Here's the other side of the seventies: Gasolin' This Is My Life 1978 - YouTube[^]
I would've posted a RIP for Kim Larsen a week ago if I thought anyone besides me an Johnny cared.
His music was a part of my childhood.
I thought anyone besides me, Johnny and Bono cared.
OH! Don't forget SoMad! He ought to care as well!
Of course, Bono had no idea who Kim Larsen was, he was just trying to score cheap points...
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
I spent 80€ apiece and we were both fine with it - she would have chosen something even cheaper. The 11 years of relationship mattered much, much more. And financially, it has been a lot better spending 3k on the wedding travels rather than a lump of almost gold which gets entangled in the keyboard while typing.
I hear you, but I have never had an issue with my gold wedding band getting entangled in a keyboard....ever, and I am on the keyboard 8-10 hours a day. Must be a lot of gold in those "other" wedding bands.
In West EU, expensive rings are commonly frowned upon.
In part because of the bad press associated with the diamond trade (= all diamonds are conflict-diamonds by default)
and in part as a rejection to the American movie ideal of getting on your knees and presenting an expensive ring (= imitating movies is considered a sign of being immature or insincere)
As a result, anything goes as long as it has personal significance.
The majority of people opt for a plain ring or one with fake stones in the $20-$100 range.
Not a lot of people actual wear them in public.
