Re: Uncerted OEC Thoughts? - See VIDEO!

Lol... If I saw pictures this clear in any of the ebay diamonds I took a risk in, I would have jumped on it! The off facet is probably reflecting her camera or phone since the diamond is at almost the exact same angle in both pics. I would ask for some outdoor pictures in natural, shaded lighting. T...

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

Btw, he's not horrified at what I say, but how I say it. Plus he always tells me if does me no good if I end up in jail. I tell him, "that's why I want his neck broken on the field. It's a career accident. Everybody wins"

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

The most disgusting criminal that has ever played in the NFL without doing life in prison for murder-except, perhaps, OJ Simpson- is Michael Vick. I would never watch a football game in which either The Philadelphia Eagles or The New York Jets participated. If other people had any principles at all...

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

How bout massive boycott of all NFL games and all NFL advertisers? I do that already. I've never watched a football game in my life. I doubt I've ever bought anything that would be advertised on an NFL game, unless tofu, thrift stores, and hybrid cars appeal to that demographic. We watch, but I can...

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. (To me, substance abuse of marijuana isn't a big deal, unlike spousal...

Re: Is it okay to recline your airline seat?

Could you imagine transatlantic (or similar travel) without reclining seats?

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 ...
