I think I have a couple rings like that in the junk draw.  Had no idea they were worth that much

Dear Mr. Humphries.  I have some rocks in my backyard.  If I dig them up would you buy them from me?  My prices are very reasonable.  Only 4 to 5 times what you will be able to sell them for in the future.  I'll even throw in some zipties and paracord so you or a loved one can wear them.  Just let me know.  Thanks.  Offacue.

The Kardashians:  Waging war on professional athletes for your entertainment.  Who CHOOSES to go to Detroit?  Reggie Bush after surviving an encounter with one of these people.

I say we do immediate evac, dust off and nuke the site from orbit.  It's the only way to be sure.

If you only married someone as a reality show stunt, why would you buy the ring? Let the production company do it.

I have an engagement ring sitting in my safe. It is worth 0.5% of that monstrosity. I refuse to sell it back and lose half my money. Never again will I consider getting engaged.

So you keep it and lose all your money?

It's the principle of it all. I'm not desperate for the money and I loathe losing money to a slimy jewelry salesman. It's a dumb reason, but so was the reason for getting engaged in the first place. Eventually I'll give in and sell it, I'm sure.

Slightly off-topic note: This is why jewelry stores, wedding magazines, etc all use "average" (read: "arithmetic mean") prices instead of "median" prices when they tell you what a normal amount to spend is.

If 99 guys buy $1000 engagement rings for their fiancees and this jackass buys a $2M ring for his gold digger, the "average" price those guys paid can be stated as roughly $21,000. This is the number someone in the wedding business will tell you, and it has fark all to do with what that group actually did. The median price in my hypothetical data set, $1000, is much more informative.

It's kind of clever, in its way, but this is why kids should pay attention in math class. If you don't know what numbers mean, people can lie to you while saying nothing false.
