                  The rarest metal is a song by Tami called "the tiger". If you find it please let me know where I can get a hold of it.

                    A metal is deemed to be precious if it is rare and desirable. According to the Ancient Alien theory, the Anunnaki genetically altered primitive mankind and created a labor force which allowed them to mine gold. Thumbs up if you are a believer.

Howard Stark used the entire world's supply of Vibranium to make Captain Americas Shield... making it the rarest precious metal. (and strongest) until... lo and Behold! Ulysses Klaue found more of the FINAL "entire world's supply" and sold that to Tony's Bot (Tony Stark's) Why Tony's bot?. Well Tony created Ultron the Artificial Intelligence Peacekeeping Program from the mind stone which was found inside Loki's scepter, however Tonys bot (Ultron) had a different agenda (fuck peacekeeping he/it? thought), the mofo, bought the final "entire world supply" vibranium to create a physical and indistructable body for himself, however Jarvis that sneaky little program, stole the Vibranium body for himself, in the end creating Vision. But all of that dosent really matter becouse all of this time the final, final, FINAL "entire world supply" of vibranium was located in Wakanda. they protected it like Smaugs protecting his mountain of gold in the Hobbit, but it was not a mountain of gold it was a mountain of Vibranium protected by Wakandans? Wakandanees? Waka... Africans. yes, yes, yes... there are those of you that would argue that the Adamantium, inside Wolverine (Adamantium Beta) which is a distinct version of Adamantium that can regenerate/Self repair together with wolverines regenrative ability is the rarest of the rarest.. wait what is that! OMFG! There is something called Bitcoin, and when it's all mined there will literally be nothing of it left! shit gotta check out how rare that is!
