The website PricedInGold.com measures how much things would cost you in gold. - 

This final note, which will appeal to the Ron Paul fans out there. His best-known saying is "end the Fed," of course, followed closely by, "it's only money if you pull it out of the ground." By which he means gold.

So, I found a website courtesy of my Twitter feed today called PricedInGold.com. You can look up pretty much everything -- natural gas, food, you name it.

Anyway, I clicked on college tuition and it turns out that, if you're paying in gold, a year at Yale University costs about the same today as it did in 1900. One kilogram.

'Course, today there's that price of gold thing to deal with. Today, 'bout $1,700 an ounce.
