Why Engagement Rings are a Scam


Recommended Posts

Yep, however this is not that good humor, because it is 1) true 2) it show, how easy is to manipulate people around the world.

And I find that sad and dangerous.

(it also open the question of choosing partner based on his social status (eg. money) )

Before the scam, the diamonds are rarely weard and in fact, wearing them are considered snobby and lame showing off So what to change this? Simple! Give plenty of these free to the Hollywood celebrities and sooner or later the public will catch on and wanna be like them. And it worked more that well.(same BS as people are pressured to believe that they could get get better when investing their money into gold/silver/platinum... first they mostly go for the gold certificates (eg. worthess paper gold when the bank get closed) and second - these gold things are not means of production of - for example - food. Or anything the other people really need...)

Another good example was how to get the womens to smoke. It was also considered rude before, and therefore womens did not smoke (at least not publicaly). That was good for them, but bad for the profits, so they hired a guy, who can come up with few tricks and pulled another propaganda miracle: womens are burning torches of freedom to protest against the male oppression!Laughable as this sounds (mainly because male come up with this idea and hired models to do it), it worked.

He even brag about it openly years ago, how good manipulation this was:

(at first I was like "kill that damn propagandist!", but then I realize that the problem is people, incapable to recognize that they are being manipulated, not that some people that will sieze the oportunity and do manipulate...)

    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/

    • Thank you! I'm looking through that thread now. It looks like I'll be dropping by Best Buy on my way home tonight to have a look at what they have! They have 10TBs in stock, so maybe I'll grab a couple!
