Re: Just in time for XYZmas, Breaking Bad Action Figures

I voted no, but IMO they shouldn't sell other stuff that harms impressionable young minds, such as Barbie dolls. Maybe kids are not influenced by 'cool stuff' they are exposed to. But, what the hell do I know. :nono: Hey, I was responding to this, I'm not trying to be an a$$. IMO, tv shows that dum...

Re: Just in time for XYZmas, Breaking Bad Action Figures

I doubt most kids look to action figures and toys as role models. I played with Voltron, Transformers, GI Joes, Barbies, AND My Little Ponies as a kid, and never did I want to be any of them. I never wanted to look like any of them. They were just toys, and sometimes they fought against good, someti...

Re: Does anyone have a roomba (or other robot vacuum)?

My friend had a mid-range one that she constantly raved about and insisted I get one. I asked her to bring it over one day before dinner, and the roomba ended up upside down and unable to right itself in the kitchen (on floormat over hardwood), the bathroom (another floormat, but different material,...

WOW, what a stunning ring! One of the most beautiful diamonds I've ever seen was a light brown at the smithsonian. I adore this color. Congratulations!!

Re: What do you think? Should I or not buy this 'ol cushion?

I recognize that seller's pictures. They charge a restocking fee, right? If I'm not mistaken, they usually inflate their grading. I'm personally not a fan of the facet pattern.

Re: The Sudden Love For Vintage Diamonds

Perhaps this isn't a linear digression of cut as some make it out to be. People are now exposed to different cuts of the past and they're branching out. H&A has been around for a long time now, and is so common and part of the norm that I expect buyers to be informed about it. Perhaps that's why...

Re: The Sudden Love For Vintage Diamonds

Some people seem to think that all old cuts are crap, and while a lot of them are, some of them aren't. There are well cut old diamonds with amazing light return, and I happen to own one.

Re: My Amazing Holy Grail - 9.9mm OEC!

Thanks, everyone!! AstonMartin, the diamond doesn't have a hint of fluorescence. I'm actually not positive it's an L.

Re: Uncerted OEC Thoughts? - See VIDEO!

It looks nice in the video. How much do they want for it? Sending it to AGI for cut evaluation will probably be worthless, since they'll probably give you angles which won't tell you how nice this diamond looks. Old cuts can't really be evaluated based on numbers. I'd send it to an appraiser who is ...

Re: KUDOS to the NFL for firing player for domestic violence

It's about time. A lot of people have been very upset about this since it happened. It's a shame that the NFL only suspended Rice for two games initially when they suspended/fined many other players much more harshly for far less.

Re: Is it okay to recline your airline seat?

Many airlines have seats that glide forward as you recline back. Meaning you lose your own knee space as you recline (unless the person in front of you do the same), and you don't collapse on the person behind you. I much prefer those seats. Also, when I get up, I always push off on my own seatback ...
