for itself before the Sun engulfs the Earth. How could anyone argue against the numbers?
Gold shirt and silver tank. You know that white which powerlifters are sometimes wearing.
Many metals are. So is copper.
Copper shirts are for plebes. My man, the bandit, has too much class for that.
Lots of metals are. It's also one of the reasons you'll see brass plates or handles on bathroom doors.
Maybe it’s maybelline
Hmm. Could be because he's worth it.
Or because he was born with it?
We used to have gold threaded pajamas when working in hyperbaric chambers
The chambers were filled with 100% oxygen and they didn’t want static to blow up the building.
This guy is probably on his way for a hyperbaric treatment.
Hyperbolic you said!?
Hypertonic lion tamer
Genuinely curious, what sort of hyperbaric chamber runs with 100% oxygen? I’ve worked around/close to diving chambers on ships and they invariably use Helios or Nitrox.
Air Force research labs
The original hyperbaric chambers used for the space shuttle program.
You can sit in a pressurized chamber with a mask that delivers 100% oxygen
but these chambers fill the entire room with 100% oxygen.
There was a major mishap -A kid was receiving hyperbaric treatment and apparently snuck in one of those old school toys
where you press it…. And it shoots out sparks….
In a multi room chamber of pressurized, 100% oxygen.
Shortly after this disaster, (I think) it was Apollo 1 that blew up in the same manner…
Thanks for the info, super interesting.
Sounds like a bad day for the kid…
Yeah that's the ticket
Soap and water, duh
Machine washable? ;-)
Looking like a piece of stepped on Velveeta
Homie up there looking like a busted ass kraft singles
It’s to distract from his hairy weird shaped arms
the swelling in the wrist area, esp. on the left, is indicative of a serious circulatory issue so i hope he has named an heir for that stupid shirt
When you got more money than taste
Aye, Right? Besides, I knew a lad who had a shirt of Mithril. Wee fella but good with a sword. Well, it was more of a letter opener, really. That was what me cousin called it. Ahhh me cousin. Should pass through and visit him. He would surely give a royal welcome
They called it a mine.
*and so begins yet another journey through the 6 bluray discs that is the LOTR*
Your cousin’s hall is no mine… it’s a tomb
You said Mithril and I thought RuneScape. Would have been a pleasant surprise. But LOTR is also a pleasant surprise.
God I need to get back into OSRS…..
I fulfilled the nostalgia by just watching people stream it a bit. Man I was addicted to that damn game.
Thanks for making me think of salted pork and malt beer
Rrrripe meat off the bone!
I like it, I'd pay $21.10 for it
20$ more than what I'd pay
All that money and it still looks like shit.
You shouldn't bother trying to outdo [Real OG Golden armor crafting of ~~Charlemagne~~](https://live.staticflickr.com/3455/3794554410_009febdc9a_b.jpg)...[Henry II of France](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parade_Armour_of_Henry_II_of_France) (I think I confused with Charlemagne golden bust maybe, but Google misled me)
They didn't have that type of armor during the time of Charlemagne.
I wish we still wore plate armor. It was so cool
EDIT: Update for you all. I found/joined a medieval theater troupe in my area. After training will come plate mail. It will be glorious
What’s stopping you? You only get one life!
Having only the one life is sorta correlated.
It’s not illegal to grocery shop in full plate armor
I never said it was illegal, [it’s just not generally approved by management.](https://youtu.be/HUbKxVlA_0M)
Man watching that pissed me off, so many cops are just on a power trip their whole shift acting like they’re above fellow citizens. The guy they stopped was nothing but cooperative and they treated him terribly.
Absolute bullshit [he lost his lawsuit](https://www.gvnews.com/news/spd-officers-off-the-hook-in-2019-walmart-arrest/article_50f2d90c-b6cd-11ec-9c5c-6fb5f05816dd.html) for not “notifying the officers *individually* of his claim”. The police get to completely abuse the justice system in every possible way. In a normal lawsuit, the fucking police or a lawyer notifies the defendant, there should be zero reason you should have to notify the police *individually* that you’re suing them. What a nice little loophole for them.
It's always infuriating to me watching grown men have temper tantrums about the most benign shit... This could have been easily solved without any police involvement.
"Do you have a receipt for your purchases?"
"Looks like he wasn't shoplifting. Would you please make sure not to come in here with a helmet on again?"
"Alright, everyone have a nice day."
But the store manager didn't like having his authority challenged, and the police didn't like someone standing up for themselves, so neither of those parties were going to stop unless he completely rolled over and just took it. Good for him standing up for himself, I hope he gets a nice settlement.
How are they gonna stop you when you're fully armored?
Still can, even bellbottoms and tight pants are back in..
A stove pipe hats
Charlemagne died centuries before plate armor like this existed.
