Bought remote cheap norcal coastal real-estate in 1998 before AGW (it was global warming then). That investment has been real cool man (get it? cool.) People want to be here now because it is sunny and 65 degrees in mid July. They more and more are scared of AGW (I was also) and my area keeps looking better.
doom has worked for me
Sure, I bought a number of gold coins between 400 and 800. Stopped buying at that point, which proved to be a good idea. I've also kept funding retirement accounts and the like and have done much, much better than if I'd kept putting money into gold.
