    I pulled the article from my brother's website. He's a Republican news-whore. :) He probably changed that part of the story so his readers would get the gist of what that dollar amount would be for us Americans....


    And I like the visual of Tammy with the levers granting karma... hehehhee....

      I see. That's how most people do it, but I think it's kind of misleading. Like on house hunters international they will say a house is 100,000 pounds equivilent to 200,000 dollars. But, it doesn't exactly work like that because they wouldn't be paying in dollars.

      So I read $12,000 & think wow that's one expensive ring. Well, I still think $6,000 is pretty expensive but I'm cheap :)

      We need an emoticon of tammy pulling levers. That's how the interwebnets work right?

          An idiot like that deserved to lose the ring, and a bitch like his girlfriend didn't deserve to get the ring:|