That isn't Charlemagne's armor. That armor was the [ceremonial armor of Henry II of France](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parade_Armour_of_Henry_II_of_France)
**[Parade Armour of Henry II of France](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parade_Armour_of_Henry_II_of_France)**
>The Parade Armour of Henry II of France, now in Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, is believed to date from c 1553–55 and its decoration is attributed to the French goldsmith and engraver Étienne Delaune. Designed for use in pageantry, the armour was fashioned of gold, silver and steel and with leather and red velvet trimmings. It was created for Henry II of France as ceremonial wear; the figures embossed on the breastplate and back are intended to reflect his military achievements. There are 20 surviving mid-sixteenth drawings, thought to be by Delaune, used for sketching the original design.

The cut is all wrong.
Isn't that usually how it goes with tons of gold on anything fashion wise? Super tacky.
My thoughts. There are much better ways to spend the money IMO. Even if you have a lot and don't know what to do with it.
Stinks like shit too after a while I imagine
I don't think gold is a good surface for germs to grow so it should be fine tbh
silver would be better. he could disinfect entire kiddie pools in 20 mins
Yes, but silver is also much cheaper and might lead people to think you can't even afford gold shirts.
A silver shirt of the same weight would cost $2356
Think it’s dry clean only?
Naw he washes it with everything else, so all his clothes are gold tinted
And his washing machine looks like a bottle of Goldschläger
I think gold is antiseptic so would be good to go with with rinse
All those tiny chains woven together…I bet this shirt rips out body hair like an epilady.
Actually, it's probably made of fibers coated in gold. That's how gold threads are made. You can even see the stitching. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloth\_of\_gold
Are you telling me that the title on reddit lied to me then?
No way, that never happens here
Man, in a fit of epic nerd-dom, in my teens I crafted a box chain-mail choker for my girlfriend out of German silver, fine wire, tiny loops...I mean, it *looked* good.
It apparently served excellently as an epilator when worn. I can only *imagine* what a man as hairy as he is must feel with every step...
Teen you had much better taste IMHO. Chain-mail anything would be much cooler.
And I'm assuming dude in the back is probably his bodyguard? Or I hope so at least...
Either is his body guard or someone about to get a free new gold shirt.
Shirts gonna get passed from arsehole to arsehole like the Elder Wand.
Or armpit to armpit.
Bracelet looks like a car engine part.
Dude looks like he owns half of the Indian police squad. Those are totally armed guards.
Lmfao user name checks out
The coat does not make the monk.
Isn’t gold super heavy? I’m surprised that 4kg of gold is enough to make a shirt
Solid gold is heavy but it's also very soft and can be flattened into insanely fine sheets so if you made a type of "thread" or even like a chain mail sort of deal with thin enough loops I think you could get it relatively light.
> and can be flattened into insanely fine sheets
Yes, yes it can. You actually carry "insanely fine sheets" of gold every day with you on your electronics.
Yeah but half of that is electroplated and the other half is reflowed, it's not hammered or drawn through a die or something.
Source: I work in semiconductor manufacturing.
Can't buy class
About as practical as a solid gold swimsuit
I believe he was later mugged and killed over this shirt
Think that was another guy with a different gold shirt…. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datta_Phuge
The guy in the article wasn't killed over the shirt. It seems like it was an assassination over other financial disputes.
I think "shirt made of gold" and "financial disputes" tend to go hand in hand.
I mean if he owed me money and was walking around in a 200k shirt, I'd want to kill him also.
Oh that was another guy
I remember the story vividly bcuz I live 5km away from there
So he wasnt killed for the gold shiry. he was running a chitfund scam and didnt split the money between his coconspirators
So on his sons birthday they lured him out alone and killed him with a rock to his head
They were caught by the police and since the chit fund scam was fully open the gold shirt was seized and used yo repay the people who were scammed
The cost of insecurities
Sounds heavy hot sweaty and uncomfortable. imagine paying that much to look cool and going around uncomfortable all day. Pluss you stick out like a sore thumb and look like an idiot and risk being mugged literaly for the shirt off your back. I'll just take my uber soft and comfy thrift store t shirt and chill thank you very much. Even if I had that kind of money I wouldnt. This is just freaking stupid.
Right? Like who are you trying to impress dude? Muggers? I occasionally buy Dollar Store shirts. They are factory "rejects" from Gildan. They're so comfy!
Actually it may not be sweaty at all. Due to gold's excellent thermal conductivity and increased surface area it may feel positively chilly.
He just looks like someone that needs their ass kicked
Good thing he didn't waste that money feeding the hungry or something trivial.
Would feed a family for what, 10 years? Makes me angry.
In India?? $200k would feed a small town for 10 years.
If you want to destroy my sweater pull this thread as I walk away....
