  1. It’s shit like 540 carat gems that make you question the value/worth of the nonsense humans collect.

    Like, maybe you really wanted a diamond tennis bracelet. It seemed reasonable. Then you read that some old lady owns/stole/is hoarding a 530 carat diamond that will do nothing but gather dust evermore and it suddenly occurs to you how fucking useless and stupid special rocks are.

    Down with stupid rocks.
