I’m reminded of those Gamera movies from the ‘90s with Steven Seagal’s daughter.
Got a load in the garage.
Waiting for prices to take off.
How about a little trade for some of my mithril? LOL
I remember a Donald Duck comic book from when I was around 10. It was one of the best and had Huey, Dewey, and Louie in Atlantis.
“the ancient metal that was purported to be mined at the mythical island of Atlantis”
I thought the ancient metal purported to be in mined at the mythical island of Atlantis was Unobtainium.
Are you kidding? I’ve been offered that trade too many times to count.
There’s tons of it in the earth. Just a little deep is all :)
Izzat pronounced Attuhlantis?
I got just a small chunk I keep in the cellar with some structual pieces of Reardon Metal I salvaged from an old bridge.

Used to get those in the mail. Scrooge McDuck was always featured with his bursting at the seems bank vault. Always sending the Donald group off on a quest. Atlantis was one.

No that’s what the latest racing bicycles are made from. You confusing that with Vibranium which is the material used to make Captain America’s shield. You could also be confusing unobtanium with Tritanium which is the metal used to build the hull of the Starship Enterprise
Was it mixed in with the phlogiston?
I’ll trade it for my perpetual motion machine and a pound of anti-matter.
I always thought having a money bin full of gold and silver coins was a good idea. Probably would be worth billions.
When I was around six, I used to daydream that I owned a storage building full of firecrackers. Maybe 12’ square and packed to the ceiling with fireworks.
Then there’s Administratium, Bureaucratium and Bombastium.
