i always wondered this
How Much Are The Raw Materials For The Olympic Medals Worth?

Many #Olympics  athletes would never sell their medals, so putting a price on them is not possible; however, some have auctioned them off and gotten as much as several hundreds of thousands of dollars. It depends on the athlete and the auction; some have auctioned them off for charity or to pay for medical expenses. 

However, in terms of raw materials, a gold medal weighs 400g total, of which 394g is sterling silver, and layered on top with 6 grams of 24 karat gold plating. They have not handed out solid gold medals since 1912.

Though the raw materials fluctuate from day to day, this makes a gold medal worth roughly about $624 in terms of materials. A silver medal is made of 93% silver and 7% copper. It's worth about $330. Bronze medals are worth the least in terms of materials, being made of mostly copper, with small amounts of zinc and tin. 

The design of this year's Olympics medals consists of two views:

Front: Nike, the goddess of victory, with Panathinaiko Stadium in the background
Reverse: The River Thames and the London Games logo with angled lines in the background.

Apart from the intrinsic value of the medals, the Olympics medal winners are also given cash awards, separate from the medals. These amounts are: $25,000 for gold, $15,000  for silver, and $10,000 for bronze.

A man was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding. Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area again, but the traffic camera again flashed. He tried a fourth time with the same result. He did this a fifth time and was now laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this time at a snail's pace. Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt.
