Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

I was bullied mercilessly as a kid.
It stopped when I figured out I was inviting it, encouraging it, nurturing it, and thriving on it.

Not an easy lesson to learn.
Playing the victim has great payoffs.

Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

Re: By Popular Demand: Politics in ATW

I started the ball rolling by posting a questionnaire. It takes 5 minutes and plots your politics on a graph, Left vs. Right, and Authoritarian vs. Libertarian.

The most unpleasant people, Ella, have not been DF or Kenny in my experience. Not at all -- they have been female, for one thing, and probably in their 20s, at least that's the age they seemed.

Re: Statistical Analysis of Diamond Pricing

Hi, TL, when the Vice-President of a company calls a potential customer cray-cray, that is more than having a chuckle, as Karl suggests.

Re: Opinions: My ring for Her :)

EGL International is not reputable. The color and clarity grades are probably several grades worse than what the report says. Stick to diamonds graded by GIA and AGS.

Re: Getting ring off finger

Fingers can swell from the trauma of repeated unsuccessful attempts to force a ring off.

If you think you may have swelling you may want to give it a few day's rest before trying the next idea.

Re: Major Help needed on setting this ROSE cut PEAR!!!

There are clearly people out there who love rose cut diamonds, and obviously, such individuals appreciate qualities other than those that are prized in modern brilliant cuts (i.e., scintillation, brightness, contrast, et al.).

Re: How did you feel when you got your first diamond/s

At 19 I bought a diamond ring in a pawn shop for $75.
Still have it somewhere, probably around 0.25 ct J SI1 and cut like crap.
Hideous 1960s setting. :knockout:

I really enjoyed it at the time, though.

Yes it is possible that her opinion will be that the astonishing fire, sparkle, contrast, and scintillation of well-cut diamond is not desirable. :roll: People certainly do vary.

I'd hate for you to wear it, love it, but one day sit next to a woman in a restaurant wearing a pear that is a conventional and well-cut.
