are you saying that people are alerting on threads because they think

am I understanding this correctly?

Would the nation be better off if the south would go away?

Would you personally prefer it if the south would just quietly go away?

World's Largest Emerald Up for Auction

By Joanna Douglas, Shine Fashion and Beauty Editor | Fashion 17 hours ago

A 57,000-carat emerald, which is said to be the world's largest, will be sold on January 28 at Western Star Auctions in British Columbia, Canada. The giant jewel weighs 11.5 kilograms and is around 12 inches long.
On Monday, the gem was appraised at $1.15 million since it is only a rough cut stone. But Western Star Auctions owner Mike Odenbach told Huff Post Canada he thinks it could fetch more at auction. "It's not unusual for gemstones to sell a lot higher than their appraised value, just depending on who wants to possess the largest emerald in the world," he said. Odenbach described the dark green emerald as "nothing short of spectacular."
The emerald was discovered in Brazil and cut in India. Rare gem dealer Regan Reany of Calgary got an email about the stone and thought it was too good to be true. But the emerald is, in fact, very real and heading to Kelowna, British Columbia with armed security. The auction house has ensured the jewel will be heavily guarded until the auction later this month.
"The gemstone is named 'Teodora' and rough translation is 'God's Gift,'" Odenbach told Huff Post. "To me we're being given an opportunity to expose ourselves internationally as an auction company that can handle items like this. You know, it really does feel like a gift."

wouldn't this topic be more suited for American History

or Speculation (as in very Creative)

or perhaps

Theory (as in the utmost of Conspiracy)

or maybe even

Trash Thread (as in the most useless trash talk to be engaged in on the internets)
