I think Ken was playing with you a bit! Carat is a unit of measure used to define the weight of diamonds
Karate is one of the marshal Arts ... hence the reference to Bruce Lee.

Apparently there are Carats and there are Karats (no "e")

www.gemaffair.com/content/Karat_vs_Carat.htm


Karat VS Carat
Carat
Gold has been traded all over the world thousands of years. For centuries it was the only standardized exchange in commerce. Diamond Grading. Carat is the common unit of measurement for all gemstones and refers to it's weight. CT is the common abbreviation used by the jewelry industry.


Karat
Karat is the unit of measurement for GOLD. It refers to the amount of PURE gold contained in an item. KT is the common abbreviation used by the jewelry industry. The following defines the percentages in the most common denominations of gold:

24KT contains 99.9% pure gold
18KT contains 75.0% pure gold
14KT contains 58.5% pure gold
10KT contains 41.7% pure gold

You will see fine jewelry items marked either way signifying the gold content. Usually when marking jewelry, manufacturers omit the decimal point and stamp the item 585 or 750, depending on the gold content.


A good way off topic, but still interesting!
:silly:

I guess I have too much time on my hands... but I used to read the entire comic section of the newspaper on Sunday morning...
:woohoo:

Has anyone tried an olloclip for your iPhone it has a Macro lens

I've been wanting to get one this would be a good excuse ;)

The macro lens is 10x with 12-15 view
And a nice plus is you can take a pic or video with it

Copy and past -source- www.olloclip.com/product/

Macro lens
The Macro lens applies roughly a 10X multiplier and allows you to focus the iPhone within 12-15mm of the subject. The Macro lens is cleverly concealed within the olloclip and can be accessed by unscrewing the Wide-Angle lens that is normally attached to it.

I might pick one up this weekend from bestbuy. I'll post my finding when and if I do.
