Okay so I've got an inkling of what is considered proper for a twenty fifth wedding anniversary gift, and the fiftieth anniversary is a given, even the seventy fifth and hundredth have some traditional gift, but face it we are living longer with each consecutive generation so what's a guy to do when the Tri or Centi-centenial rolls around?
Well just a mere fifty light years from here, [link], lies a diamond 2'500 miles across just begging for a solar sail tug to drag it back to this solar system where it could be gently nudged into Saturn's gravitational field.
This 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 carat natural gemstone could adorn the outer rings of Saturn, (without a clasp or anything), and overly romantic octogenarians could buy a piece of, or, (by the time it gets here), take a trip with their betrothed to the ultimate honeymoon rock.

       That's interesting...and very cool.
I thought this was going to be drilling finger sized holes in large dimonds.

       What a good idea but a dreadful article. I'm with R. Buckminster-Fuller.

       Of course, this is just a diamond in the rough. It needs to have a kilometer of graphite and crap scraped off (that the sellers forgot to mention), and it needs to be faceted. That’s going to be a bit of a job.

       I'm doing the best I can to not type an MFD here... lots of bad science, magic, etc. etc...   

       I'm letting it slide for two reasons: 1) 'cause I thought the article was interesting. 2) I think this category is just gonna breed this stuff.
