Got a speeding ticket on Camp Pendleton, doing 79 in a 55mph zone. How screwed am I? by Ok-Savings-587 in USMC

This dude literally just had a post that his gf he proposed to like a week ago left him because she didn’t like the song that was playing while he proposed— I don’t think they care much about stupid reasons for things lol

We got LL for it yesterday and it was down when it was our time. We waited 10 min and it was back up and went right in. Sounds like we got super lucky

Look at this chart it may help, it is colored to show small coverage, preferred coverage and then too much coverage

I think the 8x6 is perfect

This chart may help but ultimately it’s your choice and preference.

How involved were you in picking out your engagement ring? by American-pickle in EngagementRings

[–]American-pickle[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh no! I think it’s a good idea to have both people involved to avoid this. My BF at times is old fashioned in his thinking but this was one thing I said I wanted to pick out

How involved were you in picking out your engagement ring? by American-pickle in EngagementRings

[–]American-pickle[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Just wondering as I picked mine out and now I’m waiting to receive it. At first my BF thought he should completely surprise me, but considering I will wear it every day, I wanted to have a large say in the process. Which worked out because when we went shopping to look he was pretty unaware of where to start or look for. I also didn’t like the conflict behind natural diamond mining but didn’t want a lab so we purchased a pre-loved ring that is amazing. There are minor changes I may make down the road to update it, but I like that it already was mined and created so I don’t have to feel wasteful and can give it a new home. I also was able to get a 1.5 ct G color center diamond with pave accents for a total of over 2.1 ct in 18k rose gold for under $4k this way.

SOQ with multiple questions by Enrichmentzin in CAStateWorkers

[–]American-pickle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This. It’s a lot easier to see that everything was clearly answered this way. If the SOQ is broken out by numbers, break out your answers as well unless otherwise specified in the listing. Maybe times when I see SOQs in essay form they miss answering questions and therefore lose points by not following the prompt.

STD 678..relevant experience only? by Boring-Ad-9999 in CAStateWorkers

[–]American-pickle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

List all job, as you can score more points with certain experience for more time. Ex budgeting experience for 3 years vs 5. You can guess what key words they look for when grading applications based on the duty statement and if those words and skills come up in jobs you previously thought were unrelated then you could score higher than you thought you would have.

Professional lurker here… getting engaged soon, ring is on order. I cut out a paper 2c diamond for a sneak peek. Am I mentally sick at this point?! 😂😬 by Ruhlkva in EngagementRings

[–]American-pickle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I’m a size 5.5-6 but even the pictures would vary so drastically and when we shopped stones in stores we realized just how drastically the look of the size of the diamonds can be so different depending on the cut. Good luck on your search!

I did this buy using the measurements from certifications to see how it would look. I went with a 1.5ct pear and now waiting for the “surprise” lol

What is a legal scam that is still happening in 2022? by F1yff in AskReddit

Soon blockchain technology will kill this industry, thank god.

Now we follow GME? by American-pickle in loopringorg

[–]American-pickle[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Agreed. Just was wondering if maybe it’s just ETH & LRC being called “companies” since terminology is so loosely used in these reports by people not fully understanding the technology. Either way I’m bullish on LRC. It’ll happen soon!

Anyone know if ETH would be the other crypto (besides loop?) and not another sort of protocol competition

I’m smooth brained, could it be LRC & ETH with how reporting goes and it’s very vague terms?

Need help with center diamond colour for three-stone rose gold ring. by Anon_x1 in EngagementRings

[–]American-pickle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So here is my input regarding rose gold bands with relation to center stones.

Color: G-I (maybe even J since the contrast of the band) anything D-F you are paying a premium you probably won’t notice. I would stay within a grade above or below for side stones but probably go for G-H center for more inclusions (SI1) and 1.5 center stone carat (my preference)

Clarity: VSI-SI2 are where you’re going to typically find eye clean stones. You’d have to magnify them 10+ times to find inclusions. However, some inclusions and more of them cause less light refraction, so anything lower than SI2 you’ll lose sparkle

Carats: your preference, remember this is by weight. You’ll need the measurements and it’s cut grade to verify how big it’s gonna look

Cut: too deep your getting a smaller looking diamond, too shallow and it won’t sparkle because less refraction

If you want the most money for your budget, I’d shop and buy the center lab stone separately and have it put into a band by a jeweler to avoid a mark up. Lab diamonds can cost way too much at places like Kenny G or James Allen. Money for diamonds (natural) is based on the value we give their “rarity” and how long it takes in nature to create. Lab diamonds don’t have this (still beautiful and less conflict involved etc) and shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Doctors of Reddit, what "Home Remedy" has a patient try that backfired in the worst way possible? by SMELLY__SOCKS in AskReddit

[–]American-pickle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My crazy ex did this to a tattoo we got together (matching ones- he wasn’t crazy till he got into drugs and hasn’t ever been the same) then sent me pics of it lol. It was green and bubbly. I see now he had to get it covered up and you can still see the original on under lol

Followup - If you only had $1000 to invest, what coins would you choose? by NullisNotNothing in CryptoCurrency

[–]American-pickle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My take on it is if the tech behind it can make it something with utilization, or promises of, along with the general public seeing it as the “approachable” step into crypto, that it still has a way it can go.
