Yeah thatís actually a theorized thing, basically the opposite of a white hole where you canít enter from the outside but energy, matter, and light can escape.

GRB 060614 is one, maybe.

i've got one friend that got his ring tattooed. Didn't make it two years, at least the rings are generally easy to remove.

A friend of mine had a wooden wedding band. It was actually very nice. Easy to remove and no associated sunk cost when she finally got divorced

I *love* rocks, but the cut and set sort doesn't really interest me... I like things like geodes and tumbled stones with beautiful patterns and strange mineral clusterfucks. Just symmetrical facets, while quite sparkly, don't capture the coolness of geological forces

Like 90% of people (experts excluded, of course) can't even tell the difference between a gemstone and coloured crystal, let alone a synthetic gemstone and a natural one. I have a friend who makes jewelry with coloured crystals and sells them for like ten bucks each; I've bought several, and every now and then I get someone asking me "Hey nice ring, is that a sapphire?" or something like that.

Do you think they got confused between lab-grown diamonds and moissanite/cubic zirconia?

I'm pretty sure that once you wipe the third-world child's blood off a natural diamond, it is identical to a lab-grown one

Lab-grown ones are prone to mutating and eating their way up your arm.

Nobody with the ability to spend that much money would ever pay me any notice let alone want to marry me, but no I definitely wouldn't.

$10,000 could be a fun little honeymoon.

When I bought my wife her engagement ring I had spent weeks paying for it and picking out the exact ring she wanted, without giving things away.

Years later we had to sell it to make ends meet and I felt horrible about it, but my wife was pretty chill. Turns out my mom told her that I had no idea what I was doing and that she picked everything put and told me what to do, which obviously ruined it for my wife.

I don't talk to my mom anymore.

Yeah, I was going to say, on top of it being an incredibly stupid take, over a dozen states still have laws against sodomy. And a handful of them specify that, yes, by "sodomy" they mean same-sex intercourse.

Lawrence v Texas struck those down. They remain on the books but arenít actually in effect, itís fairly rare for states to go back and repeal unconstitutional laws. A ton still have flag burning laws on the books and thereís been two cases about those saying theyíre not valid.
