Because I am not a material girl living in a material world. Diamonds are not my best friend. Doggo's are.
@KillerofJokes, you're all diamond dogs.
@KillerofJokes, You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fûcking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.
@KillerofJokes, wish my girlfriend were that way. She loves diamonds. I think they're the most stupid thing on the planet
Diamonds are intrinsically worthless. They are common, it's just that the debeers Corp. Has a stranglehold on the market
Mutual funds are a better investment
Legit tho buy "Moissanite" it's way cheaper and most people like it more. Not to mention it's 2x shinier and sparklier.
@HellboyPerlman, how is it made? How is it mined? I don't buy diamonds because the price is inflated but because of terrible mining conditions and the blood diamond trade.
@Sambob, you see, they take a chunk of carbon, the building block of all gemstones, and they ram it up a small African child's anus, then once he's fully exhausted from mining blood diamonds, they shoot him with exactly 53 RPG-7's, and what's left is a sizable chunk of Moissanite
@Anass Rhammer, "African children / black canaries" ... "tomato / tomahto"
Because Blood Diamond is a fantastic movie
@SimonPetrikov, blood diamonds are the best! Sometimes they give you dvds of the miners fighting over who found it
Headlines like this make the Economist look like dumb cünts
Because I'm securing my future in tanzanite.
There are way cooler gems out there. I want a bismuth or labradorite ring, not a boring glass-looking glob.
Diamonds are intrinsically worthless Adam ruins everything for more info
Too busy getting high and protesting, sorry
Cause diamonds are boring af
Because they are rocks and there are way cooler things to buy other than rocks.
Because we have been ethically conditioned to not want something if it hurts someone else. Sucks though that almost anything we do in 3rd world countries has negative outcomes.
Mine diamonds: bunch of fvçked upnrigamaroll.
Stop mining diamonds: those we employed (barely paid) are now broke and jobless and concentrated near a desolate mine. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
We should probably start just paying them in food, shelter, water and technology.
@mas2de, yes there are some mines in certain places of the world that have cruel conditions but the whole world isn't like that. On the ring I bought to propose to my girlfriend the diamond came from a mine in Canada.
Wrong type of karats...same for that bag of "ice"
Because you touch yourself at night.
Because diamonds are worthless and a scam. *whistles Adam Ruins Everything theme*
Ik the guy who tweeted that. I played high school basketball against him for 4 years. He went to a school that was 15 minutes away from mine.
Then get an education or a trade and get a better job you tool.
