Macedonians are nationalists (just like any small country, after all!) Mother Theresa of Calcuta, for instance, was born to Albanian parents in Skopje in 1910, baptized in the Roman Catholic Cathedral as Gonxha Bojaxhiu, and spent the first 18 years of her life in Skopje. Today Macedonia formally opened a Memorial House dedicated to the late Mother Teresa, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize winner, to commemorate her birth in Skopje. BUT -- it is built at a site that is a few hundred meters from her actual birthplace -- at the real place where she was born a church was erected. All this is done in order to portrait her as a Macedonian from Skopje when in actuality she is an Albanian born in the city of Skopje. Macedonia is notorious when it comes to national heroes being "stolen," just like the case with Alexander the Great is.

Speaking of virgins/whores, here it is a joke: Jesus came upon a small crowd who had surrounded a young woman they believed to be an adulteress. They were preparing to stone her to death.To calm the situation, Jesus said: "Whoever is without sin among you, let them cast the first stone."Suddenly, an old lady at the back of the crowd picked up a huge rock and lobbed it at the young woman, scoring a direct hit on her head. The unfortunate young lady collapsed dead on the spot.Jesus looked over towards the old lady and said: "Mum, sometimes you really piss me off."
On the Internet the joke's last line goes, "Mom, sometimes you really piss me off." Would you claim ownership of a new joke by having made the modification?

Oh please, don't get me started with Britney Spears - she's an idiot! Why do you blame the culture - she knew what she's getting into! They don't say in vain, "If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen!"

I've been only once in Greece (my brother used to live there) and I surely did take advantage to visit it! I can safely say that Athens is famous mostly because of Acropolis and its ancient history! When I immigrated to the US (my brother got me and several others to the US on a special C visas all the people at my work was jealous I had been in Athens!

Cut is considered by some appraisers to be the most important one out of the 4Cs.The word "cut" actually refers to two different traits: 1) overall shape and 2) the make -- how well the shape is cut, including proportions, finish, and symmetry. On this page we will discuss how the basic shape of a diamond significantly affects the price. The primary wholesale price list (published monthly as the Rapaport Diamond Report gives prices for 3 shapes. Rounds and marquise shapes have their own unique price charts, while the charts for pear shapes are used for all other shapes. BTW, The Rapaport Diamond Report is the monthly wholesale diamond price list used by dealers worldwide to keep up with changing market prices. But the list is not easy to use, in fact, most stores use the list incorrectly and pass their ignorance on to consumers when they sell stones. The Rapaport Diamond Report is intended for use in all situations in the diamond market. It is used by new, one-time buyers in New York City looking for a single stone, and it is also used by dealers who trade in millions of carats every year. So the prices on the Rapaport list are high cash asking prices used as the starting point for negotiations. Different dealers can buy at different discounts from this list. These discounts are the key. If your dealer is well-connected, he can buy at better discounts. If he is efficient and keeps costs down, he can offer you a diamond at such a good price that it's almost like buying wholesale. http://wholesalediamonds.pricescope.com/But it is complicated. Every shape sells at different discounts. Some shapes are not discounted at all. And these days, the cut grade of a diamond can make a huge difference in the discounts. Ideal cuts can actually sell for more than Rap, even to a dealer in the case of a super-ideal, which is what we call stones that have hearts and arrow patterns.
