The devastated dad exhumed and cremated the 20-year-old's body before sending the ashes off to Switzerland so they could be compressed into the gemstone.RELATED: DWYANE WADE, GABRIELLE UNION ENGAGED
wildcardjack: Umm, how much carbon is left in ashes? The thing could be part of a scam.
syzygy whizz: Better than conflict diamonds however....
Lady Indica: And the resulting stones are synthetics so the only 'value' they have is sentimental. Which I suppose is also a good thing.
wxboy: syzygy whizz: Better than conflict diamonds however....If the two argued a lot, it might still be considered a conflict diamond.
SpdrJay: So do you have to wait until your relatives are dead to have this procedure performed on them?

Fart_Machine: Did he turn the tap dance into his crusade?
MrHappyRotter: What the story didn't tell you is that he had the diamond ground up and used the pieces to create a diamond saw blade. That blade was then used to carve a giant glass sculpture of his son. Then the glass sculpture was crushed and recycled into soda bottles. The father the meticulously collected his urine after drinking all the soda, and distilled it down to extract the urea. That was used as fertilizer for a rose bush in the garden. Subsequently, he gathered the rose petals to make a lovely tea. But it turned out that wasn't a rose bush, and instead was a deadly poisonous datura bush. So when the father died, he had his ashes flown to Switzerland, and the circle of life continues.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: How the fark do you mistake a datura for a rosebush?
nytmare: Turning ashes into diamonds has long been a commercial service.
ChadM89: I think it's a pretty cool idea.
rhiannon: ChadM89: I think it's a pretty cool idea.Me too. Some people pay more for a casket that will never be seen again. Well, hopefully won't.
megarian: Deal. I don't plan to let them outgrow their enclosures, but they will eat mostly carbon. Ya know...to diamond them up a bit. Like god intended.
gweilo8888: megarian: Deal. I don't plan to let them outgrow their enclosures, but they will eat mostly carbon. Ya know...to diamond them up a bit. Like god intended.Sounds like an excellent business plan. Now we just need to get to work on creating some inventory! How are you looking, for... oh, the next month or two? And is bruising of the mons and a tendency to walk funny for weeks at a time going to be a problem for you?
ultraholland: You know they just used carbon they had on-hand. Pops got ripped off.
megarian: Na, I'm good to go!I LOVE BUSINESS!!!
