Interesting fact about gold

From the article "The Real Price of Gold" in the Jan. '09 issue of National Geographic (highlights below are mine):

"In all of history, only 161,000 tons of gold have been mined, barely enough to fill two Olympic-size swimming pools. More than half of that has been extracted in the past 50 years."

That's crazy!
