    $12,000 into thin air

    According to Reuters (via the Sun -- in London), a man in East London put together the perfect plan for proposing to his girlfriend: Put the ring in a helium balloon and then "pop" the question.

    Cute, right?

    However, he ran into trouble -- he lost grip of the balloon as he exited the shop and it floated away. He says he chased/searched for the balloon for two hours before giving up. I would too, if I were him -- it was a $12,000 ring.

    However, that's not even the clincher. I'll take it directly from the poor sap's mouth:
    "I thought I would give Leanne a pin so I could literally pop the question," he said. "But I had to tell her the story -- she went absolutely mad. Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring."
    Um, what?! Dude, if your girl is upset because you lost a ring YOU PAID FOR by accident, maybe she isn't the one. Maybe she was joking, but you don't joke about losing a $12,000 ring.

    If he walks away, he might have actually saved money.

    indyninja... Agreed!

    I'd have the balloon filled and then I'd put it inside a heavy duffel bag or something. No way would I be walking around like a little kid with the balloon tied to my wrist... Or worse yet, just holding the string!

    This guy sounds like the type that gets what he deserves...

    Different world, different folks.

    Now me, if I had 12K to buy a ring, I'd buy a 2K ring and spend the rest on a Barrett semi-auto 50 BMG with a nice piece of glass on top.
