val·u·a·ble having considerable monetary worth; costing or bringing a high price: a valuable painting; a valuable crop.
For the past decade, every time Kobe steps to the free throw line, the fans start chanting, MVP, MVP, MVP. Most Valuable Player I heard a sports commentator tonight say that Peyton Manning may earn ‘best comeback player’ and ‘most valuable player.’ That word “Valuable” is tossed around a lot.
I’m constantly hearing about valuable comic books, valuable coins, valuable toys, and valuable antiques. I have an old buddy whose house is filled with valuable antiques. They are the most uncomfortable valuables I’ve ever seen.
So, what is MVM…most valuable material? Thanks to “Wired” magazine, I found out. Here is a list of Valuable materials by the ounce. All the following prices are the cost per ounce of this material:
Beluga Caviar $345.00
Nambian uncut rough diamonds $98,490.00
Plutonium Oxide $165,500.00
Soliris (anemia drug) $533,000.00
Human Eggs $157,000,000,000,000.00
