I've been surfing arfcom for the last few hours w/ the tv on. They are talking more about the cowboys than the game took. I finally looked up and all I see is diamond earrings.

What's up w/that? Simply overpaid? Culture thing?

Badass?, They aren't my heroes.

4 carat earing, a sure sign you made it out of the ghetto.

its a wealthy persons version of the "let me slap $1500 dollar rims on my $500 car so I can prove to society that I have overcome opression and AM actually worth something as a person" mentality.

Hood rats do it with rims, expensive sneakers, and clothing. "Profeshunal" athletes do it with diamonds, cars, and homes

And Arfcommers do it with KAC Triple Tap breaks, Magpul UBR stocks, and S&B Short Dots.

My sister in law has a 5.5 carat round diamond ring. That fucking thing is HUGE, and is worth more that what I paid for my first house in 1993.

Well, better on the ears than in the teeth.

As far as I can re-call ball players have been sporting diamonds in there ears since 87?? They have gotten bigger over the years but I can't remember a time really when certain groups of folks didn't wear the biggest cheesiest diamond stud they could afford. Even the high-schoolers with their cubic zirconias back in my day.



For the record I had an experimental phase and wore a hanging cross in my left ear around the age of 14-16 (88-90) . That's my confession of the week, glad to get it off my chest . Damn hole is still there.

If I make fun of people wearing their pants down past their butt, is that also due to jealousy?

Ghetto is ghetto, regardless of price point.

Class has nothing to do with wealth or income.

If I am wearing any sort of earing it is because I have reached the top and have become truly excessive. After a wife, kids, multiple homes and cars, and an NFA collection, hookers for every day of the week, tons of blow, and nachos. If I still have money after that I would buy some gawdy earings. Those close to me would see it as a warning sign, that i was either going to die of some kind of designer drug overdose or in a shoot out with the IRS at a marina while trying to sail to the Caymans.
