There was a rubber shortage in 1942, which no doubt wrecked havock on the elastics necessary to keep women's panties up at the time.

Then it might go the way of the earlier redhead thread...

TheAnvil: Women wear pants?


This.

Either Subby is a prude, and likes his women in pants which leave way too much to the imagination. Or Subby meant to say panties.

Panties, I like everything about that word. Except when associated with grannies.

Do diamonds have a negative Poisson's ratio?
 
2012-01-19 06:23:49 PM  
It's sort of on topic, so I'm curious. Why do some people, both men and women (but this is clearly a mysoginistic question, so for my sake majorly women) have such an obsession over rare metals and gemstones?

I obviously don't get it, there's nothing in the world I drool over, real or pretend, like I've seen some girls oogle rocks. Not to mention the panty dropper meme.

Is it money? Culture? Prestige?

This is a sincere question, and not at all a troll.

Does a cork? Because that would be pretty cool if you could pull on it and it'd become wider in the other two dimensions instead of narrower.

I mean, I've not actually tried stretching a cork but it seems like an unlikely physical property for it to have.

Because in our monkey hearts, we interpret sparkly with clean, clear water. Add that with the status of rare things, and gems become irresistible. For men, it seems to come out as a variety of things: a freshly polished car or musical instrument of choice, high end electronics, a nude woman draped in gems, physical money, watches, guns...

It's a form of conspicuous consumption. If you like, conspicuous gifting. You're saying to a woman "hey, look how much money I've got. I can get you this big rock. Think what else I can do for you if we get married", because most (or certainly a lot of) women are looking for a provider.

And the marketeers work on both sides. They tell insecure men that they should buy a diamond, and that it should cost 2 month's salary, and tell women that a diamond is the sign of love. DeBeers basically set diamond prices high despite the fact that there's huge numbers of diamonds.

Honestly, TWO MONTHS SALARY. Is there anything more insane? Wouldn't it be better to use that as a deposit on a house together?

I would argue no, simply because the woman gets to keep both regardless, and the diamond IS cheaper than a house.

But thanks for the answers all. Makes sense a bit.

The "two months salary" is not a "tradition". It is one of the most brilliant and effective marketing campaigns in the history of advertising. Guess which diamond company came up with it?
