The Skulls, Pt. III

What secret society does a gold ring with black triangles-- 10 or so of them-- around its circumference represent? Two of my friends in college (Ivy League) wore these identical rings. When asked about it, they would say "A friend gave it to me," and then change the subject. Rumor had it that these were secret society rings. Any ideas?

Would stainless steel make a crappy wedding band?

Would stainless steel make a crappy wedding band? I thought the screws in my hip were titanium, but they aren't. I was planning to have them melted them down and make my beau's ring out of them. Could this stainless steel suffice? Would a coating help?

What is a good replacement for a wedding ring?

I intend to propose to my girlfriend of 5 years. Problem is, we've decided not to buy wedding bands when we get married. And we have no idea what to replace it with. Tattooing on our fingers was brought up as an idea. (But too painful) Have anyone opted out on the standard "wedding ring" marriage? What item is a memorable and unconventional replacement for the wedding ring?

Antique Wedding Band Designs

My fiance and I have been looking for a unique wedding band design and we really like carved and engraved gold but not the stuff that looks like it has just been diamond cut. We found a really nice 1930's french wedding band with laurel on it Here. Any ideas where I could find more designs like this?? We are looking to stick to yellow gold and want something unique.

Paying a CC Balance with another CC (w/o Transferring)

I bought an engagement ring with the store CC and was given 6 months no interest. Well that six months is almost up, and I'd love to be able to get my CC's 1% cash-back. Problem is, if I transfer the money to my CC, I don't get the 1% back. I have the money and can pay it off, but 1% is a significant amount and I'd like to finagle that 1% into my wallet if at all possible. Is there anything I can do? Thanks for the help, SEINFELD

Selling an engagement ring.

Any Advice on the best way to sell a ring and not get ripped off? A friend of mine has an engagement ring he would like to sell (the relationship died some time ago, before he popped the question). It was originally worth $2,500 and he would like to maximize his return. Clearly, a pawn shop is not the way to go, but neither of us know what other options there are.

3001: The Final Odyssey picture

In Arthur C. Clarke's novel, "3001: The Final Odyssey", he postulates the idea of a "ring around the world", an artificial ring surrounding the entire globe, sitting in geostationary orbit, connected to the Earth with four space elevator towers at 90 degree intervals.

Has anyone ever rendered or painted what this would look like from space, or on Earth?

How to manage an unwieldy keychain

I have the key to get into my apartment. The key to open my apartment complex's gym. The one for the pool. The remote to open the gate to the complex. The mailbox key. My Albertson's Preferred Savings card. My car key. My car remote. My office key. Two random keys that unlock things I'm not sure I even own anymore, but other than that, I use all these keys on a daily basis. My keyring currently composes half the bulk of my outfit on any given day. Please help me. [more inside]

What could my friend do to avoid being bullied by his fiancee's family?

There's already been a question on AskMe about engagement ring advice, but I'm looking for something a little different. My buddy just spent $10,000 on an engagement ring because his fiance is feeling the pressure of being a brand new attorney in NYC and wanting to look the part. He didn't want to, but he did it anyway, cause her family was giving her the "If he loves you, he'd spend the money" spiel and it was really getting to her.

What could he have done at that point? She's a great girl, just a little prone to doing what her family wants her to do, so "RUN" isn't an appropriate response. Also, what is an appropriate price? $10,000 is about two months salary, but it seems extreme.

Google's not really any help....strangers who I've interacted with (ala MeFites) are significantly better than strangers I have not (ala some random webpage).

Cellphone rings on TV, I momentarily think it's my phone - what causes it?

Whenever a cellphone rings on a TV Show, I momentarily think it's my cellphone ringing -- or, if it doesn't sound like mine, some other phone in the same room as me. I don't just think this because the sound sounds like a phone; I think it because it sounds like the ringing is coming from outside the TV -- from closer to me than the other sounds coming from the TV set. Has anyone else experienced this? What causes this auditory illusion?
