proteon: Land said she put [the $20,000 ring] in her jacket pocket intending to bring it to the front desk when she was finished, but she forgot.

What's its gots in its pockets, Precious?

Lots of fun tidbits in TFA, partially because I live in STL.

1. I've been tanning exactly once. It was before senior prom, and my date wanted me to look less pale for pictures. It was at this place. (Unless there's more than one TanCo is St. Chuck, entirely possible.)

2. Did anyone else read "Jack Banas" as "Jack Bananas"?

3. "Who follows those statutes if you find something on a sidewalk? Nobody," said Joseph J. Simeone, a professor emeritus at St. Louis University School of Law

Prof Simeone taught my brother at SLU law; I went there for undergrad but knew him as well.

4. St. Charles police Detective Mike Myers

This shiat is too easy; I'll let someone else run with it.

5. She had to hire Clayton attorney Matthew Chase

Works in the same building as my brother does now.

6. "Police have treated this like it's the robbery of Fort Knox with an army," he said.

What about the landmark case of Finders vs Keepers?

Came for this. I'm pretty sure it's a real case law.

Between the change room and the front door?

I found a ring!

I was thinking more along the lines of taking possession of the ring...getting her spray tan...and then it slipper her mind. As opposed to finding the ring and then forgetting between the changing room and front door.

that being said, she was spray we aren't dealing with a mental giant...if you know what I mean...and I think you do.

WhyKnot: Flakeloaf: TheWhoppah: Good luck in proving that she had intent to deprive the owner of the property at the time that she found it as requird by the model.

Stuffing an expensive ring into your pocket, telling nobody about it and making no effort to return it would probably suggest intent to keep it.

not really, if she found the ring while disrobing, it is plausible that you wouldn't immediately take it to the front desk. Additionally, assuming she had already put the ring in her pocket 'for safe keeping until she could return it', it is additionally plausible that she forgot that she had it.

Sgt.Zim: Can Fark help me with this yellow diamond thing, since I'm too lazy too Google it myself right now, when I'm thinking about it, plus that would interfere with Farking...

Anyway, all these years, we've been brainwashed led to believe that colorless is better, and that colors in a diamond are flaws... So what's with these great yellow monstrosities?

The colored ones are made from the ashes of dead people. (new window)

Stupid biatch. If you find a $20K ring you don't turn it in for the reward. Cash For Gold is how real thieves deal with precious metals.

Because if you're that careless with a firearm then you have no right to own one.

Some statements are just to true to believe.

p.s. if you find a 2nd gun I'll take it for you.

I will say this... if I ever find a gun in a bathroom I'll probably keep it and add it to my own.

Land said she forgot about the ring until a few weeks later, when she wore the same jacket on a trip to Minnesota and found it in her pocket.

"I felt so guilty about having it that I just rolled it up in some tissue and put it in a back pocket of my purse," she said. "I didn't know how to take it back."

That's just how I felt about all that bank money. I left the bags in the closet; and when I found them a week later, I figured it was best just to hold on to it.
