Question Please Help Me Understand BitCoins

Nice forum. I am actually looking for some help understanding BitCoins.

If anyone has any advice or suggested reading for a novice such as myself it would be greatly appreciated! Where do you buy them? Where do you keep them? How much is a BitCoin worth? Are they safe to buy/use? I would love to have a better understanding of the whole BitCoin scene so I can share my new found understanding with my friends at I get asked questions about BitCoins all the time and have to tell them I don't understand how they work enough to answer. Help?

Thanks in advance!

I don't like paper fiat currency, which I can actually hold in my hand, and use most anywhere. Using an electronic currency that I can't even hold, or readily use most places is of even less interest to me. The whole reason I found this forum was cause I would like to see a return to real real money made of silver and gold, or at a bare minimum being backed by those metals once again.

Here's all you need to know about bitcoin: Nobody will take credit for its creation.
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
