Oh, yes!

Synthetic diamonds produced by current mfg processes also glow in UV light. So the claim that at the atomic level they are identical must be false (perhaps over optimistic is a more polite term). The article mentioned that; and specifically, that the latest processes overcame this effect. Just to c...

I did find one cut called the "Princess" cut that was beautiful in appearance. Drawing that would be really difficult though.

Label me pedantric, but isn't the point to debaters that they don't have a heartfelt reason for backing a particular side of an argument and can switch if required? It may be true of some, but it hardly is a requirement for the role. My own position on many issues is rather moderate, and I do what ...

To "level" with you, I agree -- the events of 9/11 should not be laid on the President's head. However, the economy WAS tanking even before hand, I recall. Indeed; about 18 months before. Though to be fair, the dot-com business was an accident waiting to happen, and it incentivized some very bizarr...

I love Galore's confusion about Jack carrying Jenny's bag. In fact, her body language is priceless, as she tries to figure out why a male is doing manual labor...for a female, no less! The ears down, wringing her tail... It is a suprising twist. But this "backward, clueless society" is the source o...
