diamonds are bad and their only value comes from blood and false scarcity
@pbandkate They have scientific uses but they're just fuckin' minerals. Fuck DeBeers.
@breakfastgolem oh sure, but there’s like literally zero real reason for them to be so expensive. diamonds are, relatively, very common.
@pbandkate I want them to be everywhere. Windows made out of 'em. Make diamonds as common and as utilitarian as glass or bricks.
@breakfastgolem now that’s some champagne socialism i can get behind
*my eyes glaze over as I stare at my diamond ring* "you are beautiful and wonderful and rare"
@Jessicacrets v a l i d
@pbandkate I was just thinking the other day how we can make diamonds that are even better than the ones we dig out of the ground and you can't tell the difference without specially designed tests, so the diamond industry spends a lot of money convincing people you're a cheap jerk if you buy a lab grown diamond
@interneteh diamonds literally have the best marketing in the goddamn world
@pbandkate it's literally a cartel, and they play on people's emotions. Sucks.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
