To Have A Luck Like That!

Since I don’t have a job anymore I have returned to my old pass time of “sifting” through the cyber world for odd news. (Yup, you guessed right, I really have nothing else to do!!).  So here’s a short post of a news piece I found.

This piece I found today (in Yahoo) really makes me wonder what it would be like to have a luck like this guy. The post is about a guy from Wisconsin who found a 1.2 Carat Diamond while  sifting for gold in the mud from a friend’s well. He looks for gold and finds a diamond.Now isn’t that luck or what?

All the time we spend playing in the mud and what did we get! A big nothing,  if you don’t count the mud stains and slime.

This made me wonder what i would do if it were me in that situation… I’m not that big on the jewelry front  or keep it for a rainy day thing. So guess i would just sell it, instant gratification and money to enjoy things that I do like.

What do you think you would do??

Here’s the full article, if you want to read: Man finds 1.2-carat diamond in mud from friend’s well

Now, I ‘ll get back to my form of sifting.

News That’s Just Absurd!

In case you haven’t heard it yet Nicholas cage might be a vampire!

Nothing to post about today other than this piece of “news” I found while going through my daily routine of checking Yahoo News. After seeing this the first question that popped into my mind is: ‘Don’t people have anything better to do these days?!’ Someone found some photos taken during Civil War era and in them there is this photo of a guy who looks like Nicholas cage and he put it up on eBay. The rest of the people who were in the album were identified except this guy. The photo is guaranteed to be an original. It was actually going to sell for 1 million. At this point my first question is replaced by “There are people ready to pay 1 million for this!!!!” .But unfortunately for the guy the site pulled the listing.

This is the description given in the site:

” Original c.1870 carte de visite showing a man who looks exactly like Nick Cage. Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents himself once every 75 years or so. 150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult, or a talk show host.”

Guess Twilight got it right, vampires CAN be photographed. LOL!
