Except the actual yield of salt would be very very low, and for any real profit would require a large vat

You need salt flats besides the seashore to make a business out of it.

As long as you lived in the part that's modern day italy, you were good. Which is why it was the richest part.

That, I believe, actually originated in Rome, as soldiers were payed in salt.
User avatar #13 to #7 - mitchr (09/07/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure they weren't payed in salt. They got food, positions, and a nice plot of land after their long service in the military. And, of course, pensions, paid in denarii.

Salt may have been rare, but they sure as hell weren't making coins out of it.

Then you're pretty sure you're wrong.
User avatar #12 - foelkera (09/07/2013) [-]
This lead to the word "Salary" as well as the phrase "To be worth one's salt"

User avatar #37 - Loppytaffy (09/07/2013) [-]
That is where the word "salary" comes from. People used to be paid in salt.

You DARE disrespect the almighty doge?!?!?   
   
You must now pay a sacrifice to the Divine Shibe, and either kill your first born in his name, or commit suicide.   
   
If you do neither, you shall face a fate worse than death.

whats where the phrase
"any [insert profession] worth his salt..."
comes from
User avatar #22 to #6 - ellenrimbauer (09/07/2013) [-]
There is a phrase that goes "he's not worth his salt" or something like that. Its something about babies being placed in salt after they were born because it had certain medicinal perks. If someone isn't worth their salt, its like saying they were not successful I think.

For those who want to know more,
In modern times, there are nomads in Ethiopia that still use salt as money. This practice probably originated from the times of Genghis Khan, duringh which salt was pressed with the image of Genghis Khan and used as coins.
#27 to #2 - anon (09/07/2013) [-]
you're incorrect about the second half of your statement as the romans used salt to pay some of their soldiers, and they predate the genghis' khanate
User avatar #19 to #2 - kingrayne ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
The use of salt as money is from Ghana, who traded gold for salt simply because salt was much more useful than gold.

User badmonkey here, apparently I am blocked by you and can't comment on your content if logged in and I'm just questioning why. I'm pretty sure I don't know you nor have I offended you in anyway.

I was told in school that the reason it was used as currency was because there were no refrigerators so it was used to preserve meat and was therefore a valuable commodity.
that could be complete ******** , i dunno

thank you

That's also where the superstition of throwing salt over your left shoulder if you spill it comes from. As the superstition goes, a devil sits on your left shoulder (guardian angel on the right) and caused the bad luck of spilling the valuable salt, so you would take a pinch and toss it over your left shoulder into the devils eyes to hurt him and stop the bad luck or throw it past him as sort of an offering, since salt was valuable, to distract or placate him.

But see the thing is, salt was so valuable because it prevented food spoilage. As far as I'm aware, sperm doesn't have that same effect (Also, I don't know about you but I'd rather not even try to be honest)

I'm disgusted and aroused (didn't have a suitable reaction pic for it =/)
